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.
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 on-line via E-consulate https://secure.e-konsulat.gov.pl/
