#Alert: End of state of epidemic in Poland. Health Minister provides the date.


Pursuant to new Regulation of the Council of Ministers current provisions on restrictions connected with state of epidemic will be prolonged. These rules are elaborated here: They are to apply until 31 May 2022.

At the same time, today Health Minister announced to lift the state of epidemic in mid-May and to return the state of epidemic emergency. We should expect further changes and possibly easing of restrictions by this date.

Despite the lifting of state of epidemic, the current extensions of temporary residence permits, national visas and some other documents under so-called COVID-19 regulations will remain if force. This also applies, in particular, to extensions of the validity of work permits and special permissions.

The automatic extensions of the validity periods of documents issued to non-nationals will apply until the currently scheduled state of epidemic emergency is canceled and within the next 30 days. This will be the case, of course, assuming that an epidemic state is not reintroduced in the meantime due to another wave of infections.
