Surely useless, no way to get in touch with the staff.

Does the staff ever view this site to see what people think about this institution?

Sad, they must have the communist-style work ethics and no shame, as the situation with reaching the consulate has not change bit over the past 20 some years.

Shame on you fat bureaucrats.

You call yourself a consultant, more like dumbass association. Went there personally before and they two stupid ladies that work there and don't do anything. Getting a hold of this place is a miracle too, biggest piece of crap I've seen. Literally why even call yourself a polish consultant.

Cannot contact a person by phone
We have 8 people who need a Work Visa Type D for Kutno Poland and we need to know if they need an appointment to come to Washington D.C. to obtain this visa. We are on a timeline that is very short and would appreciate someone contacting me at 731-423-7427. Barrie Harper, Mgmt Systems at Kellogg Plant in Jackson, Tennessee

Totally agree with previous responses. I've attempted to call the Embassy NUMEROUS times...no response, no voice mail set up...I tried at least 5 different extensions at different times of a day...It's a shame, you can't get any information, and the Embassy's web page is completely chaotic. I had to get my marriage registered in Poland, and it took the Embassy almost 3 months to even fax the paperwork to Poland...Makes me think that my file was just piled up somewhere and nobody really cares. Bureaucracy and chaos!

Poor responsiveness!!!
Having called this Embassy well over 8 times, finally was given another number to call for passport renewals. It has been days and I'm still trying to reach that other department. The website is sub par, it feels like no one is working there. Having 3 citizenship's it's quite clear which one i should give up. Totalny balagan!!!

Why does the Polish Embassy not have an official government domain webpage? The page they offer is some low-budget garbage, and is wholy unhelpful. What a major disappointment, and what a joke!

Also, why does it take several dozen attempts to call before reaching anyone? And there is no voicemail service... This is unacceptable for a government agency of any type, of any nationality.

Get with it, people need help. Especially since Poland doesn't offer foreigners with Polish children the same as USA offers Poles with American children: immediate residency and work rights. Another major folly.
