No availability to apply for Poland's National Visa. Indian national married to Polish.

I am an Indian national married to Polish since 2012. We are travelling to Poland for 6 months (sept - march) as my wife is pregnant and we decided to give birth to the baby in Poland where she can be around her family and loved ones.

We booked out tickets for September 1st to Poland and got the invitation from her family just now.

So, I went to the Mumbai Polish consulate website to apply for the national visa & to my surprise it gives an error that there are no dates available till aug31 to apply! I immediately rushed to the Delhi consulate page which says there are no dates till September 29!!

This suddenly got us into a tense situation as we have made all the arrangement.

I quickly applied for Schenghen visa for 90 days and started my crazy google search in Polish! Came across a Polish official document saying that I can apply for "zezwolenie na pobyt czasowy" ( temporarily residency permit) while in Poland, pay a fee of 340 zl which basically can extend my stay for 6 months.

I would like to know if someone on this forum has gone through this procedure and if there is something I can do to get national visa instead of Schenghen visa when I go for the interview?

In some missions the waiting time for an appointment occasionally exceeds 3 months (for example Abu Dhabi).

No, you cannot change the type of visa agreed in the appointment schedule. They are very strict about that. Don't even open this subject with them :)

If your marriage is registered in Poland and you have a Polish marriage certificate then you do not need an invitation to apply for the visa, and your application would be free of charge. If your marriage is not yet registered in Poland, then you should register it as soon as possible.

Don't worry about the procedure for the temporary residence permit. Once you arrive in Poland, call and make an appointment, and while you wait for that, prepare the needed documents (I won't go into the documents right now - many websites with that info in English and many more in Polish). After applying and while waiting for decision on your application and subsequently for your residence card, your stay in Poland is considered legal.

You can apply for 6 months for now (you may apply up to 3 years, but don't ask for longer than what you intend to use, because that can cause problems if you apply again in the future). Remember you can always apply for an extension if necessary.

Can I apply a visa to poland

Subject has been discussed here before so search existing threads.

In short, yes you can apply for Schengen visa type D, tourist visa, multiple entry, 2 years validity, free of cost, once your marriage has been registered in Poland and Polish marriage certificate has been issued. This visa does NOT entitle you to work (regardless of paid or unpaid work).

Once you arrive in Poland, you need to apply for a temporary residence permit on the basis of being the spouse of a Polish citizen. That particular type of residence permit (once issued) allows you to work in Poland without getting an additional, separate work permit.

There are salaries for spouses of Polish Nationals,
only the non EU spouses need work permit.

non EU spouses need work permit.

They don't need them if they have residence permits of spouses of Polish citizens.

There's nothing you can do except wait until a slot opens up and book it as soon as it does. Whatever you do, never give any money to any "agents" or "consultants" who say they can help you get an earlier slot, or anyone who claims they know somebody at the consulate. They are scam artists and will only steal your money.

Hi !!

Is there any specific day and time on which appointment for National visa for Students can be made at Polish Consulate-General of Mumbai in India.

I am waiting and trying to book an appointment since a month and could not figure out on which day and time the slots open.
8 Dec 2017 #17
I also faced same problem. If the appointment dates are not available then write an email to Consul General ( and request appointment date for student visa. I got appointment for student visa requesting through email only. I submitted my application on 6th December.

Cam someone explain to me, how anyone on this Polish Forum can in any way speed up the officials in the Embassies. If they told you to wait, then that is what you do. There is absolutely nothing that anyone from this forum can do to speed things up. Things take as long as they take.

All details of opening hours, appointments are on their websites.

Can you explain to me how this is such a problem for you? You did the same in the other thread.

They wouldn't look for a solution if they aren't in emergency. There are many people who apply visa for the first time, so its normal they seek help from groups or forums like this.

So either help or just don't, Simple! You don't need to rude.

I waited 4 months to get appointment date for my student visa. There were no appointment dates available for student visa and I emailed to the consulate several times and didn't get any reply. Once I told them If don't join for my PhD course I would loose my fellowship, i got a reply from them. I submitted my application on 6th December and my visa got approved in 3 days
