There is a huge appetite for European passports this 2023, with the Polish passport ranked #3 in the world according to the Passport Index Ranking – making Polish citizenship a golden ticket of freedom to work, live or study in any of the 27 EU member states. For over 20 years, Polaron has been assisting people just like you to get EU citizenship. Read on to discover five benefits of becoming a Polish citizen.
Benefit 1: The EU At Your Fingertips
Did you know a Polish passport allows you to travel between the 27 member states freely, with no visas and remain there with no restrictions? This means you can stay in the EU for as long as you want, work and look for work in any EU member country. On top of this, you can be a dual citizen, so you do not have to give up your existing foreign citizenship when becoming a Polish citizen.
Benefit 2: Transfer Citizenship Through Generations
Once a Polish citizen, you can extend your citizenship to your children and grandchildren. There is no limit on generations and the only thing they will need to do is confirm their citizenship as adults. Unless, of course, you confirmed their citizenship already before they turned 18.
Benefit 3: Your Golden Ticket to Healthcare
As a Pole and EU citizen, you get unlimited access to health care. If you are a public healthcare patient in the EU and require treatment that is not available in your home country, you may be able to use the Treatment Abroad Scheme to get treatment in another country across the EU, via the European Economic Area. You can also apply for the European Health Insurance Card, entitling you to receive medical care if you become ill or have an accident.
Benefit 4: More Connected to Your Heritage Than Ever
Discovering information about your Polish ancestors will reinforce your sense of belonging to a common European space and identity. It is important as your family’s cultural heritage is preserved and passed on to future generations.
Benefit 5: Get The Help You Need Anywhere in the World
EU citizens in a non-EU country where their own national state has no representation are entitled to protection by the diplomatic or consular authorities of any other EU country. During emergencies, EU member states must help EU citizens evacuate as if they were their own nationals. Protection also covers everyday situations, like a passport being stolen, a serious accident or illness.
