Who needs a VISA to visit Poland?

The visa requirements for visiting Poland depend on the nationality of the traveler and the purpose of the visit.

Citizens of some countries, such as the European Union member states, the United States, Canada, and Australia, do not need a visa to enter Poland for stays up to 90 days within a 180-day period for tourism or business purposes.

Citizens of other countries may need to apply for a Schengen visa to enter Poland for short-term stays. The Schengen visa allows the holder to stay in Poland and other Schengen countries for up to 90 days within a 180-day period.

It is important to note that VISA requirements can change, so it is always best to check with the nearest Polish embassy or consulate in your country or the relevant immigration authorities for the latest information on visa requirements.
