COVID-19 Travel Information: Poland – October 2021
Latest updates on COVID-19 situation
The world is currently confronting the fourth wave of a pandemic caused by a coronavirus, but it is spreading much more slowly than previous ones. Thanks to vaccination campaigns in some regions of the world, the pandemic situation has significantly improved.
The epidemiological situation in Poland is currently one of the best in Europe and even in the world. The daily average of new COVID-19 cases over the last week is in the range of about 900 – 2000 cases. The increase ratio in infections is very slow. The Minister of Health in Poland has not announced the enforcement of any restrictions at this stage.
Coronavirus in the world – the safety measures taken in Poland
Since December 2020, when Covid-19 vaccination began in Poland, more than 37 million doses of vaccine have already been administered. This has enabled most restrictions to be lifted. As with other countries around the world, Poland is preparing for the fourth wave of the pandemic.
The latest report shows that the proportion of people vaccinated for every 100 inhabitants of the country in Poland is currently 99.02.
Regardless of the means of transport used (collective, individual, or when crossing the border on foot), travellers are subject to a 10-day quarantine upon entry, unless they meet one of the following conditions listed on the official Website of the Republic of Poland. This covers complete vaccination (certified in Polish or English), convalescent (no later than 6 months before the day crossing the Polish border), negative COVID-19 test result, or any exceptions listed on the governmental website.

Travelling opportunities in Poland
In order to slow down the spread of the coronavirus and protect the health and quality of life of all residents and tourists, certain travel restrictions are necessary.
