What do I need to know before travelling to Poland? Am I allowed to enter Poland without any restrictions?
Fans entering Poland with the purpose of attending UEFA Europa League Final 2021 need to consider the current travel restrictions and border entry requirements described below:
ENTRY TO POLAND
Due to the epidemiological situation, the list of people who can enter Poland is subject to special restrictions. As a rule, citizens of European Union member states, European Free Trade Association (EFTA) member states - parties to the European Economic Area or Swiss Confederation agreement, citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, as well as their spouses and children may enter Poland. The full list in English is available at the bottom of the following page:
Due to the epidemiological situation, currently people coming from the Schengen area and from outside the Schengen area are (regardless of the means of transport) obliged to undergo a 10-day quarantine (unless there are reasons exempting them from this obligation).
The following persons coming from within the Schengen area are exempt from the obligation to undergo quarantine:
persons vaccinated against COVID-19, i.e. persons who have received a full course of vaccination with a vaccine registered in the European Union.
persons with a negative PCR/antigenic test result (in Polish or English). The test should be performed abroad BEFORE entering Poland, but not earlier than 48 hours before crossing the border.
The following persons coming from outside the Schengen area are exempt from the obligation to undergo quarantine:
persons vaccinated against COVID-19, i.e. persons who have received a full vaccination course with a vaccine registered in the European Union.
persons who upon arrival in Poland (e.g. at an airport immediately after landing or at a different sampling point) will test for SARS-CoV-2 and obtain a negative result. These persons are also required to show a negative PCR/antigenic test result (in Polish or English) from a test performed abroad, not earlier than 48 hours BEFORE entering Poland.
Please note that the travel restrictions and border entry requirements are constantly evolving and subject to change. Such restrictions and requirements are established and can be modified only by the Polish authorities, not by UEFA. The information mentioned above is based on the latest information made available to UEFA by the local authorities. It is your responsibility to regularly check the government website to have the most accurate information.
TRAVELLING BACK FROM POLAND
For fans travelling back to Spain from Poland, there are no specific quarantine measures in place when arriving in Spain. For more details, we invite you to visit the Spanish government website.
For fans travelling back to the UK from Poland, according to the current rules from the UK Government website, they should quarantine at home or in the place they are staying at for 10 days and take a COVID-19 test on or before day 2 and on or after day 8. They may be able to end the quarantine early (5 days) through the 'test to release' scheme if they pay for a private COVID-19 test.
