Visa Waiver for Poland

October 4, 2019 is an historic day in the relations between the United States and the Republic of Poland. Today, President Donald J. Trump announced that the Department of State has formally nominated Poland for entry into the Visa Waiver Program. This is an important step in continuing to increase economic, security, cultural, and people-to-people connections between our two nations.

Now that Poland has been nominated, the Department of Homeland Security will take necessary action, as soon as possible, to assess Poland’s entry into the program. If Poland is designated as a Visa Waiver Program country, its nationals would be authorized for visa-free travel to the United States for business and tourism. The bilateral relationship between the United States and Poland has never been stronger, and this would serve as a remarkable accomplishment for both countries.

The Polish American Congress has rallied for Poland’s admission into the Visa Waiver Program since 2003. Today’s announcement is the fulfillment of these efforts. The PAC, as well as other Polish American organizations and individuals that have sought Visa Waiver for Poland, extend their heartfelt appreciation to President Trump for his historic announcement today. Thank you, Mr. President!
