24/05/2021

From Monday, May 24, 2021, in cases where this is required as one of the alternatives to allow entry or provide a service, the protection period will be extended from 90 to 180 days for people who have undergone covid-19. Vaccination 21 days after the first dose will also be accepted. Changes to the relevant emergency measures of the Ministry of Health were approved by the government at an extraordinary meeting on Friday, May 21, 2021.

The covid-19 disease is one of the alternatives to the otn system (vaccination, test, past disease), which proves, for example, employees at the employer, children at school, clients in spas or accommodation services, or people returning from abroad so that they do not have to undergo covid test, still valid for ninety days from the first positive test for covid-19. From Monday, May 24, this period is doubled, ie 180 days.

At the same time, for these purposes, where required by extraordinary measures of the Ministry of Health, the completion of the first dose of vaccination on covid-19 in a two-dose vaccination schedule will be newly recognized if at least 21 days have elapsed since its administration.
