Culture and Tourism Minister Mehmet Nuri Ersoy met tourism professionals and representatives of the associations established by the foreigners living there at the "Healthy Tourism, Safe City" meeting held in Alanya, Antalya, with the attendance of Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu. Any tourism facility which has more than 50 rooms has to get the certificate, and the minister said that they reached more than a thousand applicants so far and many more are expected.

At this time, there is NO mandatory testing for tourists into Turkey.

However, any passengers showing symptoms including high fever, coughing or respiratory difficulties upon arrival will be will be required to undergo a PCR swab test. In the event that a test returns with a positive result, the traveler will be provided with medical treatment at a facility determined by the Ministry of Health or at a private medical facility in Turkey at the travelers expense.

While being in Turkey it is necessary to wear face mask in all big public places: the airport, outside and inside of plane/metro/train/bus/taxi station, banks, city halls, shopping malls, shops, food shops and in some restaurants.

  • On the airport incoming passengers have temperature measured by special termal camera.

  • If go around hotel or beach there is no necessity to wear face masks.
  • Hand sanitizers are on the entrance to every place.
  • Do not share any personal belongings (towels etc.) in common.
  • Drink water from own bottle.

The highest amount of infections is in Istanbul, Ankara, Gaziantep, Konya and Bursa.
