As of November 11, 2019, Polish nationals are now eligible to apply for visa-free business or tourist visitor travel to the United States. Poland is now added to a list of 38 countries already in the B-1 Visa Waiver Program and are now eligible for Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA).
The Visa Waiver Program or ESTA is a program that allows citizens from certain countries to apply for admission to the U.S. using a simplified process. The applicant can use a web interface to answer certain questions and can be granted ESTA online. This contrasts to other countries where the applicants must go to a U.S. Consulate and apply for a B1/B2 visa.
The benefit of ESTA is that it is fast, inexpensive and efficient. The applicant can enter the U.S. quickly (does not have to wait for a visa appointment) and the validity period is 2 years. The down side is that applicants entering on Visa waiver can only stay in the U.S. for 90 days and they cannot change or adjust status.
