Passengers travelling from Bangladesh will have to submit a negative RT-PCR test result taken within 72 hours before their arrival to Turkey

The entry of air passengers travelling from Bangladesh to Turkey resumed on Saturday, according to the Turkish Embassy in Dhaka. 

Now the passengers will be able to board flights of Turkish Airlines, among other airline companies, from Bangladesh to Turkey. 

Passengers travelling from Bangladesh will have to submit a negative RT-PCR test result taken within 72 hours before their arrival to Turkey. 

If people, travelling from Bangladesh or those who have been in the country for the last 14 days, can prove that they were vaccinated with a minimum of two doses of vaccines, authorized either from the World Health Organization (WHO) or Turkey and 14 days have passed since the application of the last dose, will be exempted from quarantine during entry.

Those who cannot prove their vaccination status or have not passed 14 days since the application of the last vaccine dose will need to quarantine at their residences or addresses after entering Turkey. 

They will get RT-PCR tested on the 10th day; if the test result comes negative, they will be allowed to move. 

If the result comes positive, individuals will have to follow the instructions published by the General Directorate of Public Health under the Ministry of Health of Turkey. 

Untested individuals will have to stay till their 14th day in quarantine. 

However, passengers under 12 years of age will be exempted from submitting RT-PCR test results and vaccination certificates. 

Flight-ship crew, seafarers - identified as essential workers and truck drivers - will also be exempted from submitting RT-PCR test results and vaccination certificates.

Earlier on June 28, Turkey halted flights and direct travel from Bangladesh, Brazil, South Africa, India, Nepal and Sri Lanka due to new variants of the Covid-19.
