Turkey, officially the Republic of Türkiye has removed all entry requirements for visitors and expects to receive the highest number of Indian tourists ever this year, said the Turkiye Tourism Board on Monday.
It is worth noting that earlier, Indian travellers who wish to enter Turkey were required to provide either a vaccination certificate or a negative RT-PCR test report.
Now, Indian travellers will no longer have to produce certification of coronavirus vaccination, recovery from the Covid-19, or a negative RT-PCR test result.
With both Indigo and Turkish Airlines resuming direct international flights to Turkiye, the country is expecting to welcome the highest-ever number of Indian tourists this year, said a statement issued by Turkiye Tourism Board.
Tourism in Turkey has reached a new high!
Turkey’s tourist industry, which reached about USD 25 billion in revenue last year and has grown by 103% since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, is likely to hit a new record in 2022.
According to the Turkiye Tourism Board, the country emerged as one of the top destinations for Free Independent Travelers (FIT) and Meeting, Incentive Travel, Conferences, and Events (MICE) travellers from across the world last year, with over 30 million foreign visitors expected in 2021.
