“Poland has tightened entry restrictions for Russian citizens following an order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Poland and the administration.”
This decision was the result of agreements between the prime ministers of Poland, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia.
According to the new rules, citizens of the Russian Federation are prohibited from entering the territory of the Republic of Poland through the external border from September 19, 2022, for economic, sports, tourist or cultural purposes.
The ban also applies to entry through air and sea border crossings.
“The initiative is aimed at involving the remaining EU member states and its institutions to develop a common position on limiting other than absolutely necessary trips by Russian citizens,” the Polish Ministry of Internal Affairs informs.
According to the new restrictions on entry to Poland and the Baltic states, exceptions are made for certain categories of Russians, including “dissidents”, “humanitarians”, family members and holders of residences in EU countries.
