Polish borders shut down in order to contain COVID-19. International train connections suspended


Starting on 15 March (Sunday) all international passenger railway and air connections to Poland have been suspended. Freight transport should operate without restrictions. All inland passenger railway services are also fully provided.

Staring on Sunday 15 March until further notice the transborder transfer of passengers in railway transport has been suspended with regard to the territory of Poland. This means that all international passenger railway services have been halted. If you travelled abroad this last Saturday, please check on the carrier’s website whether the train which you intended to make a return trip with, will still be in operation. Some carriers – due to operational reasons – had already on Saturday decided to suspend some connections.  

Passenger carriers, due to the nature of the situation, have introduced special regulations with regard to the international ticket returns. You will find the details on the internet websites of the carriers.

The provisions with regard to the closing of the borders have been introduced by the Regulation of the Minister of Health on the proclamation of the state of epidemic threat on the territory of the Republic of Poland (Polish version only). This aims at containing the increase of the level of SARS-CoV-2 cases in our country.

You will find more on the measures by the Polish government with regard to COVID-19 on this website.
