posted in: Travel 0

As you know, from March 15, 2021, you no longer need to present a negative PCR test to travel to Turkey, but all tourists need to get a HES code. To do this, you must fill out an electronic form on the government website 72 hours before departure.

What is HES code

HES code (Hayat Eve Sığar) is a personal number that is automatically assigned to all foreign tourists when filling out a special questionnaire. You need to fill out the questionnaire no earlier than 72 hours before the flight to Turkey.

Such innovation is necessary in order to protect the health of tourists during their stay in Turkey, as well as in order to provide accurate information about the Covid-19 pandemic and so that people who have come into contact with those infected with Covid-19 can be found.

She enthusiastically shares her experiences through her journalistic work, writing about international travel, cars, performing arts, and news in general. Darina's work can be found in several international publications. Hello! I'm Darina Logvinova. My life is full of interesting events. And I want to share this with you. My passion is to travel. Perhaps there is nothing more surprising and impressive than discovering new countries, new cultures, cities, uniquely beautiful places. Travel is life. This is what always gives strength, energy, and desire to go forward. It's so hard to wake up early for work, but it's so easy - to the airport or to the train =) I am also a fan of psychology. I believe that it is impossible to have a harmonious relationship with yourself and with the people around you, without understanding anything about our inner world. Many world-famous authors set out their thoughts in books, they are very smart and talented people who share their knowledge and experience. There is nothing easier than buying a book and learning something new from the geniuses of psychology. Our feelings and emotions are very multifaceted. We all perceive the world in different ways and we need to be able to respect and understand this. Everything that we wish will certainly come true, you need to be able to dream about it correctly. The universe does not limit anyone. It is full of supplies for each of us. Psychology is a very important science for humanity. The more the world develops, the more people understand this. The more we are tolerant to ourselves and to all people, the more good there will be in our lives and in the whole world. Development is the driving force behind humanity. We simply cannot afford to stand still, otherwise, our life loses all meaning. Every day, discovering something new for ourselves, we move forward towards our goals.
