1)prenetry to Turkey reuirements and
2)return to UK reqs
Entry to Turkey
All arrivals into Turkey aged 6 and over, including Turkish citizens and residence permit holders, must complete an online form (Form for Entry to Turkey) a maximum of 72 hours prior to travel. You do not need to do this if you’re transiting Turkey on the way to another country.

All arrivals (aged 12 and over) - including those arriving from the UK - into Turkey, from countries other than those mentioned below, must have proof of one of the following:

A full course of COVID-19 vaccinations (completed at least 14 days prior to arrival in Turkey)
recent recovery from COVID-19
a negative PCR test (less than 72 hours of arrival)
a rapid antigen test (less than 48 hours of arrival).
For children aged 11 and under, no PCR test or vaccination certificate is needed.

Further entry restrictions are currently in place for passengers arriving from, or who have visited in the previous 14 days, the following countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Brazil, Egypt, India, Iran, Nepal, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia and Zimbabwe. For the latest information on these restrictions, refer to the IATA website, and select Turkey on the map.

COVID-19 entry requirements may change at short notice, and travellers to Turkey are strongly encouraged to check the specifics, including the time frames for undertaking pre-departure COVID-19 PCR tests, with their airline before they travel. Further details are available on Turkish Airlines or Pegasus websites including information about what these airlines accept as proof of a negative test.

All arrivals into Turkey will be subject to a medical evaluation for symptoms of coronavirus, including temperature checks. Arrivals may be subject to random PCR testing on arrival.

If you are transiting through Turkey to a country that requires a COVID-19 PCR test on arrival, then you must obtain a negative COVID-19 PCR test before travelling.

Demonstrating your COVID-19 status
Turkey will accept the UK’s proof of COVID-19 recovery and vaccination record and proof of COVID-19 vaccination issued in the Crown Dependencies. If you are travelling with a printed PDF proof of vaccination status, it must date from 1 November 2021 to ensure that the certificate can be scanned successfully. Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.

You should not use the NHS testing service to get a test in order to facilitate your travel to another country. You should arrange to take a private test.
