Planning to charter a yacht in Turkey during Covid? Here’s everything you need to know to get there.
Am I allowed to charter a yacht in Turkey during Covid?
Yes, it is certainly possible to charter a yacht in Turkey during Covid. Turkey is currently allowing entry to arrivals from all destinations, including arrivals for the purposes of a yacht charter.
What documents must I present upon arrival?
Importantly, you must present a negative PCR test to be permitted to charter a yacht in Turkey during Covid. This must be taken within 72 hours prior to your scheduled departure from the country of origin. Additionally, all passengers must complete a “Form for Entry to Turkey” within 72 hours before entry. This is available at https://register.health.gov.
What if I am vaccinated?
Turkey have yet to confirm regulations for entry by persons vaccinated against Covid-19. Therefore, vaccinated and unvaccinated persons are subject to the same regulations.
What if I previously had Covid-19?
Turkey have yet to confirm regulations for entry by persons who have had Covid-19 in the past. Therefore, such persons are subject to the same regulations as all.
What are the regulations surrounding children?
Children aged under 6 years are not required to submit proof of a negative Covid-19 PCR test. They are also not required to complete a “Form for Entry to Turkey”.
Do I need to quarantine upon arrival?
Don’t let a lack of planning ruin your yacht charter in Turkey during Covid. Those who fail to present proof of a negative Covid-19 PCR test will be quarantined for 14 days.
Passengers who visited Brazil, United Kingdom, Denmark or South Africa within 10 days prior to arrival will also be quarantined. This will occur for 14 days at places selected by the Turkish official authorities. In this instance, this may be a residential address. On the 10th day of the quarantine period, passengers are required to undertake a second PCR test. If the test result is negative, the quarantine can end.
All other travellers, including those in the country for a yacht charter, do not have to quarantine.
So, I can charter a yacht in Turkey during Covid, but what are the current general restrictions in the country?
You must wear a face mask at all times outside the home.
Curfews are in force, however, this does not apply to foreign visitors.
Restaurants, cafes, and bars are open every day except Sunday from 7AM to 7PM, however this is at 50% capacity.
Notably, the Turkish government has announced a lock-down throughout the Ramadan holiday from May 12 until May 16, 2021.
Furthermore, capacity is limited on public transport.
