Being a member of European Union is very helpful for polish travelers. They are able to travel to the most of countries on Old Continent, without any passport or visa, they just need to takie ID with them.

If you are planning to visit your relatives in United States or Canada, you need to make sure you have any documents required, before you book your ticket, cause both of them need special kinds of visa. Also, you should know, what you can and cannot take on board with you.
Poland is one ow the few countries from European Union, that need to have a travel visa to go to the USA. And getting it is not the easiest thing to do. You are not just buying it on an airport, you need to visit special person in embassy. You may do it in Cracow or in Warsaw, but first make sure to register your visit. Then try to arrived at the exact time – if you will be to early, no one will let you in. You need to have a proper form with you, already filled, and your Identity card. When they will let you walk inside, you will have to wait in a queue for your turn. When clerk let you to step in, he will ask you a several questions. If you are just trying to go there for your holiday, it should be easy. Only former prisoners or people who use to be to the USA and return to late, have problem with getting visa. Now you are ready to buy your ticket. When you will be packing your backs, make sure you do not have any kind of food, in your carry on and even checked baggage. Cause USA policy about it is very restricted. And when you will return back to the Poland, you also cannot have any products of animals origin wit you – European Union regulations.
