Turkey has announced that fully vaccinated travellers from India are no longer required to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine.

The vaccines that have been approved by WHO or the Turkish Government are covered under this exemption. In addition to WHO-approved vaccines, the vaccines approved by the Turkish Government are Pzifer Biontech, Sputnik V and Sinovac.

For the same, a traveller must have taken the second dose (if Johnson & Johnson one dose is sufficient) at least 14 days prior to the date of travel. Indian travellers vaccinated with Covishield will also be allowed to travel to Turkey.

The fully vaccinated visitors are required to submit their negative PCR test report taken 72 hours before departure.

Non-vaccinated travellers are required to undergo mandatory quarantine for ten days in a hotel or a location mentioned in the declaration.

Travellers under the age of 12 will be exempted from PCR test and vaccination certificate application on entry.
