Vaccines and safety in Poland
Vaccines and local diseases
No vaccine is required for visitors. The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) certifies your rights to health insurance in Europe. During a temporary stay in a Member State of the European Union, it allows you to benefit from the medically necessary care. It is recommended that you take out additional insurance.
Security in Poland
As a general rule, Poland is a safe destination when the traveller follows basic safety guidelines. Before you leave, consider consulting the recommendations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Health insurance and repatriation in Poland
Why take international health insurance when travelling or living in Poland? Simply because health spending quickly reaches very high amounts abroad. In addition, the repatriation guarantee is an essential criterion. In the event of a serious accident it is sometimes necessary to carry out a medicalized repatriation to the nearest medical centre or to the country of residence. Depending on where you are at the time of the accident, and depending on the medical prognosis, it may be necessary to Charter a helicopter or a medicalized aircraft.
