Rules for travellers arriving into Poland
from Member States of the European Union, from within the Schengen Area

 
We would like to kindly inform you that passengers who, after arriving in Poland from outside the Schengen area or from outside the European Union, want to make a test in order to obtain an exemption from quarantine in accordance with the applicable regulations (applies only to vaccinated passengers) may use all testing points of Warsaw Chopin Airport.


A detailed list of available points for testing is below.
 

On-line registration for testing points operated by the Damian Medical Center (Applies to: Gate 1N-4N, Stand No. 1 - Luggage Reclaim Hall, Parking P3):

All passengers planning to make a test at the Airport (at the points serviced by Damian MC) are asked to register on-line. Registration speeds up the entire process and reduces the waiting time.

Registration is voluntary - however it significantly speeds up the service, it does not mean you have an obligation to use the Damian MC testing point. People who register with Damian can also use the points of the Central Clinical Hospital of the Ministry of Interior and Administration, but will have to re-register at the reception desk.

Registration:

Note 1: There is a pre-border testing point at the airport, but for operational reasons it is only available to passengers on some flights - other passengers can use the testing points after crossing the border.

Note 2: The condition for the release from quarantine of passengers who crossed the border is to perform a test at the airport within three hours of crossing the border (passport control) and a negative result of this test.
