Family members of a Polish citizen
I am a Polish citizen. If I get married, will my spouse automatically become Polish?
Do my children qualify for Polish citizenship along with me?
My paternal grandfather was a Polish citizen. Does my father need to confirm Polish citizenship before I can get mine?
You can skip generations in the process of Polish citizenship confirmation. What’s more, not everyone needs to go through it. It is enough to confirm none of your family has lost Polish citizenship on the way. That means you can skip your father (or mother in the case of maternal grandfather) and have your Polish citizenship confirmed without your parent going through the process. In other words, your parent does not need to confirm their citizenship for you to confirm yours. We will need some documents and information related to your parents such as a birth certificate and marriage certificate to prove kinship and the fact you are directly related to your grandfather. If in the future your father or mother would like to confirm their Polish citizenship, the process will be less complicated as all the work of confirming the family’s Polish citizenship will be already done.
Can my other family members get their Polish citizenship along with me?
A massive advantage of becoming a Polish citizen is that you can bring your family on board. You only need to have one Polish ancestor to be eligible for Polish citizenship by descent. All other family members, descendants of your Polish ancestor, such as your siblings, cousins, parents, aunts, and uncles can confirm Polish citizenship as well and become Polish citizens. If you are already a confirmed Polish citizen, it is enough to give us your consent to use your file, and your research findings, and your family members related to you by blood, will be able to use it for their Polish citizenship applications. Your children can go through the process along with you. You can have their Polish citizenship confirmed and get them Polish passports at the same time. Your spouse, despite not being a Polish citizen, gets equal rights to yours to live and work within the European Union with no time limits or formal restrictions.
