HOW TO GET POLISH CITIZENSHIP BY DESCENT

If you aspire to receive the full benefit of Polish Citizenship by descent and get a secondary Polish passport, you will need to collect a few documents to earn your Citizenship. If you have grandparents, parents or other relatives in your direct bloodline who has or had the Polish Citizenship, in the past, you may be eligible for Polish Citizenship. Thanks to the new Polish citizenship law, people who have never spent a day in Poland might benefit from the luxuries and perks of being an EU citizen.

Application Process and General Requirements

Documentation:

 

To get the second passport of Poland, you must get all the documents proving the Polish Citizenship of your Ancestors. Some of the documents are as follows: 

 

  • Polish ID Card.
  • Polish Passport.
  • Registration Card
  • Book of Military Records.
  • Re-emigration Registration Card.
  • Birth Certificate.
  • License.
  • Death Certificate.
  • Marriage Certificate.

 

Pay stamp Duties:

Once all documents have been rectified and translated correctly, the payment of stamp duty is due. Paying stamp duty is a must thing for your Polish passport application and to register your birth and marriage certificates in Poland.

 

Fill out an application for Citizenship by descent

 

The filling of an application form for Polish Citizenship needs to be completed in the Polish language only.

Submit Your Application for Polish Citizenship:

 

Once all your required documents are collected, and application forms have been completed, the package with all required and essential documents must be delivered to the Provincial Office in Warsaw, Poland.

 

Register Birth/Marriage Certificates in Poland

A Polish passport can only be issued based on a Polish birth certificate. If you were born outside of Poland, your birth certificate must be registered at a Polish department, called a Polish registry office. If you’re married abroad, the marriage certificate also needs to be registered in Poland.

 

Apply for Polish Passport:

The last step will be the only one that requires you to leave the house: requesting and collecting your secondary Polish passport at your local consulate. 

 

Nationality processing time: 

Typically, the process takes about 2 to 3 years in total. Nevertheless, there is handy advice you can use to speed the process up thoroughly. Upon submission of your application, the Polish government has a period of 1 full year to provide their response legally.
