Turkey to require negative COVID-19 test result for travel
ISTANBUL (AP) - Turkey is making arrangements for international travel and is demanding a negative COVID-19 test for passengers to enter the country Monday through March.
Health Minister Fahrettin Koca tweeted a statement Friday that travelers would have to present a negative result of a PCR test conducted in a 72-hour window in order to board international flights en route to Turkey. So far, no tests have been required to travel to Turkey.
The rule would apply to all land and sea arrivals starting Wednesday. Travelers would be quarantined at their destination if they didn't have test results.
Travelers who have traveled from Great Britain, Denmark and South Africa in the last 10 days would have to show a negative test result and go into mandatory quarantine for at least seven days until a second test.
Turkey has one of the worst infection rates in the world, with a weekly average of more than 20,000 confirmed daily infections. The total death toll is 19,371 according to official statistics.
