Due to recent "Reasons" my UK passport is not as useful as it once was for living and working in the EU. My grandfather is Polish. Which means I am able to get a Polish passport (Citizenship).

I want to do a quick check to see if there would be any downsides to this. (I will do a proper due diligence closer to the time)

I am particularly concerned if there my be National Service or Tax implications. Not just for myself but also for any children I may have. (I/They are/would be currently UK/NZ and NZ tax residents)

So my question is:

Are there any significant downsides to getting a Polish passport, as a citizen of a different country?

    The site expatriates.stackexchange.com may be better suited for this question as your question does not relate to a single travel issue. – Bernhard Döbler Mar 11 '20 at 8:27
  • You should ask on Expatriates, but this Wikipedia page might get you started. Scroll down to the section on dual nationality. – user105640 Mar 11 '20 at 9:21

    Since 2010 there is no National Service in Poland, so from that aspect there is no problem. – Mark Johnson Mar 11 '20 at 9:52
