Polish American trying to plan a trip to Poland. Help with legalities on entering country.

Ok. So here is my intentions. I was in Poland a long time ago. Probably like 10 years ago. I'm 25 now and I have always wanted to go back to visit. My only problem is this. About 5 years ago I had a felony. It wasn't really a major one, at least not by our standards, just had 2 oz. of marijuana and where I live, anything over an ounce is a felony. So I keep hearing conflicting statements about whether or not you can go anywhere in the schengen zone with a felony on your record. I know places such as Canada and Australia are out of the question. Everyone always tells me to call the consulate or embassy but so far I haven't really gotten a straight answer from anybody. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'm not sure. I just have gotten so many conflicting answers about whether or not I would be able to visit Poland again with a felony on my record. I have no problem getting a passport. I heard that they normally don't check for smaller things if you are only trying to go on vacation for a little while as opposed to trying to gain residency or citizenship.

Haha. I hope so. I just heard a lot recently of people not getting into a lot of places. I mean, Canada won't even let you in there with a dui. not that I would want to go there anyway but still.

Unless Interpol or Europol is currently looking for you, meaning you have an outstanding warrant, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. Relax, toke up, and plan your trip at ease.

Not even any need to worry about Interpol. I used to work with a guy who was wanted by Interpol, we didn't know anything about it until he got hauled out of class by the police. Apparently he would have been fine if he hadn't applied for a residency permit.

Is that the British guy who murdered his wife just prior to teaching EFL in Poland?
