The Federal Foreign Office has updated its travel advice for passengers traveling to Poland.
The Foreign Ministry said there could be significant disruption to flights to and from Polish airports in the coming days due to a planned protest by air traffic controllers.
If planning to travel to or through a Polish airport, the DFA recommends passengers to contact their airline to check the status of their flight.
It also advised passengers to get to the airport early to account for possible delays.
The FDFA said passengers should exercise “a high level of caution” when traveling to Poland.
Before travelling, the Department strongly recommends that passengers obtain a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), which can be obtained from the HSE.
It has also recommended that passengers take out “comprehensive” travel insurance that covers all medical expenses abroad, including “medical repatriation/evacuation, repatriation of remains and legal expenses”.
Passengers should check if exclusions are excluded and in particular if their policy will cover them for the activities they wish to undertake.
The FDFA said it is closely monitoring the situation in Ukraine and that certain restrictive measures along the Polish-Belarusian border remain in effect.
She encouraged all Irish citizens in Poland to register their details with the embassy and to monitor their social media channels for the latest updates.
There are no Covid-19 restrictions for travel to Poland. It is not necessary to provide vaccination certificates or a negative Covid-19 test or to fill out a passenger locator form.
