This thread is marked as being about Poland

Hi There ! can someone please advise me on this issue?

I came to Poland on visit visa in 2003 and stayed back in Poland till 2008. Since 2008 m back in my own country working in MNC earning better than i did in POland lol :). Trust me Poland is good for tourism not settle down i suffered a lot :). Well I have lots of good friends in Poland and some of them visited me in India too..Now my friend is getting married in August and they want me to b there for the WEDDING and also planning some good vacation in Poland with friends. I have the Invitation already, but my question is when i will apply for the tourist visa for couple of weeks, is there any chance of getting rejected because of my history i mean that the last visit i didnt turned up back to my country Although it was in 2003, before POL going in EU? So can someone please advise me on this issue?

If I understand your post correctly, you
- came to Poland on a tourist visa in 2003
- overstayed this visa by about five years
- worked illegally

and are now asking if this is somehow stored in the Polish system and might work against you now that you want to apply for another tourist visa.

Do I have this right? If so, the simple answer is nobody here will know. If you didn't run into any trouble when leaving Poland, it's posible that nobody noticed your overstay, but there's no guarantee. You'll have to apply for the visa and only then will you know.

There's also no saying you were in poland for the entire time, you could have traveled europe and ended up back in poland five years later how would they know?

They would know because OP is from India, and as an Indian citizen needs to get a visa. If s/he had "ended up in Poland five years later", s/he could only have done this after applying for a Schengen visa, which would be in the passport.
