🚨 Travel Advice for Turkey

Moderate restrictions

for travel
International travel to Turkey is permitted. It is necessary to comply with requirements to ensure entry is allowed.

Open with conditions

If another country has been visited in the previous 14 days that is on the suspended list, travelers are subject to further testing and quarantine requirements, regardless of vaccination status. The list of high-risk countries, quarantine duration, and test dates can be found at https://www.turkishairlines.com/en-us/announcements/coronavirus-outbreak/turkey-travel-rules/

Vaccinations and vaccinated travel

Travelers who present a valid international certificate for full vaccination against COVID-19, with the use of an approved vaccine, are exempt from pre-departure testing requirements.
The final dose must have been administered at least 14 days before departure. All vaccines approved by the World Health Organization are accepted. Further information on vaccinations can be found at https://www.visasturkey.com/vaccinations-for-turkey/

Test/medical certificate required

Proof of a negative PCR test, taken within the previous 72 hours, must be provided on departure. Alternatively, a negative rapid antigen test can be provided, taken within 48 hours of departure.
Those who have recently recovered from COVID-19 are exempt from testing requirements and may provide proof of a positive antigen or PCR test, taken at least 14 days and not more than 180 days of departure.

Other medical measures

All travelers are subject to medical evaluation on arrival. Passengers showing symptoms of being unwell will undergo a PCR test at the airport. If a positive result is returned, self-quarantine at a government facility will be required at the traveler's expense.

We recommend keeping up to date with official local guidelines. A map of the regions and risk levels can be found in Turkish at https://covid19.saglik.gov.tr/

Use of masks

Face masks are required in public spaces, enclosed environments, and while on public transport.

Public transport

Public transportation is operating as usual for foreign travelers. Turkish citizens and residents must have a 'travel permit' which can be applied for at https://www.turkiye.gov.tr/
Turkish citizens and residents must also download the 'Hayat Eve Sigar' (HES) application which will generate a code for domestic and international flights, train, and ferry travel. The HES code may also be requested when checking in to accommodation or when entering public places. This does not apply to foreign travelers.

Restaurants

Restaurants are open as usual.

Bars

Bars are open as usual.

Nightclubs

Nightclubs remain closed to limit the rate of transmission.

Shops

Shops and services are open with adapted safety measures in place, such as the use of hand sanitizer and social distancing.

On return

Vaccinations and vaccinated travel

Travelers who present a valid international certificate for full vaccination against COVID-19, with the use of an approved vaccine, do not require an essential reason to enter and are exempt from quarantine requirements.
Vaccinated travelers must still provide a pre-departure test and may be randomly selected to be tested on arrival. Travelers are also required to have a suitable quarantine plan in place for 14 days as a precaution, even when seeking the fully vaccinated exemption.
Proof of vaccination must be uploaded on the ArriveCAN application. The final dose must have been administered at least 15 days before departure and supporting documentation must be in English, French, or with a certified translation.

Test/medical certificate required

Proof of a negative test result, taken within the previous 72 hours, must be provided on departure.
