Can I go on holiday to Turkey?

Turkey remains on the red list, meaning all travel is banned to the country.

This means Brits will need the following when returning to the UK:

  • A negative test taken pre-arrival
  • A mandatory ten-day quarantine at a government hotel, costing £1,750
  • Two Covid tests, taken on day two and day eight

Double-jabbed Brits will still have to follow the red list rules, as this remains unchanged following the rules that fully vaccinated travellers can avoid quarantine from amber list countries.

What are the travel restrictions for Turkey?

Brits do not need to be vaccinated to travel to Turkey – passengers from the UK only need to have a negative test to enter.

However there are limited direct flights between UK and Turkey due the Foreign Office advising against all but essential travel to the country based on Covid risks.

Turkey has lifted most lockdown restrictions, including all curfews.

Only mandatory masks and social distancing rules remain in the country.

The country is yet to be moved from the red to the amber list but it is hoped it could be moved on the next UK update, which is on July 15.

Here is the full list of countries on the green list, amber list and red list right now.

Popular holiday hotspots such as Malta and Madeira were also added to the green list.
