Is life getting back to normal in Turkey after the first infection of Covid 19 was reported in Turkey in March 2020? We are happy to report it is. The government has taken many precautions to reduce the impacts of the pandemic, which has caused mayhem around the globe. The Turkish Ministry of Health’s government body in science has worked endlessly to improve and update the measures that must be adhered to while checking the virus’s pace of infections and variants. Turkish official institutions have implemented a series of preventive measures to prevent the virus’s spread during the last year and a half. Many prospective buyers ask I can’t travel to Turkey – can I buy a property online?
Turkish Ministry Of Health
The government’s attempts to put a curb on the pandemic have been successful. The Turkish Ministry of Health has stated a huge reduction following a three-week “closure” period between April 29 and May 17. As a result, the Turkish Ministry of Interior decided to ease the conditions of the complete closure in preparation for a return to everyday life. It informed 81 states easing the curfew measures beginning at 5 a.m. on Monday, May 17 until June 1, provided that the curfew remains in effect during the period mentioned above from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
What Restrictions Where There?
The Turkish Ministry of Interior allowed 65’s and older to leave their homes during the given hours if they had received the vaccine. Young people 18 years and under are allowed to leave the house within the prescribed hours without being vaccinated. However, these two groups are not permitted to utilise public transit.
The circular permitted kindergartens and nurseries to continue operating effectively Monday, June 17, as long as the rest of the school levels continued to offer remote learning for the remainder of the school year. In public institutions, “flexible work” processes were still in use, with working hours ranging from ten a.m. to four p.m. Cafés, cinema halls, Internet cafes, swimming pools, stadiums, and gyms all remained closed until June 1st.
Take Away Service For Restaurants
People were allowed to order and receive food and beverages from the restaurant from seven a.m. to eight p.m., but customers inside the restaurant were prohibited. The home delivery service is available from 8:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. Shops and retail outlets were allowed to open from ten a.m. to eight p.m. Monday through Friday and are closed on Saturday and Sunday. On Sunday, May 31, the next phase of the return to normalcy began, with restaurant hours extended until ten p.m. and no curfew. The third phase began in July. Marriages are permitted with small limitations, and cafés and restaurants can trade until midnight.
Turkey’s tourism sector is safe, and real estate investments are paying off
As the tourism season in Turkey, this summer is underway, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism Turkey stated the continuation of the safe tourism programme. The programme requires all tourist facilities to adhere to the conditions obtaining a safe tourism certificate, ensuring the health and wellbeing of tourists. Turkeys Tourism’s Certificate of safe tourism has aided Turkey’s rise to the top of the list of favourite holiday destinations. Turkey has seen a huge rise in foreign tourists in the last few months. In 2020 Turkey welcomed about 16 million tourists, with tourism profits reaching between 12 billion and 59 million US dollars. As reported by the Turkish Statistics Authority.
Turkey moving forward in the future
Turkey is looking forward to receiving a larger number of visitors this year than in 2020. More so since the immunisation process will play a huge role in increasing tourism activity throughout Turkey. The ongoing boom of the real estate investment movement, particularly for overseas buyers, is expected to coincide with the action of the tourism movement.
