Two Week Closure of Korczowa/Krakovets Polish Border Crossing Starting Monday, July 18

Location: Ukraine 

Event: According to Polish Border Guard officials, passenger vehicles traveling west to Poland from Ukraine will not be allowed entry at the Korczowa/Krakovets for approximately two weeks beginning Monday, July 18 due to construction.  We recommend that passenger vehicles use the Medyka border crossing point to transit into Poland from Ukraine. Passenger vehicle and truck traffic traveling into Ukraine from Poland via Korczowa/Krakovets will not be affected. Korczowa/Krakovets will remain inaccessible to pedestrians. 

The security situation throughout Ukraine continues to be violent and unpredictable due to ongoing military attacks by Russia, with active fighting in country and uncertain safety conditions.  The U.S. Embassy urges U.S. citizens not to enter Ukraine and those in Ukraine to depart immediately using privately available ground transportation options if it is safe to do so.  Avoid large gatherings and organized events as they may serve as Russian military targets anywhere in Ukraine, including its western regions.
