A tad strange, if I may say so
PA, going to Poland (whether or not You're originally from there) will require passports and other paperwork.

I figured if I was from there, I would not need anything. Thanks for the info.

Noonsite, is that where they have clearance information for all countries? I must check that out. I have Polish friends, does it matter that I am not from Poland?

PA, I'm not trying to be rude, but you seem to be a very na´ve person - You're probably also a nice and decent person, who desperately needs to do some reading, and probably a reality check?
I wish you the best of luck, and hope you get out sailing - why don't you start by crewing for someone?
..... And since noone else has mentioned it, check out http://www.noonsite.com

Mate I don't wish to sound impolite but if you haven't worked this out - you are in no state to go any where.
Go talk to your local Customs/ Emigration Officer or simply go down to the local yacht club and ask those who have been there before you.
Ive spent 40 years sailing about the world and that's what I did in the early 1960's with very few who had preceded me.
The main thing is to get these questions answered as soon as possible so you can get out there on that big blue expanse

An old salt from Australia wishes you "Fair Winds"

If one is going to insist here are a few hints:
  • Best do it in French else one'll come second in the argument
  • Best make sure one gets one's deposit back from the same bank i.e. don't clear out from another FP island.
  • Best wait in the bank to make sure that no-one else comes in looking for US$ because they'll get it first.
  • If one is going to clear out from another island, one could probably ask the bank to send one's US$ there so that one can get it back.
I guess that when the bank says it doesn't have US$ there's not a lot you can do, insist all you like, you'll get back what they want to give you.

And no, I didn't write or read anything for/on Noonsite. I can ony assume they hold the view that
  • when you give them your deposit the teller puts it in a little box under her counter for safe-keeping.
  • If you don't ask them to "keep it in US$", they reformat the notes into Pacific francs while they're in the bank's care.
  • They don't expect you to pay by Visa or Amex.
Whatever.
