COVID-19 Travel Information: Poland – September 2021
Latest updates on the COVID-19 situation
The international organisation “EndCoronavirus” publishes ongoing data on how countries are coping with the coronavirus pandemic. Its members include epidemiologists, clinicians, analysts, social scientists, entrepreneurs, among others. It was established on 29 February 2020 in response to the outbreak of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
The report includes information from over 140 countries worldwide. Countries are divided into three categories depending on how they are coping with COVID-19. The green colour indicates those countries that are “winning against the pandemic”, the yellow colour indicates those that are on track to stop spreading the coronavirus, while the red colour refers to those places where the situation is bad and “radical response is needed”.
The epidemiological situation in Poland is currently one of the best in Europe and even in the world. The infection graph has been very flat for several weeks. The daily average of new COVID-19 cases over the last week is in the range of about 300 – 500 cases. Poland is currently in the yellow zone.
Coronavirus in the world – the safety measures taken in Poland
Since December 2020, when Covid-19 vaccination began in Poland, more than 36 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 50,4. The index, which indicates the average daily number of coronavirus infections over the last seven days (1st week of September) for the whole country, is now 305.
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. The government in Poland has extended the prevailing epidemic restrictions until the end of September 2021.

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. Poland makes every effort to enable people to meet friends and family, travel for work or enjoy tourism, and to ensure the free movement of citizens, goods and services – with full respect for safety and hygiene measures.
