Turkey introduces new rules of entry for tourists

2 weeks ago

From June 4, 2021 all foreign nationals will have new conditions for entry into Turkey due to changes in the sanitary-epidemic situation in the country.

Tourists will be required to submit a negative PCR test not more than 72 hours before crossing the border. Or a rapid antigen test made within the last 48 hours.

If a passenger travelling to Turkey presents a document issued by the authorities of the country concerned stating that he/she has been vaccinated at least 14 days prior to arrival in Turkey and/or he/she has been cured from the disease in the last 6 months, PCR test and quarantine test are not required.

This means that the abolition of the requirement for a PCR test, which was introduced from May 15, 2021, will be suspended temporarily and will be valid until June 3 inclusive.
