Dear Patients and our Guests,

Both as a country and as private medical facilities, we have implemented strict security measures, to make sure our Patients are safe, so we could perform the medical procedures in a planned time frame.

At the moment, a 10-days self-quarantine is obligatory after arrival to Poland if you are using a plane, coach or train (public transport). You don’t need to self-isolate if you are arriving with a means of private transport (by car/van up to 9 people).

On the 11th of January, Polish Primeminister announced that those restrictions will be prolonged until the 31 of January (before, it was said that only until the 17th).

💉The good news is that if you had a Sars_Cov_2 Vaccine confirmation (a document/vaccine passport), you don’t need to self-isolate even when entering Poland via plane. 

*Our clinics are accepting international Patients and we will do our best to be flexible in rebooking the procedures if your flights will be cancelled or changed.

Please note that starting from the 1st of January 2021 England is no longer an EU member. Now, passengers from the UK needs to have a valid passport.

People and citizens of the countries that are not members of the EU, EFTA, EEA, Swiss Confederation,  will need to stay in the 10-day obligatory-quarantine –  only with the valid COVID19 vaccine confirmation, there is no need for the self-isolation.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Starting from the Saturday the 4th of October 4:00 AM patients travelling from Poland to the UK will need to self-isolate. Please read more on https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-54376357

covid medical travel eurotreatmed updateTo maintain the high safety level, we kindly ask all our International Patients, to perform a test against the COVID-19 before flying to Poland. It will raise the comfort and reduce the risk of cancelling the procedure due to the infection.

Before the procedures which require hospitalization, in some cases, we may perform the tests again, here in Poland. Please note, that for your and our medical staff safety, it is not possible to perform the operation when there is an ongoing coronavirus infection.  We will inform you if this policy changes.

If due to the safety measures, there is a need to perform the genetic coronavirus tests (throat and nose smear), you will be kindly asked to pay for it additionally. We hope for your understanding. Before the orthopaedic procedures, we perform the antigen COVID19 test which is included in the procedure price.

If your COVID19 genetic test result would be positive, we will kindly ask you to follow the SANEPID (Sanitary and Epidemiological Station) recommendations. It may include staying for a quarantine (self-isolation). Additional costs caused by the infections are not covered by the clinic of planned treatment and are not part of your medical travel package. If you require the coronavirus treatment or self-isolation, please note that those costs need to be covered by yourself.

Medical Travel Recommendations:

  • If you are an EU citizen, we would highly recommend bringing your European Health Insurance Card with you – it allows you to receive state-funded treatment in case of an infection.
  • After the Brexit, the EHIC is still valid in European countries.
  • Also, to avoid additional costs, we would recommend buying additional travel insurance which covers the costs connected with flights cancellations, obligatory self-isolation and necessary treatment if you are diagnosed with the COVID-19.
  • We kindly ask our Patients to keep the distance of 2 metres on the airports when possible, wear face-masks in the aircraft, use the hand-disinfectant and follow the current instructions.

We believe, that adhering to the safety rules, we could all take a step to getting over the global pandemic, and to bringing life back to normal again.

We hope for your understanding. If you have any questions regarding the COVID-19 situation in Poland, and how it may influence your planned treatment in Poland, please do not hesitate to contact us or your clinic directly. 

Best wishes,

The EuroTreatMed Team

Passengers arriving by ship, plane or train will have to take a test up to 3 days before departure and provide evidence of a negative result before they travel. When you arrive in England, you must travel directly to the place you are staying and not leave until 10 days have passed since you were last in a non-exempt country, territory or island. This is known as ‘self-isolating’. Similar rules apply in relation to ScotlandWales and Northern Ireland.
