I'm Nwanjoku Daniel Ikechukwu from the Eastern part of Nigeria and my brother is a Permanent Resident in Poland and he has been sick of Neorological Disorder and Leukaemia and he had since wanted me to visit him before Corona Virus broked out. Is it possible now to visit him base on the COVID19 situation on ground? Besides there's no corona virus case in my country just a political propaganda.

Hello - No I am sorry, Poland is under a partial lockdown and is not allowing visitors from Nigeria. You could always contact the embassy or consulate and ask them to make an exception for compassionate grounds, but I am not sure they will

Hey again Es a Israeli I understand that I can enter Germany from another eu county, for instance Greece. If I manage to enter Germany, will I be able to cross the land borders to Poland with no problems?

I appreciate your help!

Hello - There is no answer right now sorry. Most EU nations also want you to be a RESIDENT of a 'safe' or 'approved' country right now, and each country may have additional restrictions for travelers trying to use other countries as loopholes for entry. The only way to know is to ask each nation's border police and get a straight answer from them.

Please note: Hotels are not permitted for leisure stays in Poland right now, so staying there might be an issue. Also both Germany and Poland have most things closed, it really isn't the time to visit
