Turkey to welcome UK tourist this summer without being vaccinated

TURKEY SAYS ‘NO VACCINES NECESSARY’ FOR BRITISH HOLIDAYMAKERS

Turkey is set to welcome visitors this summer without requiring evidence of vaccination, the tourism minister has said. British travellers are unlikely to need to take PCR tests before arrival due to the success of the UK’s vaccine programme.

Mehmet Nuri Ersoy, minister of culture and tourism, said: “We will not require vaccination passports from international travellers when entering the country.

Mr Ersoy said: “We have world-class border processes in place for ensuring travel will be low-risk throughout Turkey.

“We are working with the British authorities to ensure these necessary processes are world class and as up to date as possible.

“We will not require vaccination passports from international travellers when entering the country.”

Mr Ersoy added: “I expect there will be no such requirement from British visitors as the UK Government is rapidly and impressively rolling out the vaccination programme for the whole nation, and a significant portion of the population will be vaccinated by early summer.”

He said employees at hotels and other tourist facilities in Turkey will be prioritised for Covi-19 jabs before the summer season.

Leisure travel is currently banned for people living in the UK, but the rule could be relaxed for those in England from May 17.
