The vaccination program aims to welcome international travellers for the upcoming summer season and ensure the health and safety of tourism employees and its residents.

Since the launch of ‘Safe Tourism Certification Program’ in June, Turkey has been following stringent health and safety guidelines.

As part of continuing effort to fight against Covid-19, certification is compulsory for accommodation facilities with 30 or more rooms.

More than 8,000 facilities have been certified.
