Heavy restrictions on crossings between Polish borders to limit the spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) epidemic have been extended until at least 13 April, the Polish Interior Ministry has decided.

Trade of goods is still permitted, as is the return of Polish citizens and a select group of foreigners who:

  • are married to Polish citizens
  • are children of a Polish citizen
  • possess a Karta Polaka
  • or have a permanent or temporary residence permit in Poland issued by Polish authorities.

However, those returning to Poland must be quarantined for 14 days at home.
