There are simply two reasons why one should get a COVID PCR test in Istanbul. First of all, if you are not vaccinated, you will be asked to provide a negative PCR test result before entering Turkey and before leaving Turkey. That is a strict requirement of airline companies as well as the National Turkish Ministry of Health. Those who fail to provide a negative test result will not be boarded to plane and will not be admitted to the country. Moreover, you will have to show your negative PCR test result at the airport before leaving Turkey. If you are not vaccinated, most airline companies will refuse to board you or demand you to bring a negative PCR test result 24 hours before your flight.
The second reason why you should get tested is to make your trip easygoing and smooth. Once you are admitted from the border of Turkey, it is not obligatory to get tested during your Istanbul visit. However, it has many benefits. Istanbul has been recovering from COVID during the last few months, and vaccines are getting more prominent. Thus, some restaurants, cafes, and even museums can ask for proof of vaccination or negative PCR tests when you are visiting. In order to be safe and to be able to experience the city to the fullest, you should get a Coronavirus test in Istanbul.

There are many reasons why you should get your PCR test with our partner clinic during your Istanbul visit. Some of them are as follows:
Our partner clinic works with top-level safety in terms of a clean and disinfected workplace. The clinic is disinfected 24/7, and there is no risk of transmission thanks to the vaccinated and protected workers. You will have your test in a clean, modern lab that is certified by the Turkish Ministry of Health.
Our partners are in the business for more than 10 years. You will be welcomed by English-speaking staff and healthcare workers who work in the fastest manner possible. Your results will be available less than 24 hours later after you get tested.
The clinic is 10 minutes away from the city center, located in Beyoğlu Taksim. This is important because the further you go in public transportation, the riskier it gets in terms of being infected and infecting others with the virus. It is also important due to its convenience, and proximity to hotels.
Anyone living or visiting Istanbul can have a PCR test. However, we recommend tourists get tested because some restaurants and attractions may be hesitant to let you in if you are not vaccinated and if you do not have negative results. To get the most out of your trip, It is advised to get tested right after you check in to your hotel. This way, you can get your results the same day and start planning your itinerary.
If you are going to go back to your home country or visit another country after Turkey, it is best to get tested 24 hours before your flight, since results must come in before you get on board. You are expected to show your results either through your mobile phone or on paper before your flight. With Istanbul Tourist Pass®️'s partner labs, you will get your digital results within the same day and you will not have any trouble at the airport.
If you are diagnosed with the virus, you should stay in quarantine. You cannot get a PCR test for the next 10 days and you cannot fly internationally. You should get in contact with your doctor and go to a nearby hospital immediately. At the hospital, you will be asked to fill a form regarding your Covid situation, travel history, and symptoms. You can then go back to your hotel and start your quarantine process. Make sure to alert the hotel staff of your situation so that they can make sure to take all cautions and support you during this difficult time.
