The health tourism programme is led by the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism, with the participation of the Interior Ministry, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other relevant parties. The certification is issued by an international certification body, covering transportation, accommodation, catering and more to ensure that all facilities meet the high level of health and hygiene requirements and fully protect the health of employees and passengers.

The certification plan shows that Turkey will play a leading role in normalizing tourism. We will put the health and safety of tourists in the first place, and based on the concept of focusing on the needs of tourists, everyone will take active actions to build healthy tourism.
