The authorities of the Republic of Turkey have eased a number of restrictions imposed on those entering the country in connection with the coronavirus pandemic. In particular, from June 1, Russians who have completed a full course of vaccination against coronavirus 14 days before the trip no longer need to provide a PCR test when entering the country.
For those who have not yet been vaccinated, there is still a requirement for a negative PCR test done no more than 72 hours before entering the country, however, an antigen test (not to be confused with an antibody test) taken 48 hours before entering the country was included as an alternative …
In addition, the Turkish authorities reserve the right to conduct selective PCR testing of passengers upon entry into the country. This will also apply to those traveling in transit to a third country. In case of a positive result, passengers will be directed to a medical facility.
At the same time, Turkey maintains mandatory PCR test requirements for arrivals from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Brazil, South Africa, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, as well as those who are believed to have visited these countries in the past 14 days. In addition, these passengers will be sent to mandatory quarantine at certified facilities.
Passengers arriving from the UK, Iran, Egypt and Singapore will be required to present a negative PCR test done no later than 72 hours prior to entry.
In addition, Turkey recalled that all passengers are required to wear masks at airports and during the flight. It is also necessary to fill in the “information form for passengers”. HES code for domestic flights is not required for foreign citizens.
Only important. For the pros only.
