On the border

There are no special legal provisions or customs which, if not observed, may lead to conflict situations. Since 1st May 2004 Poles have been able to enter Slovakia on the basis of a passport or ID card.

The principle of free movement of persons means that access can be denied only when it poses a threat to internal security of the state (e.g. terrorism) or violates basic rules of social intercourse.

Since 1st May 2004 there have been no customs borders between countries of the European Union and Poland. Tourists travelling to countries of the EU are not subject to any limitations as regards the amount of goods bought and transported, provided they are intended for personal use and may not be resold. The term ‘for personal use’ means that the goods transported can also be used as presents, yet their sale is tantamount to infringement of the law and may lead to confiscation and additional penalty. The vehicle used for transporting the goods may also be confiscated.

For example, the goods transported are considered as intended for personal use, if they do not exceed the established limits:
- 800 cigarettes
- 200 cigars
- 1 kg of tobacco
- 10 litres of spirits
- 20 litres of fortified wine (e.g. sherry or port)
- 90 litres of wine (of which, a maximum of 60 litres of sparkling wine)
- 110 litres of beer.

According to the general principle, people under the age of 17 may not transport any alcohol or tobacco products.

Since accession of Poland to the EU it has not been possible for Polish tourists returning to Poland to apply for a refund of VAT on goods purchased in the EU countries.


Polish citizens before travelling to Slovakia should apply for European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) in National Health Fund. The card entitled a citizen to obtain medical treatment in Slovakia under the same scheme as Slovak citizens. But it is also recommended that travelers should also covered themselves for unexpected cost with travel insurance.
