Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism


Thursday, 21 July 2016


Τhe three-month state of Emergency which was declared in the whole of the country started from 21.07.2016, is  a package of measure under the rules of constitutional law to be implemented in order to increase the security measures and give to the State the ability to fight against the threats in the citizens’ rights and freedom.

The above mentioned package of measures does not contain restrictions of freedom and fundamental rights. The measures to be implemented do not affect in anyway the daily life of Turkish citizens, our country’s visitors’ trips and vacations and do not frustrate the air traffic and the international tourist flows. There is no negative situation that can prevent our visitors from having a secure vacation in all tourism destinations of Turkey.
