dual citzenship

Post by euro4ever » Sun Jul 01, 2012 9:03 pm

Hey guys I got my Polish Passport a few months ago & would like to use it for the first time when I go to poland next week.
what if any problems would I encounter?

I was born in Canada & I'm 30 years old.

I was reading this & a few things got me worried.

Poland ended ''conscription'' - 2008


Following in the footsteps of France and Spain, both of which abandoned conscription earlier in the decade, Poland's defence minister, Bogdan Klich, said the country will move towards a professional army and that from January, only volunteers will join the armed forces.

Without conscription, the Polish army, which stood 180,000-strong in 1999 when Poland joined Nato, will shrink to about 120,000. Poland has had a conscription army since before the Second World War, and the draft has long cast an unwelcome and controversial shadow over the lives of hundreds of thousands 18-year-old men.

Poland's 48,000 conscripts are banned by law from being sent on foreign missions, rendering them "not operationally useful", according to Lieutenant-Colonel Artur Galwaski, an army spokesman.

"Ending conscription will allow us to have fully-trained professionals who understand their duty, and the equipment they use," he said.

I often travel on both my Polish and Canadian passports. Never had any problems, even though technically they could charge you.
Make sure you have both on you, i've noticed that the PL border authorities occasionally ask to see both (especially when you're in PL for longer than 3 months).

Canada is part of The Commonwealth and has most of the world's resources.
