Submitting the application to certify Polish citizenship

As previously mentioned, the application to have Polish citizenship certified is considered by a Polish administrative unit called a Provincial Office (urząd wojewódzki). Therefore the application has to be submitted there. The persons who reside in Poland submit the application at a Provincial Office according to their place of residence. Thus, if the applicant lives in Cracow, then he/she submits the application in Cracow. If the applicant was born in Poland but does not reside there, then he/she submits the application according to the last place of residence before leaving Poland. It applies to Polish emigrants who were born in Poland and emigrated permanently to another country.
