Abstract: Due to a multifunctional character of land, including agricultural land, the European Union member states introduce to their internal legislation provisions hindering or preventing foreigners from purchasing it. On her accession to the European Union in 2004, Poland negotiated a very long, covering 12 years, period of ban on agricultural land sales to foreigners. However, some cases of granting permission to purchase property to foreigners were noted during this period. Owing to experiences of other countries and because of the danger of strengthening speculative practises on the market, new regulations governing the agricultural land turnover entered into force in 2016. As has been presented by statistical data, the provisions efficiently cut of the access to Poland’s land for foreigners, but also for some Polish citizens. The paper presents an analysis of new regulations and an attempt at finding the answer to the question whether the legislator’s decision was fully compliant with the primary legislation of the European Union.
