How to acquire Polish citizenship through marriage as an American? More info in the post.

I am an American living in America and married to a dual citizen Polish/American.
We have been married for 10 years in the USA and married for 3 years documented in Poland.
I am looking to get a dual citizenship through marriage from Poland.

From Migrant.info.pl:

A foreigner entering into a marriage with a Polish citizen does not automatically obtain Polish citizenship.

A foreigner who resides permanently in Poland (what is an uninterrupted stay?->) for at least 2 years on the basis of a permanent residence permit -> or a long-term EU resident permit -> and who remains married for at least 3 years to a person holding Polish citizenship may apply for recognition as a Polish citizen.

1. I am confused on the uninterrupted stay. Some other websites say that I have to stay there over a 10 year cycle?

2. What is the most efficient way to stay in Poland to get this? Minimum days and for how long?

3. What do I need to do to maintain the citizenship?

4. If I get the Polish citizenship, do I also get the EU Visa?

Thank you in advance!

You need to pass the B1 exam in Polish and meet the other requirements, such as at least 2 years of residency on a permanent residence/long term EU permit while being married for 3.

1. Old information. In your case, it's as above.

3. Nothing.

4. EU citizens can live and work elsewhere in the EEA freely.

Delphiandomine,

Thank you for the information!

Do I need to stay in the country of Poland for a certain amount of time?

Can someone explain me please what does this article mean? "a foreigner residing continuously on the Polish territory for at least three years on the basis of a permanent residence permit". I lived in Poland more than 4 years (without interruption) with permanent residence card then I moved abroad for one year. Can i obtain Polish citizenship?

Simply no? I've resided in Poland continuously 4 years with permanent residence . I have been living abroad for one year but im planning to work in Poland again. Anyway, According to this article I fulfil the condition but you say no. See here ''Have lived without interruptions for at least 3 years in Poland on the basis of a permanent residence permit or a long-term EU-resident permit and have a stable source of income and are entitled to the occupied dwelling;''.

but you say no.

Some forum members are only able to say no. That poster called ironside is one of them. You should be careful with those wolves in sheep clothing.

''Have lived without interruptions for at least 3 years in Poland

Yes, exactly. Mind the Present Perfect Tense used here - do you know English grammar? In your quoted sentence this tense means that an action has taken place until now - so, the past must be connected with the present.

Your being away from Poland for one year broke that connection. You need to start your 3 years stay in Poland anew.

I am really sorry.

PS. You have been helped by an kind Polish teacher.

I doubt that,as the permanent residence card is the basis for uninterrupted stay,I am not sure(I am pretty sure I was in almost same situation,I forgot) but he/she can check with an immigration attorney and not go for any consultancy services for proper advice.

I am afraid the Polish wording is as clear as the English translation: cudzoziemca przebywajÄ…cego nieprzerwanie na terytorium Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej co najmniej od 3 lat. For 3 years means until now.

Although in my understanding you're right about the residency requirement. IIRC there's a certain number or days you can be outside of the country within a year and not stop the clock but a year.... back at zero.

Let me draw your attention to the word - nieprzerwanie - intermittently.

nieprzerwanie - intermittently.

eh? You teach English? must be a lie /nieprzerwanie - continuously!

Simply no?

What else is there are to know? It is not a buffet you can pick and choose. Most countries have similar legislation, You should apply for citizenship then and there. Right now you need to do it all over again. Anyway check it up on a gov page rather then ask for an advice on a random, internet forum.

It must be terrible going through life with no sense of humor..... do you ever laugh? And I don't mean laughing at some old lady falling down and breaking her hip I mean normal human laughter.... is that a thing for you?

The OP did it, quoting the gov site: ''Have lived without interruptions for at least 3 years in Poland on the basis. There was a problem with its interpretation.

life with no sense of humor...

What humor? Was it funny? you and your humor lol!

The OP did it, quoting the gov site:

No, I mean he should check if he can leave for a year and came back as if nothing had happened. I believe he can find such info there...

he should check if he can leave for a year and came back

EXACTLY,he can be leaving for medical reasons or sent by an Polish company for work overseas.If he can prove that,there is a clause in the law.

Was it funny?

Of course.

No, I mean he should check if he can leave for a year

So, you didn`t manage to get it across to us. Try to use some decent English, not that dirty slang from the gutters in the forbidden district.

I believe he can find such info there...

No, one can`t. I checked it and there is nothing about it. Each site says: 3 years continuingly.

EXACTLY,he can be leaving for medical reasons or sent by an Polish company for work overseas

I agree with being sent abroad by a Polish company - one is excused. But medical problems are sb`s private matter and I don`t think law closes an eye here.
