Do I Need a Visa to Visit Poland?

Most other nationals will need a visa.

Non-Canadians must apply IN PERSON at the Polish Embassy or Consulate for the European Customs Treaty Zone visa. Visa seekers are advised that they must seek visas directly and in person from the embassy or consulate as they will be interviewed and fingerprinted and biometrically scanned

Non-Canadians must make an appointment directly with the appropriate embassy or consulate and attend the IN PERSON interview and fingerprinting. You must contact the embassy for the appointment. The embassy will tell you which documents to bring to your appointment.

Poland is a signatory of the European Customs Agreement on border control and visa standardization.

Due to government regulations, no third party can assist you with your visa needs. Travelers are advised that they must seek visas directly from the Embassy or Consulate in their consular region, even if it is not in their home province.
