The Turkish government are planning to welcome un-vaccinated Brits or even a negative test to boost British holidaymakers back to the country.

In 2019 more than 2.5m British holidaymakers visited Turkey, and the government will welcome “British tourists with open arms.”

Tourism Minister Mehmet Ersoy said they are “looking forward to welcoming British tourists with open arms.”

Ersoy said, “We have world-class border processes in place for ensuring travel will be low-risk throughout Turkey.

“We are working with the British authorities to ensure these necessary processes are world class and as up to date as possible.

“We will not require vaccination passports from international travellers when entering the country.”

Ersoy added, “I expect there will be no such requirement from British visitors as the UK Government is rapidly and impressively rolling out the vaccination programme for the whole nation, and a significant portion of the population will be vaccinated by early summer.”

Employees across Turkey who work in the hospitality sector will prioristised for coronavirus vaccines, before holidaymakers return.
