Polish Citizenship

Polish Citizenship by descent

Polish Citizenship by descent is a procedure of confirmation that one held Polish citizenship. All you need to do is have Polish ancestors, either on the paternal or maternal side of the family. As Poland has Ius Sanguinis rule of passing the citizenship, it means Polish citizenship is inherited from the moment of birth. It is contrary to the rule of land (Ius Soli) that provides citizenship based on the country of birth. It means that Polish citizenship can be passed from generation to generation without even acknowledging the fact. There is, of course, a matter of checking whether you meet the Polish citizenship requirements. If you would like to have your Polish citizenship by descent checked or tested, you could not come to a better place! We are offering a free eligibility check – all you have to do is to fill our survey or reach out to us and our specialists will contact you within 2 business days. Once the eligibility for the Polish citizenship confirmation is checked and we are able to prove Polish citizenship, we can carry out the procedure. It ends with granting you an official government-issued Polish Citizenship Certificate that is exchangeable for the Polish passport in any Polish consulate of your choosing. With that, you are now an EU citizen with full rights and privileges that come with it. Being Polish Citizen equals holding a European passport, as Poland is a member state. With such a Polish-EU passport you can travel freely within the EU’s Schengen Area and not spend time in queues at the airports or to government agencies posting the legal paperwork normally needed to legalize your stay. EU citizen rights mean you can work, study and travel freely in any of the member states. Such European citizenship also extends to your siblings, children and grandchildren so all your family members can enjoy those rights too. Confirmation of Polish citizenship is the easiest way, compared to the requirements of other methods – that usually means mandatory residence or learning the language. Proving Polish Citizenship, which is your birthright, is a great way to secure all of those privileges.
