About the embassy
The Philippines did not initially open a resident embassy in Poland when diplomatic relations between the Philippines and Poland were established on September 22, 1973. Diplomatic relations between the two countries were originally conducted via the Philippine Embassy in the Hague, which maintained jurisdiction over Poland until 1982, when jurisdiction was transferred to the Philippine Embassy in Berlin. In 1991, with the democratization of Poland, jurisdiction was transferred to the Philippines' newly opened resident embassy in Warsaw.
