Finally Germany gave allowance German citizens to travel to Turkey. This allowance is compromising only four provinces (Muğla,Antalya,İzmir and Aydın). They are well-known holiday resorts of Turkey. Up to the new normal conditions, German government asked the citizens to obey the social distance and health rules. Also when they come back to Germany, they have to take the COVID test in 48 hours.
