Michel Barnier was slated to meet with Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki before noon.
The two politicians were scheduled to give a joint news conference later in the day.
Britain was supposed to leave the bloc this Friday, March 29, but EU leaders meeting in Brussels last week agreed to delay Brexit.
The UK's departure will be postponed to May 22 if the British parliament approves a withdrawal agreement this week.
If UK lawmakers fail to back the deal, Britain will have until April 12 to suggest an alternative to EU leaders or leave without a deal.
A Polish deputy foreign minister said on Thursday that a no-deal Brexit would "cause enormous damage to everyone.”
