ATTENTION:

The requested documents should be up-to-date (max. 3 months old).

The original documents and their copies must be presented by the applicant.

Additional documents may be requested by the Consul.

Please note that a failure to submit the required documents listed above, may result in a refusal of application.

How not to get denied a Polish visa

First of all, it is worth taking seriously the preparation of all documents. Check them carefully several times before they reach the consul on the table.

Pay special attention to documents that confirm the purpose of your trip.

In no case do not fake a single document. This is especially true of job invitations from Polish employers, as well as income certificates.

Before applying for a visa at the embassy, ​​pay off all your criminal records and debts.

Behave decently, not only when applying for a visa, but also when using it – while in Poland. Violation of the law in this country will necessarily entail problems with obtaining subsequent visas.

Carefully fill out the form. Just in case, check your passport again – the validity period and the presence of blank pages.

It is also worth remembering that having a visa does not guarantee that you will be able to freely enter the territory of Poland or another country. At the border, you must have with you an insurance policy, an invitation to work (if you are traveling on a work visa), the necessary funds.

The main reasons for refusing a Polish visa

 Theoretically, a Polish visa can be denied to anyone who, according to the Polish consulate, poses a “threat to public order, internal security or public health” of the Schengen countries. Refusal of a visa to Poland can be issued for various reasons and at first glance trifling.

But in reality, most often, a visa is denied for the following reasons:

– The provision of incomplete data in the questionnaire and other documents, at best, in such a situation, the consulate may also not deny a person the possibility of obtaining a visa, but may request additional materials for an interview.

– The applicant provides a fake, falsified or distorted travel document. For example fake housing reservation.

– Indication of deliberately false facts in the documents, for example, the amount of your regular income, address of residence and any other data.

– The applicant does not provide confirmation of the purpose and conditions of the proposed stay, which is a matter of doubt for the consulate for the true purpose of your visit to Poland. Or the applicant does not sufficiently substantiate the purpose of his trip.

– The applicant does not provide evidence of the existence of sufficient means of subsistence, both for the duration of the intended stay and for returning to his country of origin or residence, or for transit to a third country to which he is guaranteed admission.

– The applicant has already stayed in Poland and other Schengen countries for an acceptable period of stay. This can be based on a Schengen visa or a visa with a limited territorial effect for three months during the current six-month period.

– The applicant who has applied for a visa is included in the SIS list, persons from whom they cannot cross the borders of the Schengen countries.

– Travel fines that you did not pay on your last trip to Poland or other European countries. Data on them has been stored for decades, and can always come up at the wrong time for you.

– Refusal to attend the interview. For some reason, some applicants simply do not come to the consulate on the day of their appointment for an interview. Naturally, no one can endure such an interview, and the applicant automatically receives a visa refusal.

– Passport mismatch with the established requirements: it expires before the end of your stay in Poland, or it simply does not have blank pages. If you know that such a problem may arise, be sure to bring a clean passport with you.

– Misuse of the past permission to enter Poland. This can happen if you previously illegally worked on a tourist visa, issued a tour to Poland, but did not participate in it on the territory of the state.

Feedbacks of Turkish students about visa procedures- main problems

 Also, in handling of some applications, the “information deficit” between the consulate officials and the intermediary agents lead to unintended delays or complication, which put the applicants in a difficult situation. The processing of the visa also take a lot of time; so long that students miss their first week(s) of classes and end up without accommodation and since their passport is in the consulate, they are bound to wait. “Due to delays on my visa application, I had to start my exchange programme (*Erasmus) two months later than my friends”. Student, Ankara

“Judging my family’s income as insufficient, the consulate officials asked me to find a third person to be my guarantor. This put me in a very difficult situation. I have to find someone and furthermore ask that someone to give me eight different documents. They do not accept the originals in Turkish so that will cost me an additional 350 €.” Student, İstanbul
