Current COVID-19 regulations for Turkey

Current status from August 17, 2021

Incoming tourists aged six and over must present one of the following documents upon entry:

• Result of a negative PCR test (not older than 72 hours)

• Result of an antigen test (not older than 48 hours before arrival)

• Official proof of a complete vaccination (at least 14 days before arrival)

• Official documentation of a recovery from a COVID-19 infection (not older than 6 months)

There is no quarantine requirement when entering Turkey.

You will need to apply online for a HES code.

The HES code is required in Turkey not only for air travel, but also for public transport and entering airports, banks, restaurants, historical sites, etc.

The HES code was introduced by the Turkish Ministry of Health to curb the course and the infection rate of COVID -19.

To create your HES code, please follow the link
