Poland has reopened its national borders to transit passengers, which means that people seeking to return to Estonia no longer need to search for alternative routes to do so, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Entry to Poland will be granted to passengers from EU member states, parties to the European Economic Area (EEA) Agreement and citizens of Switzerland, their spouses and their children who need to travel through Polish territory in order to reach their permanent or registered place of residence, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

Transit time through Poland may not exceed 12 hours from the time of entry into the country. Quarantine will not be imposed upon arrival to Poland, however, people will be required to cover their mouths and noses with a mask or item of clothing in public spaces.

Those seeing to travel through Poland for any other reason, such as employment in another country where they do not have a registered place of residence, are advised to contact the embassy.
