Covid-19 Situation in Turkey
As of June 1, 2022, almost all of the measures have been canceled. This means:
- There is no requirement of vaccination certificate and/or PCR or antigen tests before entering Türkiye.
- Wearing a mask on international flights to Türkiye is at the passenger’s discretion.
- Mask requirements on international flights from Türkiye depend upon the regulations set by the destination country.
Please note that wearing a mask is only mandatory in hospitals. We encourage you to carry your masks with you in case you don’t feel comfortable. Many Turkish citizens are still wearing masks while in public. Please consult your airline’s website before your travel for any updates on Covid-19 measures. Should the Covid-19 situation change, the necessary precautions will be taken both in public areas as at the congress venue.
Safety in Antalya
Antalya, being the tourism capital of Türkiye and the region, is one of the safest travel destinations in the world. Many travelers comment on the friendliness and hospitality of the Turkish people. Türkiye is not only friendly, it is, in many ways, as safe as North America and Western Europe with one of the lowest police-recorded offences (criminal acts) rates in Europe.
