Turkey gives relief to Indians taking Covaccine-Kovshield, Quarantine rule ends


Indian travelers who have taken both doses of Corona vaccine are going to get a big relief on their trip to Turkey from Monday. Indians who have taken both doses of Covishield and Covaccine will no longer have to be quarantined on their way to Turkey. A statement has been issued by the Embassy of Turkey in this regard.

According to the statement, changes are being made in the quarantine rules for travelers from India and Nepal from November 15. From Monday, passengers will have to show negative RTPCR report, which should not be older than 72 hours.


According to the statement, travelers taking both doses of the corona vaccine approved for emergency use by the World Health Organization or Turkey will now be exempted from Turkey’s mandatory quarantine rule. However, passengers who will not be able to show the vaccine certificate will have to be quarantined at their residence or declared address in Turkey and on the tenth day they will have to undergo a corona test, which will end their quarantine if they come negative.

Turkish Ambassador Firas Sunel tweeted, ‘Travellers must submit only negative RTPCR test report and vaccination certificate. Covaccine and Covishield are both acceptable. Only negative RTPCR test report is required for children of 12 to 18 years, test report is not required for those below 12 years of age. Let us inform that the World Health Organization has included India’s indigenous vaccine Covaccine in its list on 3 November.
