Germany have stayed No. 1, followed by Brazil and European champions Portugal.
The ranking means that Poland will be among eight top-seeded teams in a World Cup finals draw, officials have said.
FIFA has confirmed that the seven highest-ranked nations will join hosts Russia as top-seeded teams in the draw in Moscow on December 1.
Poland’s No. 5 spot in the FIFA table earlier this year was the best result for the Polish team since the world football governing body’s ranking was launched in 1992.
Poland's lowest place was 78th, in 2013.
The ranking factors in the final score of games played over the past four years, and whether the match was friendly or competitive, the rank of the opponent and other variables.
