Chase Manhattan Corp. has applied to Polish banking authorities for permission to open a bank in Warsaw, Chase officials disclosed this week. The Polish bank is the second that Chase is attempting to set up in Eastern Europe. Last week, Chase and Citicorp confirmed that they have filed applications to open banks in Moscow.

Chase has had a representative office in Moscow since 1974 but has no banking offices in Warsaw. It also maintains a representative office in Prague.
