    1. Dear Kenneth,

      Thank you for the question.

      It’s possible but it’s unlikely you can get Polish citizenship through descent. However, you can consider gaining Polish citizenship through the presidential grant route, as the chances may be higher.

  1. 1) My father was a polish citizen and left during the WW2. If I get citizenship and a polish passport can my spouse get a polish passport?
    2)If my children get polish passports are there any downsides or responsibilities or commitments they need to know about?

    1. Dear Avril,

      Thank you for the questions.

      1) Unfortunately not, Poland does not offer citizenship through marriage. But your spouse would have residential and working rights in the EU as long as you remain married.

      2) Polish citizenship comes with many rights but also obligations. You are not required to live in Poland, vote, pay taxes or serve in the Polish army for example. Poland allows dual citizenship but does not recognise so whilst in Poland, you are not considered another country’s citizen, only Polish.

    1. Dear Oded,

      Thank you for the question.

      Not quite. It means that you have rights and obligations that a citizen has vis a vis the European Union citizenship. In other words, to be an EU citizen, you need to be a citizen of a member state. If you are a Polish citizen, you can move freely across the EU and if you want to reside in one of the member states, you need to register there as a resident, in line with local requirements.

  2. My father is from Germany and left at the age of 12 with his parents due to the Nazi..
    My grandparents on my mother’s side were from Poland. How can I get my EU for Germany or Poland. My mother has passed away. I do have her birth certificate from Detroit, Michigan. how can I get my Germany Passport if my father was born in Germany?

    1. Dear Bruna,

      It’s possible that you can get Czech citizenship. However, we’ll need more information about your family to see if you’re a strong candidate to getting Czech citizenship.

      Please email our friendly team at Polaron with more information about your great grandfather: citizenship@polaron.com.au

  3. Hi, my fathers grandfather was born in Podkarpackie, Poland in 1889. Would I qualify for Polish Citizenship? I am a successful young entrepreneur with a lot of achievements in my young age here in the USA.

    1. Dear Glen,

      Thank you for the question.

      It’d depend on when your fathers grandfather left Poland. If your fathers grandfather left Poland before 1918, you most likely do not qualify for Polish citizenship through descent. In which case, you’d need to apply for Polish citizenship through grant.

      Please contact our friendly team at Polaron to look into your chances of getting Polish citizenship through descent, or grant: citizenship@polaron.com.au

      Yours truly,
      Professor Adamski
