  4. This is a re-post of a question I think may have disappeared from your website.\r\n\r\n\r\nI am a US citizen living in the USA with my Polish born wife. We have been married and living in the USA for over 11 years.\r\n\r\nMy wife and I are considering a permanent move to Poland so we can start a business there.\r\n\r\nWhat is the fastest and most assured way for me to obtain Polish citizenship?\r\n\r\nMy present understanding is that there are two possible paths:\r\n\r\n1) Temporary Residence -> Permanent Residence -> Citizenship\r\n - Must be living in Poland for two years under a temporary residence permit before applying for permanent residence\r\n - Must be living in Poland for two additional years under the permanent residence permit before applying for citizenship\r\n - The combined process of temp res + perm res + citizenship application takes approximately 4 to 5 years.\r\n\r\n2) Petition the President of Poland Comments: 25

In particular to rely on certain EU regulations" based on the interests of the state or the applicant can directly contribute to the national planning naturalized citizenship". This for those who wish to step in place from the European Union citizenship, opened a small window, although only a few European countries with the actual examination and approval procedures, and each year are often only a few quota. He said if it is investment or donate some money, and give up their original citizenship can join the Poland nationality. 1log in to the Ministry of the interior recorded biological information (fingerprint, iris), fill in the application form. And then wait a few days 2. Enter the palace oath-taking ceremony. Then wait for a few days. 3. Receive proof of citizenship, and submit the Chinese passport. And then apply for the identity card and a passport. Wait for a few days. 4. Notice for an identity card and a passport. After a successful trial a week for the payment, no immigrant! I don't know is it right? Really, not only under the inquiries, please do me a favor to me. Comments: 0
