What is the Turkey Entrance Form

The Turkey Entrance Form is a simple online travel declaration that must be completed by every person who plans to visit Turkey during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Turkey authorities decided to implement the online Passenger Locator Form in March of 2021 to help keep track of any possible Covid-19 cases within the country and add an additional safety layer.

The Turkey Entrance Form must be completed by all travellers within 72 hours (not earlier!) of their planned arrival in Turkey and submitted online.

Following completion of the Turkey Passenger Locator Form, each traveller receives their unique QR code and PDF confirmation onto their email inbox.

Fill out the Turkey Entrance Form online and receive your PDF confirmation via email before departure to Turkey to ensure smooth border proceedings.

Who needs to complete it

The Turkey Entrance Form is required to be completed by every incoming visitor. If you plan on visiting Turkey, you must fill out the online Passenger Locator Form and receive a PDF confirmation of doing so.

Upon your arrival at the Turkish border, appropriate officials will be checking your confirmation of completing the Entrance Form and your QR code.

When should I fill the Turkey Entrance Form out

The Turkey Entrance Form or the Turkey Passenger Locator Form must be completed within 72 hours of your planned visit to Turkey.

What does ‘within’ means? It means that travellers cannot and should not complete their Turkey Entrance Forms earlier than 72 hours of arrival.

Keeping with this requirement ensures the Turkish Government that the data you provide will be relevant and up-to-date.
