Turkey has announced that no vaccination certificates will be required for international travellers entering the country. For the time being, only a negative PCR test result will need to be presented.
To further reassure visitors to Turkey, a priority vaccination program is already underway for employees at hotels and other tourist facilities for the forthcoming tourism season. A total of 20,775,790 vaccination doses have been administered in Turkey as of now.
In addition, tourists visiting Turkey are offered a special insurance package, from just EUR 15 (USD 18.16), which covers Covid-19 related expenses such as treatment, medication and emergency care costs that may be incurred if visitors are taken to a state-owned or private hospital during their stay in Turkey.
The Covid-19 Accommodation Support Insurance also guarantees to cover any extra accommodation expenses that may be necessary during the trip, following the issuance of a medical report requiring them to be kept under supervision in a hotel.
Two and a half million British tourists visited Turkey in 2019, with visitors staying in popular areas including Istanbul, Bodrum, Dalaman and Izmir.
