Business visa to Poland and its benefits

Since May 2004, the Republic of Poland has been a member of the Schengen Agreement; so when you apply for a Polish visa, you can rely on free movement within the participant countries. Today, it is an essential bonus both for foreign students, ordinary tourists and businessmen. Business visa to Poland is an ideal option for business travelers who plan to establish a new business or develop an existing one in Europe. It shall be issued on the basis of one's own business activities in Poland or in case of existing business cooperation with the Polish side. Polish business visa can be either Schengen (up to 90 days duration) or national (over 90 days); short-term (single entry) or long-term (multi-visit). There are also cases when a foreigner with a positive visa history has an opportunity to obtain a Schengen business visa for a period from two to five years, which provides for staying in Poland and the Schengen area up to 90 days every six months.

An important detail should be noted regarding the business Schengen visa to Poland: an extract from the register of Polish enterprises is sufficient for it to be issued.

Depending on the type and duration, prices of business visa to Poland range from 100 to 400 euros and this price does not include insurance costs, as well as visa and consular fees, which shall be paid separately. In most cases, the intermediaries who act as visa service providers offer their customers work permits and visa invitations, which may affect your visa history in a rather dubious way and result in deportation in the future.
