Turkey has announced that fully vaccinated travellers from India will no longer be required to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine upon arrival.
Note that those who are fully vaccinated with a WHO-approved or the Turkish Government approved vaccine 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. Indians who are vaccinated with COVISHIELD will also be allowed to travel to Turkey.
Fully vaccinated travellers are required to submit their negative RT-PCR test report taken 72 hours before departure. Non-vaccinated travellers are required to undergo mandatory quarantine for 10 days in a hotel or a location mentioned in the declaration.
