Nearly all of the European Union countries are in it except for Cyprus, Romania and Bulgaria, who are legally obliged to join, and the UK and Ireland who have opted out. Despite not being in the EU Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein and Switzerland are also members of the Schengen Area. If you are a EU citizen you do not need a visa to work or travel to Poland.
