Changes in the law – more foreigners entitled to obtain a Polish travel document for a foreigner

The changes introduced as of 1 January 2023 allow Polish travel documents to be issued to foreigners who have obtained a temporary residence permit in accordance with Article 186(1)(9) of the Act of on foreigners of 12 December 2013 . That applies to foreigners who, immediately prior to submitting an application for this permit, were residing on the territory of the Republic of Poland on the basis of a national visa issued for the purposes referred to in Article 60(1)(23) (on the basis of the so-called ‘humanitarian visa’) and possess citizenship defined in the provisions issued pursuant to Article 186(5).
