While EU and national Governments work to reopen borders and start to stimulate tourism for the summer, confusion remains about who can come and go, Turkey looks like it will be one of the first countries opening up to cruising this summer. The government has announced that it foresees activities to start as of the 27th May, but these dates still need to be officially confirmed by them.
It appears that all navigational activity will be permitted in Turkish waters as from the 27th May, including entry and cruising for foreign flagged vessels.
The government is currently preparing a schedule to restart domestic and international flights. International flights will be partially re-activated as from the 27th May but will be subject to some restrictions.
All marinas across Turkey are disinfected daily by government certified teams using environmentally friendly products, protecting the environment, humans and animals. It is compulsory for all marina staff to wear masks and gloves, and doctors carry out daily examinations.
