Anna Terlecka, partner of our Firm, specialises in cases concerning obtainment/confirmation of Polish citizenship.
Obtain Polish citizenship by deriving it from your ancestors
The Polish legal system is based on the principle of blood (ius sanguinis). This principle states that a child acquires Polish citizenship by operation of law by being born of parents, at least one of whom is a Polish citizen. According to this principle, a minor - regardless of place of birth - born to persons or a person with Polish citizenship also acquires Polish citizenship.
