Re: Foreign & Commonwealth Office updates for Turkey

Update on GOV.​UK.

Turkey travel advice

Change made
Update to information on HES code (‘Coronavirus’ page).

Time updated
3:54pm, 22 September 2020

Coronavirus

Coronavirus travel health
Check the latest information on risk from COVID-19 for Turkey on the TravelHealthPro website.

See the TravelHealthPro website for further advice on travel abroad and reducing spread of respiratory viruses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Entry and borders
See Entry requirements to find out what you will need to do when you arrive in Turkey.

Travel in Turkey

HES codes for intercity travel
Turkish citizens and residents must request a HES (Hayat Eve Sigar) Code for domestic and international flights, train and ferry travel. Some provinces also require submission of a HES code upon entry to public buildings and banks. This does not apply to foreign tourists. This can be done through the e-Devlet system, the ‘Hayat Eve Sığar’ smartphone application and by SMS.

IF YOU HAVE A TURKISH RESIDENT ID: Send a text message to phone number 2023 that includes (a) the letters “HES”, (b) your Turkish kimlik number (c) your year of birth, and (d) the number of days you will be traveling, plus 7 days. Put a single space between each item.

IF YOU HAVE TURKISH CITIZENSHIP: Send a text message to phone number 2023 that includes (a) the letters “HES”, (b) your Turkish kimlik number (c) the last four digits of the series number of your ID, and (d) surname, the number of days you will be traveling, plus 7 days should be used. Put a single space between each item.

Airlines also have information on their websites in English about the HES code, including:

SunExpress
Turkish Airlines
Pegasus
If you are over 65, and a visitor to Turkey, you no longer require a permit to travel between cities. A permit is still required if you are a Turkish resident and you must remain at your destination for a minimum of 30 days unless travelling for an international flight.

Public spaces and services
As of 8 September the wearing of masks is mandatory at all times outside the home throughout Turkey. This includes, but is not limited to, all public places, including streets, side streets, parks, gardens, picnic areas, markets, sea side and public transportation including Metro, buses, taxis and ferries. Masks are also mandatory in all shops, restaurants, hairdressers and barber shops.

There will be strict inspections to ensure the measures are being carried out. Those who do not abide by this rule may be issued with a fine of 900 TL (approximately 106). Follow Turkish announcements and local media for up to date information.

Curfews

There remains an ongoing curfew for those who have a chronic medical condition. In addition:

If you are a Residence Permit holders over 65 years old, you must stay inside between 8pm and 10am on a daily basis. This does not apply to those visiting for tourism.
Beyond these exemptions, people in these categories must not leave their homes. See Travel in Turkey if you fall into one of these categories and need to travel.
