Nomination of Poland for Entry into the Visa Waiver Program

Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding the Nomination of Poland for Entry into the Visa Waiver Program

Today, President Donald J. Trump is announcing that the Department of State has formally nominated Poland for entry into the Visa Waiver Program. This is an important step in continuing to increase economic, security, cultural, and people-to-people connections between our two nations. Now that Poland has been nominated, the Department of Homeland Security will take necessary action, as soon as possible, to assess Poland’s entry into the program. If Poland is designated as a Visa Waiver Program country, its nationals would be authorized for visa-free travel to the United States for business and tourism. The bilateral relationship between the United States and Poland has never been stronger, and this would serve as a remarkable accomplishment for both countries.

I am asking for as many Falcon Members to attend as possible. If you plan to attend please let me know as soon as possible so we can let the organizers know what to expect. Please contact me if you have any questions or need additional information.

Czolem,
