    4.      Travelling with firearms.

     

     

    Travelling with hunting weapons to Poland is possible if you have either permission issued by the Embassy or European Weapon Permit. 

     

    I. Permission issued by the Embassy :

     

     

    The permission may be issued only for persons who are at least 21 years old.

    One permission is issued for all weapons brought for the same hunt. No separate permission is required for additional weapon(s).

    The permission is valid for up to 30 days as of the date of entry into Poland. If the permission expires while the hunter is still in Poland, the weapon and ammunition should be deposited in the police station closest to the hunter's place of stay in Poland

    The ammunition to the weapon specified on the permission should not exceed 100 bullets. Additionally, on the basis of a valid permission, the hunter is entitled to buy ammunition to his/her weapon(s) in Poland

    While crossing the Polish border, the hunter should present the permission to the Border Guard officers to receive stamps that confirm the import and export of weapon to and from Poland.

     

    The following documents are required by the Embassy to issue the permission:

    1.good-quality, legible photocopy of the hunter's passport (page with photo),

    2.good-quality, legible photocopy of the hunter's Swedish weapon permission,

    3.voucher (confirmation of booking of the hunt) issued by the Polish organizer

    4.filled-in application form.

     

    The documents may be brought in personally or sent to the Consular Section by post.

     

     

    II. European Weapon Permit :

     

    According to the Polish law, from the 1 of May 2004, holders of the European Weapon Permits may enter Poland with their hunting weapons in case of participation in hunting events if they can prove the real reason for the necessity to travel with a weapon. This means that the European Weapon Permit alone will not be sufficient for a person to enter into Poland with a weapon. The person will have to have additional document for example a voucher for hunting. The weapon imported into Poland should be specified in the European Weapon Permit. The ammunition to the weapon should not exceed 100 bullets.

     

    We also inform that after the 1st of May 2004 persons can still obtain a permission to enter Poland with their hunting weapons from the Consular Section of the Embassy (as described in point I.).
