The number of advantages and opportunities that Polish citizenship can give attracts more and more foreign citizens every year. At the moment the desire to become the owner of Polish citizenship is becoming popular not only among immigrants living in Poland as previously, but also by US, UK and Canada citizens. However, not everyone knows that it is possible to obtain Polish citizenship even without living in Poland and without knowing the Polish language.
If you are interested in this opportunity, you should definitely know what “Polish Citizenship by Ancestry” means!
Polish citizenship by ancestry means that every foreign citizen who can document their Polish heritage and fulfill certain eligibility criteria set by the Polish government can acquire Polish citizenship just by application for its confirmation.
So, if one of your parents, grandparents, or great-grandparents were born in the region used to be Poland and fulfills the requirements of the Ancestry program then you have the right to confirm your Polish citizenship.
What is more, you don’t even need to reside in Poland and prove the knowledge of polish language, culture and history. Furthermore, you don’t have to renounce your current citizenship, as Poland accepts dual citizenship without any exceptions and restrictions.
