Visa-free travel for Poles underlines ‘special relationship’ with US: official

The inclusion of Poland into America’s Visa Waiver Program reflects the “special relationship” between the two countries, a senior US official has said.

From November 11, Poles will be able to apply to travel to the United States for tourism or business purposes for up to 90 days without obtaining a visa.

The long-awaited move was announced by Polish President Andrzej Duda on Wednesday.

America’s Acting Secretary of Homeland Security, Kevin K. McAleenan, said in a statement: “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.”

He added: “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.”

Poland, a staunch ally of the United states, had long been pressing Washington to lift visas, which are seen by many Poles as a humiliating encumbrance.

Poland’s ruling conservatives are keen to strengthen their country’s military and business ties with the United States.
