How can I find out if my parents still hold their Polish Citizenship?

Hello PolishForumers!
How can I find out if my father still holds his Polish Citizenship (received at birth) and/or Polish Passport without his direct communication? Is it wise to write on your Polish Citizenship Application that this is in fact unknown? Originally I assumed that when my father arrived in Australia in the late 1980s he received his Australian Citizenship and therefore lost his Polish Citizenship due to Polish law at that time. I would hate to write something on my Polish Citizenship Application that isn't right regarding my father's Polish Citizenship as they would be able to find this out from their records.

Hello Monski, why not join us?

Polish citizenship can be confirmed as follows - you must submit appropriate application to Polish Consulate. The application can be downloaded here:
msw.gov.pl/download/1/15323/094133_KW_321019_DOIR_plik4.pdf

In addition, documents proving the data and information contained in the application should be attached - for example long form Birth Certificate, Marriage Certificate, Certificate of current Citizenship - but for the details ask the embassy, different countries - slightly different procedures.

I hope this helped.

Hi Looker, all joined now ;)
Thanks for the application but I already have filled this out. All I really need now is to find out if my father still holds his Polish Citizenship which I'm unable to directly find out from him. Is there a way for me to find this out so I can complete my Polish Citizenship Application? Do you think its unwise to write that these details about my father are unknown on my application (in the father's memoir part)?

Hi Looker, all joined now ;)

Welcome :)

To be sure about your father's Polish citizenship the application must be filled and submitted to the embassy. It is also crucial for your efforts to obtain Polish citizenship.

The form is very detailed, but the more meaningful informations will be noted the better for the whole case. Another issue that it must be filled in Polish.

Do you think its unwise to write that these details about my father are unknown on my application (in the father's memoir part)?

Everything you put on this document must be true, if you are not certain about something it may be better just write unknown with (if possible) a short note.

Good luck!
