GMI Legal Update: Changes in The Process of Obtaining Polish Visas in India


Following the decision made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to end cooperation with outsourcing companies intermediating in Polish visa processes, the government has published official information about changing the method of applying for Polish visas in India.

From Tuesday, September 26 this year until further notice, all applications for Polish visas and appeals regarding Polish visas in India may only be submitted directly to official diplomatic missions, i.e. the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in New Delhi or the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Mumbai. Visa appointment dates are booked via the online e-konsulat system, with the appointment dates allocated by lottery.

As a consequence of the above changes, the time needed to obtain a visa to Poland in India may be significantly longer. With this in mind, we recommend planning the employment process of a foreigner from India even several months in advance.

Official information published by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is available on the government website here.
