Islamabad, June 02, 2021 (PPI-OT):Following the announcement on 1 June 2021 of new regulations by the Turkish authorities imposing a quarantine of 14 days on passengers arriving from Pakistan, the Pakistan Embassy has been in touch with the Turkish side about this decision. Says a press release received here from Ankara. As per the decision of the Turkish authorities, fully vaccinated persons would still need to do a mandatory quarantine. It is also mandatory for those incoming passengers holding a valid Turkish residence card, including students. Pakistani nationals who are travelling for medical purposes can be exempted from this mandatory quarantine on case to case basis; however they must possess a valid PCR test, and will undergo quarantine at their hospitals.
Passengers travelling from Pakistan to Turkey are advised to re-assess their travel plans in light of these new travel regulations announced by the Turkish authorities. Moreover, all Pakistanis are once again encouraged to follow the host government guidelines and health advisories. Pakistanis are requested to use the emergency helpline numbers and email addresses available at the Embassy’s website https://pakembassyankara.com and bring to its notice any problems being faced by them so that they may be taken up appropriately. The Embassy and the Consulate General would endeavour to help within the purview of the host government rules and regulations.
