The presidential grant route: Another way to reclaim your Polish citizenship

About this event

Have you been told that you are not eligible for Polish citizenship by descent?

Good news! You may be able to receive your Polish citizenship through an application to the president of the Republic of Poland. The president in his constitutional power may grant Polish citizenship to any foreigner and his authority in this regard is unlimited and final.

Melissa Welch, from the United States, is currently reclaiming her Polish citizenship through the presidential grant route. In this online discussion on Wednesday 5th August, Melissa will tell us why she has chosen another way to pursue her Polish citizenship and how this journey has impacted her identity.
