As Este Medica we continue to welcome and treat our patients from all around the world during the hard times of the pandemic, just as we did before. We are fully aware that there are different restrictions regarding travel during the pandemic. Therefore, we believe it is our duty to answer some of the questions people have in their minds about travel to Turkey, accomodation and treatment regulations.
- From where the patients can fly to Turkey?
Excluding Brazil, United Kingdom, Denmark and South Africa, there are flights from all over the world, coming into Turkey.
- Is there a quarantine restriction on arrival?
If you haven’t been to Brazil, UK, Denmark or South Africa, 10 days prior to your arrival to Turkey, you don’t need to quarantine.
- Which documents are needed before arriving in Turkey?
Before boarding on a flight to Turkey, you need a negative PCR test, which is taken maximum of 72 hours before the flight. In addition to the PCR test result, you also need to fill the form on this website, https://register.health.gov.tr 72 hours before you board on your flight to declare your health information.
- What do you need to know about accomodation in Turkey?
You can check in at any hotel, B&B or accommodation arrangement with the negative PCR test you used to get on your flight. The accommodation amenities like breakfast, lunch, dinner, pool, Turkish bath etc may vary depending on your accommodation choice. In Turkey, every city has different restrictions, depending on the active Covid-19 cases in the city. In Istanbul, there is a weekend curfew and weekday curfew after 7 PM. Tourists with foreign passports are not required to follow these regulations, as long as they carry the passports on them at all times.
- How to enter shopping malls and restaurants in Turkey?
Just as Turkish citizens do, you can download the HES app and register with your passport number. While entering these places, you’ll need to open the app and scan your personal code.
If you need to document your medical situation before boarding on a flight to Turkey, we can email you a document that states you will have a hair transplant operation at Este Medica. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our clinic in the heart of Istanbul and give you the hair of your dreams!
