FORM FOR ENTRY TO TURKEY: COVID-19 ENTRANCE REQUIREMENT
All travelers must complete a Form for Entry to Turkey. This new COVID-19 requirement applies to everyone entering Turkey from overseas.
The entrance form to Turkey is part of a package of COVID-19 health requirements, all of which are designed to promote safe travel during the pandemic.
Travelers should submit the Form for Entry to Turkey online before departure. They can do so when applying for their Turkish eVisa or by clicking the link below.
WHAT IS THE COVID-19 FORM FOR ENTRY TO TURKEY?
The entrance form to Turkey has been introduced to minimize the spread of coronavirus in Turkey.
Using the form, visitors can be reached easily if they come into contact with a positive COVID-19 case, or test positive for COVID-19 themselves.
For example, an airline passenger who was seated near someone who later tests positive can be notified and informed about the steps they should take.
Similar contact forms are being introduced by several countries around the world to maintain open borders and keep travelers safe.
HOW TO SUBMIT THE FORM FOR ENTRY TO TURKEY
All travelers arriving in Turkey from overseas should follow the 3 steps below:
- Fill out the online form before departure
- Download the completed form on a mobile device or print a copy
- Present the digital or paper form to border officials on arrival
Visitors who are eligible for the Turkey eVisa can submit the form together with their online visa application.
INFORMATION REQUIRED TO REGISTER
It’s quick and easy to fill out the Covid form for entry to Turkey. Passengers are asked to provide the following details:
- Full name
- Telephone number
- Passport information
- Arrival and departure dates
- Mode of transport
- Accommodation address
- Countries visited in the last 10 days
Applicants should check that all the information is accurate before submitting the form. Travelers may face issues at the border if their form contains incorrect details.
WHEN SHOULD I SUBMIT THE FORM FOR ENTRY TO TURKEY?
Passengers must submit the form at least 4 days before traveling. This is to ensure the information provided remains accurate and relevant.
A new entrance form must be completed before each trip to Turkey.
Travelers should apply for the entrance form electronically before departure. Foreign visitors who arrive at the Turkish border without having completed the form may face sanctions and will not be able to enter the country.
TRAVEL TO TURKEY WITH THE COVID-19 ENTRANCE FORM
After submitting the application, a QR code, HES code, and the form are generated.
