Poland to open borders ‘within days, maybe weeks’

It is a matter of days, maybe weeks, until Poland reopens borders between the countries of the region, foreign minister, Jacek Czaputowicz, said on Tuesday (2 June) during a summit of foreign ministers with the Baltic states in Estonia.

Czaputowicz said that everything was “on track” for travel to resume “before the holidays”. He added that experts will have to assess the risks of travelling to neighbouring countries in the near future.

“Our strategies were good and we are now in a better position than other European countries,” he said.

Domestic flights within Poland resumed this week between eight cities.

However, international rail and air connections are still suspended, non-resident foreigners are banned from entry and those permitted to enter – both Polish citizens and foreigners – need to remain in quarantine for two weeks.
