Poland has its own risk categorization system, thus travel restrictions inside the nation are not based on the European Union‘s “Traffic Light” map.


As a result, the Polish government has declared that visitors from 26 EU member states would be able to enter Poland’s territory without restriction due to low infection rates. Poland permits admission to four Schengen Area nations as well as Turkey, with the exception of a few EU members.


Travelers who have been vaccinated against the COVID-19 disease,  should be aware that Poland only accepts vaccinations that have been authorized for use by the European Medicines Agency as acceptable proof of immunity (EMA).


As a result, only the following vaccinations are recognized as acceptable proof of vaccination:




Johnson & Johnson

Proof of vaccination is valid for 14 days after the last dosage, according to the vaccination status.


All people arriving from one of the EU/Schengen Area countries or Turkey who present a certificate indicating that they have recovered from the virus within the past six months are also permitted to enter without restrictions.



Those who want to report a negative COVID-19 test result should take both PCR and fast antigen tests within 48 hours of arrival, according to the guidelines.


Children under the age of 12 who are traveling with a guardian who has been vaccinated, tested, or recovered from the virus can enter Poland, according to Polish officials.
