  1. Polish identity card

    Every Polish citizen 18 years of age or older residing permanently in Poland must have an Identity Card issued by the local Office of Civic Affairs. Polish citizens living permanently abroad are entitled, but not required, to have one. Identity cards are valid for a period of 10 years. The front bears a photo of the owner, his/her given name, surname, date of birth, parents' names, gender and owner's signature. It also contains the coat of arms of the Republic of Poland, a security hologram, date of expiry and card number. On the back can be found the owner's address, place of birth, height, eye colour, date of issue, issuing authority and personal number in the form of a hologram. Below the PESEL is the card number and the data in machine-readable form. The Polish identity card is a travel document inside the European Union and, additionally, non-EU-member countries within the Schengen area - Norway, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Vatican City, San Marino and Monaco. Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania and Northern Cyprus allow Polish citizens to utilize the card for travel as well.
