    Has anyone travelled to Poland recently from the UK? I am due to arrive in Warsaw on Saturday 15 January 2022 at 11.50hrs.

    This is what the Polish entry requirements state:

    All travellers are required to present a negative result of the COVID-19 test taken within 24 hours before crossing the border, counting from the date of receiving the result, regardless of their means of transport (collective, individual, or crossing the border on foot).

    The BA website says: Vaccinated travelers arriving in Poland must have a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR or antigen test result issued a maximum of 24 hours before arrival in Poland.

    I understand this to mean that if took the test on 13 January, but receive my results after 10.50hrs GMT on 14 January I satisfy their requirements.

    However, the Verify app doesn’t allow for the entry of any tests taken before 14 January.

    Am I in the clear

    Perhaps you need to apply common sense and perform the test few hours before the departure from the comfort of your home?

    As far as the Verifly App is concerned, having tried to use it several times, I am not surprised it throws up this kind of difficulty.

    If you take the test on the 13th you’d be in the odd position of hoping the results didn’t come too quickly, which is the opposite of the normal worry.

    I assume there’s a reason you can’t take the test on the Friday (14 January). A similar thing happened to me (the day before was a Sunday, I was travelling, and the normal test centres were closed, so I had to do a test via video with a lady from the Philippines by webinar.

    I have also encountered someone doing a similar ‘via video’ in the restroom of a hotel. He’d had to check out, the timing meant he had to do the test in the early evening, and so there he was having a conversation and observed test over his mobile phone.

    LaWhore. It appears that you are an antivax troll and you really need to take your views elsewhere. It’s interesting that nearly all of your posts have been reported as inappropriate. That must be a record amongst posters. Just sayin’.Also, do you really have to be so rude to people?

    Agreed. I’ve deleted that post.
