Poland: New Process for Individuals Vaccinated Abroad

Last Updated on February 23, 2023

Key Points  

  • The government of Poland will allow qualified individuals to obtain an EU Digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate  


The government of Poland will allow individuals vaccinated outside of Poland to be registered with the Poland e-Health system beginning 22 Dec. 2021. This will apply to all citizens of Poland and foreign nationals permitted to participate in the National Immunization Program, who were vaccinated outside of Poland to obtain an EU COVID-19 vaccination certificate. These individuals will need to be fully vaccinated (including having received a booster dose) with an EU approved vaccine or a vaccine approved by the Polish government.
