COVID-19 health requirements

If passengers cannot locate contact information, they will not be allowed through border control and they will miss their flight despite already holding an eVisa or visa sticker.

The Passenger Locator Form is part of a package of COVID-19 health requirements, all of which are designed to promote safe travel during the pandemic. The Passenger Locator Form must be submitted online before departure.

Passengers should submit the Form for Entry to Turkey online before departure. They can do so when applying for their Turkish eVisa or by clicking the link below.

They can also fill out the Passenger Locator Form at passport control if they arrive after checking in online because passengers cannot check into an international flight without presenting themselves at passport control first.

What Is The Covid-19 Form For Entry To Turkey?

Turkey introduced a passenger locator to passenger transporter in order to minimize the spread of coronavirus in Turkey. The passenger agency obtains information about travelers who are seated near someone who tests positive for coronavirus or becomes sick with coronavirus during their journey.

Passengers who have traveled on planes, trains and buses with a passenger seated near them on their last trip can answer these questions on the Passenger Locator Form:

Passenger Locator Form on Arrival

If you're already bound for Turkey and did not yet fill out the Passenger Locator Form online, never fear! You can still fill out the Passenger Locator Form on arrival.

When arriving by air at any of Turkey's entry points (except Israel, Syria, and Iran) travelers should proceed to the designated e-Visa lanes for e-Visa holders or follow signs to the passport control booths for visitors with visas on arrival if they are eligible.

Then they will be asked to complete a Passenger Locator Form on either a computer or with paper and pen.
If you only have an e-Visa, submit your application now. If you need a visa on arrival please read more about who is eligible to use this service.
