Türkiye Removed All Covid-19 Related Travel Restrictions


As of June 1, 2022, travelers visiting Türkiye no longer need to present a negative COVID-19 test result and vaccination certificate. There is no quarantine as well.

The country’s Interior Ministry announced that polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests would not be asked from visitors arriving from abroad starting. 

The ministry said rules and measures against the pandemic were being determined based on “global developments” over the course of the pandemic, citing an update on restrictions imposed on arrivals by land, sea, and air on March 3, 2022.

Back then, Turkey had lifted the quarantine rule for arrivals from abroad if they had PCR tests or recovered from the disease within the past six months or got vaccinated with at least two doses of COVID-19 vaccines if they arrived on flights. No test results or vaccine/recovery documents were asked from land and sea travelers.

Earlier this week, Turkey removed one of the two remaining protective mask mandates, allowing citizens to board mass transit without masks while they will remain compulsory for hospitals.

Travelers flying on domestic routes are no longer required to wear a face mask. For international flights, the obligation to use masks varies according to the decisions of the relevant country authorities.

It is only required to wear a mask while visiting a hospital in Türkiye.
