EIG COVID-19 Update | April 30, 2020

With our mission to uncomplicate the complicated, we’ve always thought of our work in immigration as people-first. Our goal is for these emails to make sense of the changes happening across the world. Please share these updates with your colleagues who may find this information helpful, too.

International Updates

Poland | Beginning Monday, May 4, individuals who work or study near the Polish border in Poland, and also Germany, Lithuania, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic will be able to cross back and forth without a two-week quarantine. For all other foreign nationals entering Poland, a two-week quarantine period is still required.
