Before You Leave
Proof of negative pre-departure COVID-19 test results for vaccinated travelers
Vaccinated travelers arriving in Poland must have a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR or antigen test result issued a maximum of 24 hours before arrival in Poland.
Fully vaccinated travelers might be able to take a COVID-19 test on arrival at some airports in Poland instead of the pre-departure COVID-19 test, but only if airports have the approved facilities. Travelers are encouraged to verify this information on the website of the airport they are flying to, and check with their airline directly for acceptance of this exemption.
This requirement does not apply to:
- Travelers under the age of 5.
- A Pcr Test Up To 24 hours
- A Antigen Test Up To 24 hours
Mandatory proof of vaccination
Travelers who are fully vaccinated must present a COVID-19 vaccination certificate. Travelers are considered fully vaccinated once 14 days have passed since they completed the vaccination process for an EU-approved vaccine.
Travelers unable to present a valid certificate may be required to comply with rules for unvaccinated travelers.
Travelers have the option to present proof via EU Digital Certificate.
Mandatory passenger locator form
Travelers must fill up a passenger locator form before traveling. A digital form filled online is preferred but travelers can still fill a paper form provided by the airline.
Quarantine may be required for vaccinated travelers
Vaccinated travelers arriving without a negative pre-travel COVID 19 test result are required to quarantine for 14 days on arrival in Poland. Travelers may end their quarantine earlier by supplying a negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test on day 8 after arrival. Vaccinated travelers showing a negative pre-travel COVID-19 test on arrival are not required to quarantine.
Children up to 12 years of age crossing internal borders are exempt from quarantine if they travel under the care of adults who are vaccinated against COVID-19 or who have a negative COVID-19 test taken a maximum of 48 hours before crossing the border.
