  5. With tourism starting back up in June, I'm trying (with little success) to find answers to these questions. Was wondering if you could help. We are from the US, and I'm having a hard time finding out if we will even be allowed to fly there end of June/July... does anyone know if people from the US are allowed to come as tourists?

Turkish Airlines re-booked my flight over the phone, for the earliest flight from Dulles International Airport to Istanbul, then to Antalya, departing on June 22nd. While the initial e-mails I received for the first booking gave me a link to get an HES Code (a code for Covid-19 tracing of travelers), the lady I spoke to while rescheduling said I wasn't required to get one. If you have to call Turkish Airli
  9. As you may know, domestic flights in Turkey will begin again on June 4th. International flights will begin again on June 10th.

  12. The Turkish Ministry of Health have confirmed that passengers without Turkish residency permits will not be permitted to enter Turkey within 14 days of a visit to China, South Korea, Iran, Iraq or Italy. If a passenger has a residency permit, they may be allowed to enter Turkey but they will be tested on arrival for COVID-19.

The 157 helpline said I have to go to göç idaresı (immigration office) in Muğla but being over 65 I can't leave the house because of the Covid-19 restrictions. I rang the Muğla office but couldn't find an English speaker and my Tarzan Turkish doesn't go too far. As far as I could gather I shouldn't do anything about it but surely this will breach the 20 day rule particularly as I've informed the 157 helpline of my situation. An
