Eligibility Requirements

Polish citizenship is carried down from generation to generation through the right of blood, unless conditions along the road, as stipulated by law, cause it to be lost.

There is no limit to how many generations you can go back to show your Polish lineage (as long as there are Polish records confirming your ancestor held Polish citizenship after 1920).

Most people who have Polish ancestors (parents, grandparents, or great-grandparents) qualify for Polish citizenship by descent.

Benefits of Polish
Dual Citizenship

The main benefits of having Polish Citizenship:

One of the strongest passports in the world with 180+ visa free countries

The ability to work, reside and study in Italy and across the 27 EU member states (e.g. Spain, France, Germany, Netherlands etc.) without the need of a Visa. EU citizens are often prioritized over people from outside the EU for many professional and educational opportunities.

Students who are citizens of Poland can study in public educational institutions for free, and upon admission to EU universities, they can receive scholarships and grants or tuition discounts

Thanks to the registration of an insurance policy, holders of Polish passports receive free medical care and additional government payments.

My spouse is Polish, do I qualify for Polish citizenship?

Spouses of Polish nationals by descent who live outside of Poland are normally ineligible for citizenship. A spouse of an EU citizen, on the other hand, has several privileges equal to their citizen spouse. Non-Poles who live in Poland with their spouse face distinct rules. Naturalization is achievable after a certain period of time, but the rules are complicated.

Are my children or grandchildren eligible for Polish citizenship by descent?

Generally speaking children and grandchildren are eligible to apply subject to a few limitations. If your children are under the age of 18, they can be automatically included in your application for citizenship. They will need to individually apply for passports. If they are 18 or older and qualify, they will need to apply separately. Your grandchildren can also apply.

Can I include may Spouse on my application?"

Your spouse can get a residency permit to live with you.

Will I need to go to Poland to become a Polish citizen?

No. If you are a Polish citizen by descent or ancestry, there is no residency requirement nor are you required to go to Poland at any time during or after this process.

Can I submit my Polish citizenship application in English?

All official documentation, application forms, statements and archival records must be translated into Polish by a sworn translator
