Security and Confidentiality of Belarusian Citizens’ Personal Data in Poland

In response to the inquiries received by NAM regarding the security of personal data for Belarusians who have obtained  the status of international or additional protection in Poland, we would like to highlight the following points.

In our assessment, there is currently no justification to suggest any systematic transfer of personal data of Belarusians who have experienced political persecution in Belarus and are currently in Poland to representatives of the Lukashenko regime.

We would like to emphasize that the Polish authorities are taking every possible measure to ensure the protection of Belarusian refugees and individuals in need of protection. Through numerous bilateral meetings, it has become evident that the Polish competent authorities are continuously working towards enhancing the protection of these individuals and their data, as well as improving their status and living conditions. Relevant matters are regularly discussed between representatives of the competent Polish departments and representatives of the United Transitional Cabinet of Belarus, NAM, and civil society. Specialized working groups have been established for this purpose and are actively functioning.

We firmly believe that Poland serves as a reliable haven for hundreds of thousands of Belarusians who have been compelled to leave their homeland. Poland provides the most favorable regime for entry, residency, and social support, along with the right to work and social integration programs. Furthermore, special measures have been developed for issuing international travel documents. These efforts represent only a fraction of the comprehensive actions undertaken.
