**COVID-19 information: The conditions required for public transport in 2021
All passengers aged 6 and over traveling to Turkey will have to complete a new online form. The form must be filled in within the last 72 hours before travel.
According to the message given by the Turkish Ministry of Health (the source of this new measure), by filling in the form, "a HES code is automatically generated"; thus "Turkish authorities will be able to contact travelers who come into contact with a person positive for COVID-19 directly during their flight or during their trip to the country".

Thus, if you want to take public transport (bus, metro, ferry, tram, etc.) during your stay in Turkey, you will need a transport ticket (Istanbul Card for the city of Istanbul, strictly individual) and a HES code.
For intercity transport (planes, buses, sea shuttles, etc.), a reservation, a transport ticket, and a HES code are required.
