In case you live abroad, you need to lodge your Polish passport application with the nearest Polish Consulate General or Embassy of Poland with the consular section. What’s important, you can only pick up your Polish passport from the place you lodged your Polish passport application. What does it mean? If you have applied to the Polish Consulate General in London, you can only pick up your Polish passport from the Polish Consulate General in London. Some Polish Consulates offer postage of the original passport via courier, but these need to be confirmed directly with them and arranged on the day of the appointment.
You need to lodge your Polish passport application in person
You can count on our help with all the necessary documents and forms needed for the lodgment of your Polish passport application. You still need to lodge it in person as you are required to leave your fingerprints since the passport is biometric.
Also please keep in mind that the Polish passport application fee is payable directly at the Polish consulate on the day of the passport appointment. You can also make a bank transfer payment in advance and print out the confirmation. Please check directly with the Polish Consulate you plan to lodge your Polish passport application for available options.
A Polish passport is valid for 10 years and it takes around 2-3 months to have a Polish passport issued. In case of emergency, you can apply for a temporary Polish passport which can be issued in a couple of days, or even at the spot on the day of the appointment.
How strong is a Polish passport? What are the benefits of a Polish passport?
A Polish passport is an international travel document issued to nationals of Poland and may also serve as proof of Polish citizenship. Besides enabling the bearer to travel internationally and serving as an indication of Polish citizenship, the Polish passport facilitates the process of securing assistance from Polish consular officials abroad or other European Union member states in case a Polish consular is absent.
Once you have a Polish passport, you can enter the European Union without any visa. A Polish passport also allows you to live and work anywhere within the European Union without any limitations and time restrictions.
Polish citizen spouse and children rights in the EU
As a Polish citizen, you have a right to bring your non-EU spouse with you to the European Union, not only Poland. Based on the fact he or she is married to a Polish citizen, your spouse will get similar working and residential rights within the EU. If you are a Polish citizen, your kids can get Polish citizenship too. You can apply for their Polish passports and secure their EU citizen rights for the future.
