Poland will be reopening for tourism on June 13th, first allowing EU countries to visit, and then expanding to a list of third-party countries in July.
Poland made the announcement that it will be reopening its borders and lifting restrictions to visitors coming in from the 26 countries of the European Union, and the 4 EFTA nations.
While the government of Poland was very clear that they will open borders to EU countries, our contact at the government-run tourism board also mentioned this should include visitors from the UK, which many other European countries have been neglecting.
