Will corona kill my plans? Travel to Poland

23 Apr 2020 #1
Hey there - I hope you all are well and healthy! I have a trip planned for later this year, late September into early Octpber. I'm planning to travel to France & Poland, from the US. What are we thinking? Should I start thinking of canceling this trip? Or still too early to panic? I'm not normally indecisive, but hoping for a consensus opinion to help make my decision. I really, really want to take this trip. Thanks for your help!

Should I start thinking of canceling this trip?

Yes. It's highly unlikely such a trip would be possible.

As Jon says, better to cancel. There's no way of knowing what the situation will be in September. Even if restrictions are lifted, they can be reimposed again at any time if the virus starts to spread again. You might make it to Poland but it won't be much fun if everything is closed and you're stuck in a hotel in quarantine. If you're coming to Europe from America, that's a trip of a lifetime for many and you want to enjoy it. Better to move your trip to next year.

Actually, in my book, countries like Poland (like my own country in its current form that develop) are now more attractive then countries with seas solely. Poland`s mountains are full of negative ions that rising level of body immunity what is very important in time of Corona.

The peak of the first wave is most likely to be in the middle of the summer in Poland, probably late June time

Actually, in most of Europe.

Really, Mr/Ms 'Real' Pole?? You don't seem to follow the Polish news. According to the Minister for Health, Szumowski, speaking yesterday, the peak will be in the Autumn anytime between September and November. Of course he's talking rubbish as usual, but it's official rubbish. Were did you get your information from?

I also read that but seems its not true.The ACW sent me this
LOT Polish Airlines has advised the Embassy that they will run one more charter flight from Warsaw to Chicago on Sunday, May 3,at 4:40PM. This flight is confirmed and may be your last option for a direct flight from Poland to the United States before commercial flights resume. Tickets for this flight will be booked directly with LOT. If you would like to purchase a ticket for this flight, please fill out this form for EACH traveler (including small children). This is a new form specifically for this flight. Please fill out the form, even if you have previously filled out a different form, and ensure that all information is entered correctly, especially your contact information. By providing this information to us, you consent to our providing it to LOT Airlines for the purpose of facilitating your return to the United States. The Embassy will confirm your eligibility and forward your information to LOT. LOT will contact you by phone or e-mail to book your ticket. You must diligently monitor both your incoming calls and e-mail messages in order to book a seat on this flight. The airline may call at any time, including early morning or late evening, in order to arrange booking. This is not a U.S. government operated or funded flight. Availability and cancellations are controlled by LOT. At this time, the United States government has no plans to charter an evacuation flight out of Poland.

Looking at Warsaw Airport website Arrivals/Departures,they are still operating.In fact they had a flight from Chicago and one going back this afternoon.

Just booked a group flight round trip for 23 people on LOT for end of July and first week of August. Don't buy into the paranoia about travel. Poland will be open, and it is pretty easy to see its one of the safest places to travel to. Once the election is over, probably on John Paul II birthday May 17, another miracle will happen and everything will be declared safe. (insert eyes rolling here)

I even plan to stay here longer until it clears in States.Wife sending me parcels of things I need,hopefully getting one today or Monday.

What I am upset is that 2nd quarter property taxes over there are due as usual 1st of May with 11 day extension without interest like the past and some towns websites dont accept payments from out of country.Freaking CRIMINALS.

The figures being released for infection here are not believed to be accurate PolAm. Who knows what the true rate of infection is. But they will have to ease off a bit on the border restrictions at some point.
