    The Consular Section of the Embassy of Republic of Poland in Rome kindly informs that in order to submit a passport application it is necessary to book firstly an appointment via e-Konsulat system: www.e-konsulat.gov.pl.

     

    Passport document (passport, temporary passport) is an official document entitling the holder to cross the border and stay abroad and certifying Polish citizenship, as well as the identity of the person.

     

    Polish passports issued from 28th August 2006 on, contain biometric data i.e.: the image of the face, while passports issued after the 29th June 2009 additionally contain biometric data in the form of fingerprints (except for minors under 12 years old).

     

    A temporary passport does not include biometric data.

     

    Due to the fact that passports are printed in Poland, the waiting period for a document is about 6 weeks.

     

    There is also a possibility of an additional application for a temporary passport while waiting for the biometric one to be issued.

     

    An application for a passport is to be submitted in person.

     

    The Consular Section of the Embassy of Republic of Poland in Rome kindly informs that starting from 26th June 2012 all the registrations of children in parents’ passports are no more valid.
