Good Morning

Is anyone aware if Polish immigration visa's are still in existence and the passports accompnaying them. I am particularly interested in Polish visa number 1450 for a Maria Witkowska in 1929.

Jim

Yes, Polish citizens still have to have visas (and passports, too) if they want visit the USA.

Hi Jim,

Good question.......I learned something new......Good day! Very Happy

NARA Historical Records Series
Visa Files, July 1, 1924 to March 31, 1944
Visa Files are original arrival records of immigrants admitted for permanent residence under provisions of the Immigration Act of 1924. Visa forms contain all information normally found on a ship passenger list of the period, as well as the immigrant’s places of residence for 5 years prior to emigration, names of both the immigrant’s parents, and other data. Attached to the visa in most cases are birth records or affidavits. Also attached may be marriage, military, or police records. The Visa Files exist only in hard copy (textual) format.

Hope this is what you're looking for.
