QUICK TESTS AFTER ARRIVAL

In order to meet the needs of passengers, in accordance with the current regulations, we would like to inform you that from January 30th 2021 each passenger arriving from direct flight from Non Schengen country can perform at our airport a quick antigen test for the presence of coronavirus. The COVID-19 diagnostic point is located before border control zone. The cost of the test is PLN 200, the waiting time for the result – ca. 15 minutes. A negative test result allows you to be released from a 10-day quarantine. The diagnostic point is always open on each arrival from the Non Schengen country, even at night.

According to the current regulations, the results of these tests are accepted by the relevant authorities as they are performed before crossing the border control line.
