New conditions for entering Turkey in connection with changes in the sanitary and epidemic situation in the country for all foreign citizens will take effect from June 4, 2021, the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine reported.
“Now, to cross the Turkish border, tourists must present a negative PCR test, made no more than 72 hours before crossing the border, or a quick antigen test made within the last 48 hours,” the ministry’s press service said.
At the same time, if a passenger traveling to Turkey presents a document issued by the official authorities of the respective country, which indicates that he was vaccinated at least 14 days before arriving in Turkey or that they have recovered from the disease in the last six months, PCR test submission and quarantine compliance are not required.
“This means that the abolition of the need for a PCR test, which was introduced from May 15, 2021, for persons arriving in Turkey by land, air or sea from Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, Japan, Great Britain, Latvia, Luxembourg, Ukraine and Estonia, is temporarily suspended and will operate until June 3, inclusively,” the Ministry of Culture said.
Earlier it was reported that from June 1, Turkey returned the requirement for Ukrainian citizens to enter the country with a negative PCR test.
