This summer, UK travellers could be allowed to travel to Turkey as soon as the Covid-19 pandemic permits international travel from Britain.
With more than 2.5 million of British Citizens heading to Turkey each year for a holiday, as soon as signs permit, the country is hoping to welcome them back with open arms from the 17th May.
Turkey’s vaccination programme has seen 10 million locals receive the jab, with those working in hotels and tourist facilities given priority.
Turkey will not require a vaccine certificate and the current PCR test proof requirement to enter Turkey is yet to be reviewed.
Culture and tourism minister Mehmet Nuri Ersoy said: “We are looking forward to welcoming British tourists with open arms, as we did safely last summer. We have world-class border processes in place for ensuring travel will be low-risk throughout Turkey.”
“We will not require vaccination passports from international travellers when entering the country.”
Ersoy said: “We are confident that the successful vaccination programmes ongoing in both the UK and Turkey will ensure this season is even safer than last year. More than 10 million vaccinations have been given in Turkey so far.”
