Traveling to Turkey Becomes Even Easier

News Turkey is one of the first countries that opened its borders for foreign guests and started accepting travelers already in June 2020. Thanks to this, many tourists from Europe and the Middle East were able to enjoy their summer vacations at hotels in Antalya, Kemer, Istanbul, and other cities. The country is also one of the first destinations that received the Safe Travels stamp by WTTC. This label once again proves that Turkey is considered a safe destination this summer.

Besides that, Turkey was one of the first countries that joined the Safe Tourism Certification initiative. The airplane is one of the major potential sources of infection, and this is the reason why Istanbul Airport decided to work closely with ACI (Airports Council International) to become safe for tourists. Consequently, it will be the first airport with the Airport Health Accreditation.

Starting from August 4, Germany lifted all travel restrictions for four coastal provinces in Turkey. Nowadays, German tourists can stay at hotels in Izmir, Antalya, Aydin, and Mugla. Germany has only one rule – tourists need to present a negative coronavirus test taken in less than 48 hours before the arrival back home. Russia re-launched flights to Turkey in August 2020.

Flights with the UK resumed significantly earlier – in June 2020. As British citizens do not need a visa to enter Turkey for a period of up to 90 days, this is a very popular destination for them. What about travelers from another continent? Can tourists from the United States enter this country? Yes, they can and do not need to spend 14 days in quarantine. US citizens do not need to have a fresh Covid-19 test with a negative result. The test is mandatory only if a passenger has symptoms of the disease. Currently, there several international flights from Istanbul to U.S. cities like New York, Miami, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Houston, and Atlanta.

To protect oneself from possible risks, Turkish officials encourage people to purchase travel instruction. The price starts at 15 euro. Finally, it is important to mention that face masks are mandatory in public places across the country. Upon arrival, all tourists pass a brief checkup, during which all passengers are tested for coronavirus. People suspected of having COVID -19 are subject to a 14-day self-insolation.
