The EU is - possibly - going to remove US citizens visa free access to Europe after the US failed

By the way, Poland should introduce visas for US citizens as it is only proper.

Its been over a year since you posted this nonsense and still nothing has happened? LOL

Go ahead put visas on us and see how many Americans stopping coming to an already tanking European tourism industry.

I highly doubt the Polish Government would even want a Visa waiver program because most of the country would pack up and leave.

Dude the Polish gov doesn't care ....they are bringing Indians, Ukrainians, Vietnamize and lastly Philippinos (how do you spell it?) into the country. So they couldn't care less who is leaving and who is staying....

The only reason they do not introduce visas for the US citizens is because they are bi..s who suck at they job. The EUI would give them some grief if they would do that. USA requires visas from the Polish citizens visiting that country. The only proper way to react to that by any independent self-respecting government would be to reciprocate.

I doubt that those Americans that bother to visit Poland would be deterred much by the visas. It is no issue.

Americans don't need Polish visas. We just go to Berlin and we are in. Just like I did last year.

sure, yawn.....tell me more YAWN!

Right now that is impractical, Americans do not need visa to visit Poland. I say there should be, so if someone would do what enter Poland without it there would be consequences.

I thought Poland was as the last bastion of hope in Europe against the PC lunacy? Oh, Noooooo!

It surely cant be as bad as Paris, Stockholm or the Londonistan take over, but surely is alarming.

Dont feel bad, things arent all that great in the USA right now. We have a whole state in disarray "California" what a mess!

Na, these welfare queens can make more money sitting at home watching TV all day eating Cheetos, rather than going to Poland and actually having to work.

Its fair, I dont really care. Im not planning on sneaking in anyway:)

Stick to the topic only, please

Here is a link to an article on the Straż Graniczna website which clearly states that America citizens can enter Poland for any 90 day period and reset the 90 day timer by simply crossing the border and coming back: strazgraniczna.pl/pl/cudzoziemcy/najczesciej-zadawane-py/5012,15-Jestem-obywatelem-Stanow-Zjednoczonych-Ameryki-USA-jak-mam-obliczyc-dlugosc-d.html

I have a printed copy of this webpage with me whenever I cross any Polish border and I suggest that other Americans in Poland do the same. The border guards aren't going to ignore the rules written on their own website.

However, that only applies if you cross a non-Schengen border. If you're more than 90 days in Schengen, you can't visit other Schengen countries.

Yes you are right, I was referring to non-Schengen borders. But of course the Schengen borders do not have passport control (with a few exceptions now) so the risk of being caught overstaying is close to zero.

Not quite. For instance, buses get stopped quite regularly (especially to/from Prague and Berlin), and I've been stopped quite a few times for random controls. The most interesting one was being stopped by Czech border guards in Karkonosze - they were specifically controlling people on the tourist border crossings in the mountains.

It can also be an issue if you get stopped for something like jaywalking abroad - if they check your passport and see that you've overstayed, it can be instant detention/deportation.

Where were the random controls?

My passport has over 60 stamps in it now and it often takes the border guards several minutes just to locate the most recent stamp, let alone calculate the number of days between entries and exits. Most of them don't bother and pickup their stamp as soon as they see I have an American passport. But every now and then I'll encounter a border guard who wishes to be thorough.

Where were the random controls?

From memory, all by car unless mentioned otherwise

Cesky Tesin (control leaving CZ)
Cieszyn (control entering CZ on foot at the crossing next to the castle)
Frankfurt (Oder) (entering DE, several times)
Świecko (entering PL)
Ludwigsdorf (entering DE)
Zgorzelec (entering PL on foot at Most JPII)
Kudowa-Zdrój (entering PL)
Mala Cermna (entering CZ)
Kostrzyn nad Odrą (leaving PL)
Lucni Bouda (entering/leaving CZ in Karkonosze - they moved on to the Dom Slaski afterwards)
Lysa Polana (entering SK)

And that's just the controls on the Polish borders. I've seen quite a lot of controls on other Schengen borders, including the Austrian controls at Nickelsdorf last summer where every travel document was visually checked and non-EU citizens were stopped.

jaywalking abroad

Overstated Delph. In communist days ( 1988) I hiked a few times between Wisla and Jablunkow in the Beskidy in the then Czechoslovakia on a beer bender. I was never stopped.

Lysa Polana (entering SK)

That too was an easy workaround:) :) Got the photographic proof somewhere. Happy (alcoholic) memories of summer in Zdiar and those places. Met a gentleman bear too.

I also noticed the checkpoint at Kostrzyn nad Odrą. I simply turned around and used a different bridge to cross. The Copenhagen-Malmo border also had an extra control when I was there last year. I've never noticed any at airports however, have you?

Over by Katarzynka? I was given some very strange looks there by locals a few years ago...

Katarzynka?

Don't know that place Delph - where is it?
PS: Sorry - thought we were discussing the bad old days... my bad.

It's some awful village south of Wisła, though I'm guessing in Commie times, there wasn't much there at all.

please back on topic
