Turkey Reopens for International Tourists

The Republic of Turkey has introduced the ‘Safe Tourism Certification Program’. This certificate, issued under the Ministry of Culture and Tourism’s guidance, contains a set of measures including transportation, accommodation, health condition of employees of the facilities and passengers. Granted by international certification institutions, this will document the fulfillment of a high level of health and hygiene requirements at airline companies, airports, and other transportation, accommodation, and food & beverage facilities. This way, any Indian traveler can check which hotels, restaurants & other facilities in Turkey have this ‘Safe Tourism Certificate’ and choose for a safe travel experience.

Body temperature checks of passengers will be checked at airports upon arrival. Any passenger having a temperature higher than 37.8C(100.4 Fahrenheit) or showing any other symptoms of Covid-19 will be tested free of charge. If the test result is positive, the passenger will be directed to the hospital. All transit passengers will go through the same procedure as well. If the test result is negative, the passenger can continue with his/her itinerary.

No Indian passenger will be deported or be kept in quarantine due to the test result

Qualified health staff and well-equipped transfer vehicles will be ready at the airport for transportation to the health institutions if passenger tests positive. The patient will be transferred immediately to the nearest health institution and his/her treatment will start. The government will not facilitate any treatment without the consent of the individual.

Treatment costs will be covered by his/her health insurance which is also valid in Turkey. Indian travelers are advised to buy medical insurance to cover COVID 19 treatment before arriving in Turkey. Turkey is planning to re-start scheduled flights between India and Turkey as of 10 July 2020. Consent of the Government of India is being awaited. Tourism and international flights that were suspended in Turkey since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic resumed from 15th June 2020.
