Polish visa centres open in New Delhi and Mumbai


VFS Global, a leading outsourcing and technology services company serving governments and diplomatic missions worldwide, has launched Polish visa services in New Delhi and Mumbai. Prior to this, travellers had to visit the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in New Delhi or the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Mumbai to apply for their visas. Other Indian cities where VFS Global will commence Polish visa services are Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Bhopal, Chandigarh, Chennai, Hyderabad, Jaipur and Kolkata.

As a destination, the Republic of Poland has been witnessing a rapid increase in tourist and business arrivals from India over the years, with 2018 having a footfall of over 16,000 from the market. Elaborating on this, Adam Burakowski, ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary of the Republic of Poland to India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Maldives and Afghanistan said:

“Poland is becoming more and more attractive for Indians, with its rich business opportunities, various touristic destinations and excellent universities. The number of visa applicants is growing fast. “Also the opening of the direct flight between Warsaw and New Delhi is a major step. We look to the cooperation with VFS Global with high hopes. We would like to make the visa application process easier and more accessible for people.”
