Polish Visa questions - will they let me back into the country?

I am an american and have been living in Poland since April 2011 (5 months). I have been applying for my visa in poland. I have not completed all the requirements and will surely be denied on the 12th of september when they make the final decision. I am leaving for the states on the 14th of september and will try to return in one month-- will they let me back into the country?? I am flying from USA to London to Poland, which leg of the trip would they stop me on if they arent going to let me back into Poland. Will I have any problems leaving the country on the 14th? What happens if i try to return and they do not let me in? After you are denied a visa is there any way to appeal?

I know this is alot of questions but I am trying to figure out, so thank you for your time and your responses.

Delph I'm surprised you don't have the answers to this topic. Your supposed to be the big expert on Poland and these matters.

any way to appeal?

Why are you so sure that your application will be rejected?

Technically you should be denied entry to Poland (although you'll be fine in London no matter what) but in practice you have a fairly good chance of being let in. However you will be here illegally and might have problems when leaving Poland.

Depending on which state you are from, you might want to consider changing your name (by adding a middle name) and then getting a new passport in your new name. That used to work but I get the feeling that the loophole has now been closed.

As for appealing, write back to the foreigners office notifying them that you wish to appeal their decision and asking them for their opinion on the form in which that appeal should be made (interpretation varies from office to office, so it's best to get them to tell you exactly what they want).

How surprising to see you yet again failing to post anything of any use to anybody and instead attempting to attack somebody who kicks your arse each and every time you try to go up against him.

Thanks for your response. I am sure I will be denied because I did not turn all the necessary paperwork in. When I leave on the 14th, is it likely that security will check my passport and realized I have overstayed? I have read elsewhere that they may permit me from coming back to Poland until my appeal is complete. Thanks!

Strange: they normally won't even accept for consideration applications which are incomplete.

When I leave on the 14th, is it likely that security will check my passport and realized I have overstayed?

You got any evidence your application was submitted and that the decision will be issued on 12 September? You could probably get away with showing the border guard that documentation and telling them that the letter hasn't arrived yet (credible on 14 September).

I have read elsewhere that they may permit me from coming back to Poland until my appeal is complete.

Not sure about that one. Sorry.

If you do get a positive decision, you most probably won't be able to get the actual card before you leave Poland (there is usually a gap of up to a couple of weeks between getting the decision and getting the actual card).

If you have not completed all requirements...why do you expect to be let in again? Or to be let out?
