Any country in Europe can be considered an excellent destination for tourism. However, in the list of these countries, there are many factors that put Poland in the forefront both for our travelers and for world tourism. In addition to the capital Warsaw, Krakow, Poznan, Gdańsk and many other cities, Poland's unique, specific architecture, natural beauty, culture and art are very successful in attracting tourists. In addition, business trips from different countries of the world are often organized to Poland. If you want to travel to Poland and want to do business as well as travel and explore this country, you can apply for a Polish business visa. You can read more about the documents you will need when applying for a business visa, the letter of invitation and the general visa procedure in this article.

Poland visa types

Since Poland is among the Schengen countries, you can realize your planned short-term trip to this country by obtaining a Polish Schengen visa. The reasons for applying for this type of visa can be tourism, visiting family or friends, business trip, medical examination or treatment, short-term study, exchange programs and many other non-permanent nuances. Those who wish to study in Poland for a long-term period of more than 90 days (such as bachelor's, master's, doctoral studies, etc.) or to work permanently in an institution located in Poland can also apply for a Polish national visa if they have official invitations or acceptance letters from those educational and work institutions.

You apply for the "business visa" type of the Polish Schengen visa to realize your short-term business trip. Note that a short-term business visa does not give you the right to work permanently in Poland, this visa is issued for your own business trip.

Poland Schengen Visa

shengen visa

As in all Schengen countries, there are single-entry and multiple-entry types of the Polish Schengen visa. At the same time, you can also apply for long-term visas, i.e. for three months, six months, one year, two years or five years. You can enter any Schengen country after obtaining a Polish visa. However, in any case, we definitely recommend that you make your first entry into the Schengen area from the country where you received your visa, i.e. from Poland. Otherwise, if you try to enter the Schengen area with a Polish visa from another country (especially from Western European countries), the border service of that country may turn you back and not allow you to enter the country, unless you mention it during your visa application. This experience has been experienced in some cases and therefore we advise you to avoid this risk.

If you are applying for a Polish Schengen visa, you must indicate the maximum number of days you will stay in Poland during your trip.

If you do not have the original of the invitation letter, you can submit a scanned version to the embassy in printed form. The invitation letter must have the signature and seal of the institution that invited you. Also, on the invitation letter, the name of the invited person, that is, your name, and additionally, if possible, your date of birth, passport number, and travel dates must be mentioned. If your place of stay is organized by the institution that invited you, in this case, you may not include a hotel reservation in your documents if the address of your stay is mentioned in the invitation letter sent to you.

After your documents have been accepted, in any case, during your visa procedure, you may receive a call from the embassy and you may be asked to submit new documents. In some cases, it has been seen that during the visa procedure, the Polish embassy requires the applicants to purchase the hotels they have booked and submit documents confirming this to the embassy.

The amount in your bank account is based on the travel dates you have indicated, i.e. the length of your stay in Schengen, the price of the flight tickets and hotels you have booked, etc. varies depending. In general, it is recommended that you have at least 2,000-4,000 AZN in your bank account for a one-week trip (equivalent to Euro or US dollars). This amount should fully cover your travel plan. When calculating the amount, you can add the price of your ticket and hotel reservations to the average daily cost of 60-70 euros for each day you indicate that you will be staying in the Schengen area and assume a little higher than the figure you received.

If your expenses are covered by the institution that invited you, this must be mentioned in the invitation letter. In this case, you may not provide a statement from your bank account, but in any case it is advisable to show a small amount in your account in your name.

If you are an entrepreneur, you can submit the documents that will replace the certificate from the workplace (a copy of the TIN, a certificate issued by the Ministry of Taxes about your turnover, an extract from the register of your company) to the embassy. If you are not working, studying or in any case sponsoring another person to cover the costs of your trip, in this case a copy of that person's identity card, proof of employment (if self-employed, the documents listed above), proof of bank account and statement (this bank account can be both in your name and in the name of the sponsor), if you have a family bond, a document confirming this (for example, if it is a parent, your own birth certificate, if it is a brother or sister, both of your birth certificates, etc.) and a paper about sponsorship to the embassy must be submitted. If the applicant is under 18 years of age, in this case, if he is traveling alone, a copy of the permission document to leave the country from both parents or, if he is traveling with one of the parents, must also be submitted during the visa application.

It should be noted that even if you have submitted documents such as a certificate of circulation from the Ministry of Taxes, an extract from the register of your company or a sponsorship letter, a permission letter, you must have each of these documents translated and approved by a notary in English. A copy of the TIN that you will submit is sufficient.

Visa procedure


The application for the Polsha visa is made to the Embassy of Polsha in Azerbaijan. The visa is issued by the consul in the presence of the consul of the country.

Appointments for a Polish visa are different from other Schengen countries. So, to make an appointment for a visa application, first of all, a suitable appointment date is selected in the consulate's system, and after this date is selected, the online application form is opened. That application form must be completed within 60 minutes, otherwise the appointment will be lost. Therefore, all the necessary information should be available before the appointment so that filling out the application form does not take long. After completing and confirming the application form, the scheduled date and the automatically scheduled appointment time appear on the last page. That is, the applicant can choose a suitable day from among the possible dates for the visa appointment, but the time will be automatically given by the system. In some cases, it is not possible to select a date for the appointment in the system. This means that there are currently no available appointment times. In such a case, it is necessary to wait for free space in the system. These places are systematically opened 3 times a month, on the 10th, 20th, and 30th of every month (if these dates fall on non-working days, they can be opened a day earlier or a day later, it is advisable to check with the embassy in advance).

Advance appointment is required, otherwise documents will not be accepted. The visa application can be made no earlier than 6 months before the date of the trip. Personal attendance is mandatory when submitting documents, but children under 12 years of age do not need to attend the visa appointment.

Note: In some cases, especially during business trips, it may be possible to schedule an appointment earlier than the time indicated in the system. For this, the company in Poland should write an email or contact the Polish embassy in Baku.

The Schengen visa procedure may take 7-10 days from the date of application.

The visa fee is 35 euros and can only be paid in cash and in euros when presenting the documents.

Poland Schengen Visa Probability

As when applying for a visa at the embassy of any country, your chance of getting a visa in Poland depends on the state of your profile. Your workplace and position should be normal, your monthly income should be in the standard salary range (in experience, visas have been issued to people with a monthly income of 300-500 AZN, there have been many cases), you should show enough money in your bank account to cover your entire trip, the nuances that bind you to the country (having property in your name) , the presence of your family and children) and your travel history are factors that increase your chances of getting a Poland Schengen visa. Our experience shows that the Polish embassy is one of the embassies that repeatedly issued the first Schengen visa to people who did not have a Schengen visa before. When applying for a business visa, the official letter of invitation you will present can increase your chances of getting a visa. If the purpose and reason for the trip stated in your invitation letter is related to your field of work or if you have made similar business trips before, these nuances will have a positive impact on your profile.
