ATTENTION! According to the REGULATION OF THE COUNCIL OF MINISTERS of December 15, 2021, new regulations regarding quarantine upon arrival in Poland apply.

➙ obligation to perform a test (antigen or PCR) within 24 hours before crossing the border (applies to all passengers, including those who are vaccinated). The antigen test can be performed right after landing at Wrocław Airport. More information about the tests HERE.

➙ Note! On December 17, there was an amendment to the regulation related to COVID-19 tests for passengers arriving in Poland from Non Schengen countries and countries outside the European Union:

1. The following was added to the group of people exempted from the tests before crossing the border:
– children under the age of 5;
– passengers who take the elementary school examination, matriculation examination, examination confirming qualifications in an occupation or vocational examination, conducted by district examination boards, and their guardians
– all persons crossing the border of the Republic of Poland in the performance of professional activities that were subject to exemptions in the previous version (aircraft crews, drivers, sailors etc.)

2. Under the new regulations, a passenger who crosses the border without presenting a negative test result and is placed in quarantine, still has the option to perform the test at the airport within 3 hours from crossing the border. If the test result is negative, the person will be released from quarantine. However, we recommend that you perform the test before crossing the border, at a test centre open after each arrival. Thanks to this, the passenger will not be quarantined, which will exclude any complications related to its lifting, and the time of border control will be significantly shorter in this case.

New rules on the exemption of professional groups will come into force on December 17, 2021 and the rules on post-border tests and the exemption from child tests from December 18, 2021.
