        Restrictions introduced by Polish Government:

        New restrictions are in effect until 18 April, unless extended 


        Large DIY/furniture/construction stores (over 2 000 sq. metres) will be closed. 

        Facilities in shopping centres (malls) will remain closed, except grocery stores, pharmacies, cosmetic stores, newsagents and bookstores. 

        New social distance limits for trade outlets located at marketplaces and post offices: 

        • 1 person per 15 sq. m – for spaces up to 100 sq. m 
        • 1 person per 20 sq. m – for spaces over 100 sq. m 

        Hairdressers and beauty salons will are closed throughout Poland, starting from 27 March. The use of sports facilities will be limited to professional activities. Events are to take place without audience attendance. 

        The present restrictions for restaurants, clubs, hotels, cultural events (etc.) are still valid. In the city space (etc.), face masks and social distance rules are still mandatory, and you should follow the recommendations on hand disinfection and avoiding unnecessary trips or visits. 

        New restrictions are in effect until 18 April, unless extended. 

        Please stay updated with news services and government website.

        Since the outbreak of pandemic and as of March 2021, no curfew or mobility restrictions have been imposed in the territory of Poland. Still, border control may be introduced for a designated period of time with specific countries.

        Remember that the following rules are still obligatory to follow:

        • It is mandatory to cover your mouth and nose whenever outside your apartment. A medical-type and/or cloth face mask is to be used (a scarf or visor are not enough). Exceptions: forests, public parks or gardens, beaches.
        • Universities continue with online studies.
        • Night clubs, discos and other places for dancing are closed.
        • Restaurants/bars can serve only take away menu.
        • Public gatherings may be attended by no more than 5 persons.
        • It is prohibited to organise meetings and parties, regardless of their nature – except for parties and meetings organised at private homes and attended by up to 5 persons in addition to the host(s).



        Covid-19 infections are on the rise, so you should embrace the security measures (social distance, covering mouth and nose, personal disinfection) – as well as you should notify the medical service if you have suspicious symptoms or are otherwise feeling unwell after contacting someone displaying such symptoms. As of now (March) the standard first step is calling your GP, or first-contact doctor.

        For testing, your personal GP acting under NFZ can refer you to a state-funded PCR test if you have symptoms. Otherwise, you can sign up for a payable test (ca. PLN 500) through a private service, some of which advertise online (uPacjenta, Diagnostyka). You may possibly find fast tests at regular shops in town, but please note these may not be up to the international (PCR) standard.

        The most common symptoms of Covid-19 include dry cough, fever, aches and pains, loss of taste or smell, and unexpected tiredness. Some sufferers have just two or three of these symptoms, while others feel seriously ill. Still, medical experts know of a number of other symptoms.

        Please stay updated with the rules of entering Poland during pandemic, because these may change fast, also in relation to different countries. As long as fast-changing restrictions are imposed in many EU/Schengen countries, international travel is not recommended except emergencies. Please be assured that if your Polish visa expires in Poland, your legal stay will be automatically extended up to 30th day after the state of epidemic / epidemic alert is lifted – however, this special rule does not apply if you leave Poland.
