Traveling abroad can be very stressful sometimes. However, hope is on the horizon. In 1995, the Schengen area was launched. The Schengen area is a community of 26 different countries in Europe that allow people to move freely between their countries without having to pay for separate visas for each country.
More countries are expected to join whenever they meet all of the requirements. If you are a citizen of India and you would like to travel to Poland and to the Schengen area, you are able to do so by applying for a visa. Online applications are not currently supported by Polish embassies, however you can print out your application and bring it with you to the embassy.
We will provide you with your application and with the preparation guide to help you when you go to the embassy for your interview.
