DHS issues final rule designating Poland as a Visa Waiver Program country. Starting November 11, 2019, citizens and nationals of Poland will be able to apply to travel to the United States for tourism or business purposes for up to 90 days without obtaining a U.S. visa. This final rule was signed by Acting Secretary McAleenan.
The Visa Waiver Program (VWP), created in 1986, and administered by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in consultation with the State Department, permits citizens of 38 countries to travel to the United States for business or tourism for stays of up to 90 days without a visa. The eligibility requirements for a country’s designation in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) are defined in INA § 217 as amended by the Secure Travel and Counterterrorism Partnership Act of 2007. Poland was not previously designated as meeting the eligibility requirements of the Visa Waiver Program.
