Turkey is taking precautions for International travel where it states that it requires a negative covid-19 test result certificate for passengers to enter the country until March.
Health minister of Turkey Fahrettin Koca said in a tweet that travelers who are visiting Turkey need to present a Negative Covid-19 test result from a PCR test that is taken 72 hours before boarding the flight. Previously, this test was not required.
The new rule will be applied to all modes of transport to reach Turkey, such as air, land, and sea arrivals and this rule is applicable starting Wednesday.
Travelers visiting Turkey without an RT-PCR test would be quarantined at their destination.
Travelers arriving from the UK, Denmark, and South Africa for the past 10 days would have to show a negative RT-PCR test and need to mandatorily quarantine for at least 7 days until the second test.
This comes after the fact that Turkey has suffered the most and it is one of the worst hit nations in the world with an average of 20,000 confirmed Covid-19 cases and a total death toll of around 19,731 according to statistics.
