Poland abolishes control on the border with Slovakia

Mar 1, 2024

The Polish Interior Ministry has decided to cancel the temporary control on the border with Slovakia, which was introduced in early October.

This was reported by RMF24.

The current control measures will last until midnight on March 2.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs explained this decision by stabilizing the migration situation on the so-called "Balkan route" and the disappearance of the threat of illegal migration on the Polish-Slovak section of the state border, the ministry said.


"Within the framework of cross-border cooperation, the migration situation will be constantly monitored, and control measures at the border may be resumed in case of an increased threat. Border guards will continue to carry out internal control aimed at combating illegal migration on the main routes and in other selected places," the agency added.

From October 4 to March 2, the Polish-Slovak border can be crossed only at designated points. Temporary border controls are in place there, and people entering Poland are checked selectively. It is necessary to have a travel document with you - a license or passport.
