Hotel quarantine requirement for students going to Turkey from Pakistan ended
The quarantine ban on students going to Turkey from Pakistan has been lifted.
The Turkish government’s August 5 notification is being implemented, according to which Pakistanis permanently residing in Turkey can be quarantined in their own homes.
At the same time, the quarantine ban on students going to Turkey from Pakistan has also been lifted.
According to the Pakistani embassy, university hostels have been set up in Istanbul and Ankara for the quarantine of students. Students will have to show their university registration after which they will be exempted from the quarantine requirement in a private hotel.
Earlier, Turkey had issued a new travel policy for residents of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and India, under which foreign travelers have to stay in quarantine for 7 to 10 days after arriving in Turkey.
Officials said that the cost of hotel quarantine in Turkey will have to be borne by the passengers themselves and 200 euros will have to be paid for quarantine in the government approved hotel.
