Re-entry ban into the territory of the Republic of Poland – the reasons for the decision

Any foreigner staying on the basis of a Schengen visa or a national visa in the Republic of Poland is obliged to leave the country before the expiry of the visa or temporary residence permit. A foreigner is obliged to leave Poland within 30 days when he:

  • is not allowed to extend the visa
  • is not granted a permanent or temporary residence permit and a long-term EU resident permit
  • is not granted a refugee status
  • permission to reside for humanitarian reasons is to be canceled

If the above conditions are not followed, the procedure of issuing the re-entry ban for this foreigner is started.

Entry ban to Poland – for what period can it be issued?

  • for a period of 6 months to 5 years, depending on the circumstances of the case
  • for a period of 6 months to 3 years, when a foreigner stays in Poland without a document confirming the legality of stay, does not have sufficient means to finance the stay, has exceeded the permissible period of stay in the Schengen area or the purpose of the visit is not consistent with the initially mentioned
  • from 1 to 3 years, when a foreigner works without the required work permit
  • up to 5 years, when he was sentenced to imprisonment or pose a threat to the state and public order

Who can apply for the cancellation of the re-entry ban?

Canceling the entry ban to Poland can be made at a foreigner’s request  if he:

  • has fulfilled the obligation to leave the territory of the Republic of Poland on the indicated date
  • has fulfilled the conditions of re-applying for a legal stay in Poland and the EU
