As of November 11, 2019, citizens of Poland are 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.

As of November 11, 2019, citizens of Poland are 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.

Poland is the first nation to be added to the program since 2014, when Chile joined. Visa waivers are generally limited to countries who are considered “close allies” of the U.S. — and that reciprocate in the form of their own visa policies. In a nation with a reputation for onerous entry requirements, it has been a powerful way to attract international leisure and business travelers to the U.S.

Under the Visa Waiver Program, citizens of Poland are able to apply online for authorization to travel to the United States through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization, or ESTA.
The ESTA authorization is valid for two years, or until the passport expires, whichever comes first. Citizens of Poland with valid B1/B2 visas should continue to use their visas for travel to the United States until expiration.

“The inclusion of Poland into the Visa Waiver Program is a testament to the special relationship that exists between our two countries, and the ongoing friendship and close cooperation on our joint security priorities,” the Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan said in a statement. “We look forward to continuing to work with the Polish government as we deepen our security cooperation as well as make travel easier for our citizens.”

U.S. Travel Association President Roger Dow welcomed the move in a statement, noting that Poland’s addition to the program is projected to generate an additional $702 million in travel spending in the first three years.

“We are grateful to the Trump administration for its recognition of the [visa waiver program] as a significant contributor to our security and our economy, and we are hopeful that other strong candidates for entry—such as Israel and Brazil—will advance toward membership as well,” Dow said.

At the moment, the U.S. inbound travel market can certainly use all the boost it can get. The latest results from the Travel Trends Index published on Tuesday by the U.S. Travel Association are grim: September saw a 0.4 percent decline in international arrivals to the U.S. compared to last year. This was the fifth month of negative growth in 2019, a trend which is projected to continue over the next six months.

The reason for the decline include the strong dollar and the trade war. Trump administration policies haven’t helped either. For example, there have been concerns that a proposal to add social media disclosure requirement to the ESTA application — which the Department of Homeland Security is still seeking public comment on — will deter the very kind of traveler the visa waiver program is meant to attract.

La extensión otorga flexibilidad a los viajeros del Programa de Exención de Visa que tienen dificultades para regresar a sus países debido a restricciones de viaje relacionadas con COVID-19, cancelaciones de vuelos o enfermedades. Los viajeros a quienes se les otorgue una salida satisfactoria tendrán 30 días adicionales para salir de los Estados Unidos después de que concluya su período legal de admisión.
International arrivals to the U.S. are slowing down, so the industry is right to worry that requiring travelers to disclose social media profiles as part of the online application for the visa waiver program could be viewed as unwelcoming.
