It's correct. Ency 13:21, 27 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]

If I try to arrive to Poland via some third country in Schengen zone (say, Sweden), will approval be less likely? has such option as 23. Member State of first entry. Incnis Mrsi 11:35, 23 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]

I don't know. Perhaps this will have an impact, maybe not. Ency 13:21, 27 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]
As far as I know, it shouldn't, since the Schengen Area is one big area where you can freely enter through one place and exit through another. Although I do not need a visa, in the event that I needed to get one, you're supposed to get a visa for the country you'll be staying in the longest (Poland), stops notwithstanding. --Sky Harbor 17:18, 27 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Longest or "more important" stay. We already have some participants that attend some other event in France before Wikimania and they have applied for a visa in the French consulate, and have received it.  « Saper // @talk »  21:10, 27 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]
