Study Visa & Residency

 

EU Citizens

If you are an EU citizen or a European Economic Area (Norway, Iceland, Lichtenstein) citizen, you do not need a visa to enter Poland. However, you need a passport and a residence permit to study in Poland, because EU citizens can stay in Poland without these documents for no longer than 90 days. When you arrive, you should immediately apply for a one-year temporary residence permit from the voivodeship where you are living. The residence permit needs to be extended every year until the completion of your studies

Non-EU Citizens

If you are a non-EU national accepted as a student of our programme, you will have to apply for a Polish student visa in your country of origin prior to your coming to Poland. You can download an application form for a Polish visa from here: https://secure.e-konsulat.gov.pl/.

As a student you will need to request a multiple-entry visa, which permits the residence on the territory of Poland for one year (either continuous residence or multiple consecutive period of residence).

 

IMPORTANT: You must apply for a temporary residence permit (valid for a period of one year) in the Lublin Voivodeship Office no later than on the last day of legal residence in Poland. You can find more detailed information on applying for a residence permit here:
