  4. My grandfather was born in Gliniany, Tarnopol Wojewodztwa/ukraine in 1890. He came to the US in the very early years of the 20th century. I have the documents of his birth, the records are Fond 300 in AGAD Archive. Is it possible for me to get an EU passport? It was part of the Austro Hungarian empire when he was born.

  5. Hello,

    My Grandad was born in Poland in 1925. He left Poland in 1939 and fought as part of the British army in WW2, despite being underage. After WW2, he stayed in Britain working as a miner. He married and my Dad was then born in 1951. I was born in 1988 and my Grandad died in 1999. I am unsure what year he gained British citizenship but I imagine it was after the war in around 1945.
    My Dad has never sought Polish citizenship but I would like to pursue it if I can. Am I eligible? Thanks for your help.

  6. My mother’s grandparents left Lemberg (now L’vov) when it was part of Austria-Hungary in the very early 1900’s. Is there any European country that will accept this as the basis for a passport application or dual citizenship?

  7. Hello

    They escaped during world war 2 and arrived in Australia, where I was born
    Can I get a dual passport ?

  8. How can I get Polish Citizenship? I am in contact with the grandchildren from my mother’s neighbors. I even have proof of where my great great grandparents down to my parents birth in Poland. Do I need an attorney or my witnesses are enough proof.

    1. Dear Rose,
      Thank you for your query!
      The process of reclaiming Polish citizenship is administrative rather than legal so it is unlikely that you will need an attorney. However, you will need proof of your direct ancestors being Polish citizens after 1918. Witness statements will not be enough and thorough documentation is required.
      Please contact our team of EU citizenship specialists at citizenship@polaron.com.au as they would be delighted to discuss your case in more detail.

      Yours truly,
      Professor Adamski
