    new Polish citizenship act

     

    As of August 15th, 2012, the new Citizenship Act of 2009, is to replace the currently binding Polish Citizenship Act of 1962. The new Act http://dziennikustaw.gov.pl/DU/2012/161 introduces several new legal procedures such as the reinstatement of Polish citizenship. It also gives new competences to regional governors (voivods) in the field of naturalization, which will ease the procedures of acquiring Polish citizenship for foreigners, who live or work in Poland.

     

    The new Law introduces also a new standardized application form for the confirmation of possession of Polish citizenship. For more information please refer to website of the Ministry for Internal Affairs in Warsaw:
