U.S. has granted Polish entry into visa waiver program

U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters on Friday he had officially allowed Polish entry into a U.S. visa waiver program.

Trump said last month that he would grant Poland access to the State Department’s Visa Waiver Program, which grants citizens of participating countries travel to the United States for business or tourism for up to 90 days without a visa. Poland has long sought entry into the visa waiver program.

“President Trump informed President Duda that he expects to announce Poland’s entry into the Visa Waiver Program in the coming weeks,” the White House said in a brief statement about the talks on the sidelines of the annual U.N.

General Assembly in late September. “But you can report back to the people of Poland and the Polish people in the United States that President Trump got it done and nobody else could for a long time as you know,” Trump told Duda in Washington in September.

Trump added that “the visa waivers are in store what’s already approved and we’re doing it mechanically now, so that we get them done as soon as we can”.

“It was very important, I think, for the president to get that done and he was able to do it through a lot of hard work,” Trump underscored the role of the Polish President.

Trump has also pledged to move 1,000 U.S. troops to Poland, with the Polish government paying to build facilities for them.
