The Schengen visa is offered for those traveling to Poland and allows its holders to travel to several other countries as well. The Schengen zone is a collection of countries in Europe that have officially agreed to no longer enforce their internal borders to allow for more interconnected mobility between neighboring countries.
For citizens of Azerbaijan, the Poland (Schengen) visa is accepted as a legitimate document and will allow its holders to freely move across the countries within the Schengen zone. The Poland (Schengen) visa is not accepted as an online submission. In order to submit your application, you will need to print it out and bring it with you to your nearest embassy. Before you arrive at the embassy, make sure that you set up an appointment.
