Polish Table Tennis Association will apply for special permission from Main Sanitary Inspectorate for all Conference-participants arriving to Poland from outside the EU to release them from quarantine obligation.
As of 13 June 2020, Poland have restored full border traffic within the internal borders of the European Union. This means that you can travel freely cross the internal borders of the European Union. Travelers will regain the right to free entry, exit and transit through the territory of the Republic of Poland. They do not have to quarantine.
Restriction concerns: foreigners crossing the EU's external border.
Poland’s country's borders, which are also the EU's external borders, remain closed. They may be crossed only by, among others:
- Polish citizens,
- foreigners who are spouses or children of citizens of the Republic of Poland or remain under the constant care of citizens of the Republic of Poland;
- holders of a Pole's Card,
- heads of diplomatic missions and members of the mission's diplomatic and consular staff, i.e. persons having a diplomatic rank and members of their families;
- people who have the right of permanent or temporary residence in the Republic of Poland or a work permit,
- in particularly justified cases, the commander of the Border Guard post – after obtaining the consent of the Commander-in-Chief of the Border Guard – may allow a foreigner to enter the territory of the Republic of Poland in accordance with the procedure specified in the Act of 12 December 2013 on foreigners
- foreigners who run a means of transport designed for the transport of persons or goods, and whose transit takes place as part of their professional activities consisting in the transport of goods or persons,
- citizens of European Union Member States, European Free Trade Agreement (EFTA) Member States - parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area or the Swiss Confederation and their spouses and children, when traveling through the territory of the Republic of Poland to their place of residence or stay,
- pupils and students receiving education in the Republic of Poland;
- citizens of European Union Member States, European Free Trade Agreement (EFTA) Member States – parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area or the Swiss Confederation and their spouses and children, when traveling through the territory of our country to their place of residence or stay
- foreigners with a permanent residence permit or a long-term resident's European Union residence permit, in the territory of other European Union Member States, a Member State of the European Free Trade Agreement (EFTA) – parties to the agreement on the European Economic Area or the Swiss Confederation and their spouses and children, when traveling through the territory of the Republic of Poland, to their place of residence or stay.
Restriction concerns people who:
- cross the border of the Republic of Poland constituting the external border of the EU*,
- have had contact with persons infected (or potentially infected) with coronavirus,
- live with the person who is quarantined
* The external border is determined by the provisions of Article 2 point 2 of the Regulation (EU) 2016/399 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2016 on a Union Code on the rules governing the movement of persons across borders (Schengen Borders Code) (OJ EU L 77 of 23.03.2016, p. 1 as amended).
The list of persons excluded from the mandatory quarantine when crossing the external border of the EU is set out in the provisions of the Regulation of the Council of Ministers of 19 June 2020 on establishing certain restrictions, orders and bans in connection with the occurrence of the state of the epidemic.
The mandatory quarantine will last until the negative result of the SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic test for no more than 14 days. So far it has always been 14 days.
During this time:
- you cannot leave the house,
- walking the dog, going to the store or to the doctor are prohibited,
- if a quarantined person has close contacts with other people at home – they must also be quarantined,
- in case of symptoms of the disease (malaise, fever, coughing, shortness of breath), it is necessary to report this by phone to the sanitary and epidemiological station.
