Safe holidays await tourists in Turkey with Corona Measures

Turkey's great success, with its best tourist destinations, has made it the top favorite country for safe holidays, at a time when the Corona has spread, and measures have become binding in hotels and tourist destinations.

The Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism promotion campaigns also played an important role in turning Turkey into a milestone in the safe tourism sector during the Corona epidemic.

In coordination with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the Ministry of Health of Turkey, the country's Safe Tourism Certificate program, which in turn includes a range of proposed measures at the airport, reception, accommodation, and all facilities included in the visit programs, has been launched to apply to all citizens and foreign visitors in Turkey.

In addition, the Ministry of Health, in cooperation with the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Interior and Tourism a, and specialized international institutions, will grant certificates under this program confirming the commitment of hotels, restaurants, and resorts to Coronavirus safety standards.

The Main Pillars of the Safe Tourism Program

During the ongoing preparations, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism received tourism representatives in some countries, including Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Ukraine, and Indonesia. It organized special tours to highlight the measures taken by the Ministry to ensure the safety of the passenger.

The ministry explained the basic pillars on which it depends in the safe tourism program, which include the health and safety of both the passenger and the worker, the measures taken at the facilities and in the transport, through which hygiene and health safety standards are documented in aircraft, airports, hotels, and restaurants.

According to data from the Turkish Statistics Authority, tourism revenues reached $12,590,000,320 by receiving 16 million tourists in 2020, despite all the exceptional circumstances the world experienced during the Corona pandemic.

Thanks to the Safe Tourism Certificate program, the tourism sector will provide the best services, both in Antalya and Mugla, which attract the attention of local and foreign tourists. After completing the preparations for the new season, tourism representatives believe that they will host more tourists.
