From June 1, tourists are no longer required to present negative results of either a PCR test or a rapid antigen test to enter Turkey.
According to media reports, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Turkey sent a circular “On measures to enter the country” to the authorities of 81 regions.
According to the document, from June 1, to enter Turkey through all border points (land, air, sea, and rail), it is no longer required to present either a report of a negative PCR test made a maximum of 72 hours before entry or a negative result of a rapid test for antigen held within a maximum of 48 hours before entry.
According to the document, the recent decrease in the incidence of COVID-19, as well as the fact that the pandemic has ceased to pose a threat to public health, has allowed the easing of the requirements for entry into the country.
Recall that Italy also canceled all anti-covid restrictions for entering the country, and Spain allowed the entry of unvaccinated tourists. Earlier, nine other countries eased entry requirements by abolishing the presentation of a negative PCR test result, among them Israel, Indonesia, Morocco, Austria, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Armenia, and Kyrgyzstan.
