The waiting period for a Polish passport

In the case of individuals who are applying for a Polish passport in Poland, the waiting period is about 1 month.
The situation is different when it comes to Polish passport applications submitted at a Polish consulate. Then, the waiting period is longer and may take even 6 months. This mostly applies to cases where an applicant needs to submit a PESEL number application along with a Polish passport application and the additional procedure extends the waiting period. In the meantime, a Polish citizen can obtain a temporary passport.
