Visas & Passports


We inform you that the Luxembourg authorities are not competent in the event of delays in the Polish administrative procedure that may arise in their decision-making process and therefore cannot offset these delays by issuing short-stay visas. Furthermore, we do not issue visas or travel documents that can be considered as a substitute for the absence of a Polish residence permit. Please contact the Polish authorities if you need to leave the country.

A short-term Schengen visa may be issued for humanitarian reasons.
