If you will be undertaking a recognised course of study at a Polish education institution, getting a student visa for Poland is normally a straightforward process. You will need to present the required documentation and application forms after correctly completing the information required.
Students from EU/EEA countries
In order to enter Poland to start a course of study, it is not necessary for an EU/EEA student to get a visa prior to arrival. However, when you have arrived in Poland, you do need to apply for a temporary study visa at the local Voivod’s office.
Students from non EU countries
Before travelling to Poland, students from outside of the EU should apply for a student visa at the Polish consulate in their current country of residence. Students who have a valid visa and want to reapply for its extension have to do so at least 45 days before the current visa expires.
