Poles will be able to travel to the US visa free from November 11, the Polish press has reported.
Speaking in a joint press conference with US Ambassador to Poland Georgette Mosbacher, Polish President Andrzej Duda said that Poland’s accession to the United States Visa Waiver Programme was a major step and praised Donald Trump, his US counterpart, for taking the decision to facilitate visa-free travel.
Poland was granted accession to the US visa-free travel scheme after its visa refusal rate to the US dropped below three per cent (to 2.8 per cent) in September.
Just three European Union countries now remain outside of the visa waiver programme: Bulgaria, Croatia and Romania.
