The U.S. State Department has formally nominated Poland for the Visa Waiver Program, the White House said in a statement Friday.
Additional information: There are currently 38 countries in the Visa Waiver Program, which allows eligible travelers to come to the U.S. without a visa, provided they register and obtain an Electronic System Travel Authorization (ESTA) before boarding their flight.
BAL Analysis: Poland has long sought visa-free travel to the United States, and the addition of Poland to the Visa Waiver Program would ease procedures for Polish tourists and business travelers. Travelers should note, however, that procedures have not yet changed and Polish nationals will be required to obtain a visa until DHS makes a final determination on the country’s entry into the program.
