The number of refusals to citizens of Ukraine to enter Poland in 2019 amounted to 58.5 thousand - this is 25% more than the previous year (then it was 46.7 thousand). The analytical center "Europe without barriers" with reference to statistics from the Polish Border Service and data from our own research reports this information.
The vast majority of failures were issued at the land border. When traveling by plane, the probability of rejection is much less, analysts say.
The main reasons for the refusals are the unconfirmed purpose of the trip (34,900) and lack of funds (12,800).
Monitoring of migration indicators, such as refusals of entry, is part of the EU visa-free suspension mechanism.
