TRAVEL INSURANCE

It is strongly recommended that personal travel insurance (particularly medical cover) be taken out at the time of making your Tour reservation. Travel insurance may facilitate some refund of travel expenses and the tour fee to be obtained through insurers in the event of inability to travel due to ill health or other circumstances. Make sure you read the fine print to ensure you are purchasing the correct coverage. IFEAT takes no responsibility in the event an inadequate policy has been purchased or of the refusal or inability of an insurer to pay the claim. For further information on personal travel insurance please contact your local insurance broker.

 

PASSPORT AND VISA REQUIREMENTS

Passports must be valid for at least 150 days from the date of entry.

Please review your country requirements on the following link of the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs website. Here you can see eligibility, visa types & application links. https://www.mfa.gov.tr/visa-information-for-foreigners.en.mfa

If it is required for delegates to obtain a visa, it is important that delegates apply early.

IFEAT can provide visa information letters to assist in your application. Processing time varies according to the nationality of the applicant and local conditions of the issuing department. While IFEAT will assist as much as possible in obtaining the necessary visa, it cannot be held responsible for delegates failing to obtain the necessary travel permits, 

  

HEALTH CARE

Your doctor or travel clinic is the best source of information about preventive measures, immunisations, and disease outbreaks overseas. The World Health Organization (WHO) provides information for travellers and provides useful tips for staying healthy and travelling with medicines while overseas.
