Visa Requirements for Poland

EU and Schengen members:

Poland is a member of the European Union and a part of the Schengen Agreement, so the citizens of EU countries, and delegates within the Schengen Area do not require visas.

A detailed list of visa-free countries and all travel requirements are available on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Republic of Poland.

Non-EU members:

If you require a visa, we advise you to obtain and a visa application Letter of Support issued by the conference organizers. Please note that the Letter of Support can be provided only to delegates who have registered and paid the conference fee.

We also advise you to check with the Polish consular services in your country list of documents required and the waiting period to obtain your visa.
In case of visa refusal, we will not hold responsibility if you are requested to cancel your participation to the conference.
