Getting a Schengen Visa for Poland is a wonderful option for citizens of Liberia. This specific type of visa is great if you plan to travel throughout Europe instead of vacationing only in Poland. That means you will arrive in Poland and then can travel to most major European countries within the Schengen region and can make the most out of your trip.
Let’s chat about what you need to get started for the application process and tips to consider for your travel arrangements to Europe.
Information and Application Requirements for the Poland Schengen Visa
International Student Visa Information for Poland Schengen Region
You will need to provide proof of enrollment in the Polish university, proof of financial sustenance showing you can survive while attending university in Poland, as well as a No Objection Letter/Certificate from your university advisor or other qualified school officials.
The No Objection Letter/Certificate is a document provided by the Polish university stating that you have reason to leave Poland and the Schengen region after you finish your studies. Sometimes, this letter/certificate is optional, but it is a good idea to have it with you when traveling to Poland for school, just in case.
Costs of a Poland Schengen Visa
In most cases, children who are 0-5 years old can get a free visa as long as the guardian provides the correct information.
Children older than five years old and all adults that apply for a visa will need to pay a visa fee. The visa cost can range from $40 USD to $90 USD (or 40 € to 80 €). Visa fees are subject to change per embassy/consulate and also are subject to change based on currency exchange rates.
