Poland is part of the Schengen Agreement. A valid passport entitles EU and North American citizens to a three-month stay in Poland. Visas are usually not required but non-EU citizens are advised to check with the Embassy of Poland. Visitors needing a visa for entry to Poland are strongly advised to make their application in their home country well in advance.
Visa supporting letters for Exhibitors and Exhibition Visitors
» Visa Supporting Letter dedicated for Exhibition Visitors is available after registration at https://panel.cede.pl/visitor/login
» Visa Supporting Letter for Exhibitors is available for registered exhibitors only.
Exhibitor registration is completed after:
• Receipt by the Organiser payment of the registration fee and at least 50% of the ordered exhibition area.
• Allocating the booth
• Obtaining exhibitor’s reference number
The Visa Supporting Letter is intended only to facilitate visitors’ travel and visa arrangements and does not imply provisions of any financial or other support.
The Organizer will accept no responsibility if you do not receive a visa or do not receive it on time, or if you are unable to travel to the event due to other reasons.
In case of non-receipt of the visa by the exhibitor, a possible refund of prepayments made is possible upon notification of cancellation of participation in the exhibition by June 20, 2023. The registration fee is non-refundable (CEDE 2023 Exhibition Rules and Regulations, item 6.).
How to proceed?
Please book your appointment at least 3 months in advance (especially during the summer holiday time) of your trip to avoid unnecessary stress & disappointment. Although a visa currently takes about 10-12 working days to process, you have to consider obtaining an appointment as well.
Please carry out the necessary formalities yourself. You have to visit the consulate office personally and bring all required documents arranged in proper order.
The appointment for a visa can be arranged only online via E-consulate https://secure.e-konsulat.gov.pl/
