With Turkiye relaxing the COVID-19 related travel restrictions for Indian visitors, the country hosted the highest ever number of travellers from India in June this year. Turkiye received more than 27,000 Indian tourists during the month, breaking all the previous inbound travel records from India in a single month.

As the demand for international travel picks up, this sudden boost to Turkiye tourism from the Indian sector can be attributed to several factors such as the country’s mesmerising destinations, fascinating history, its architecture, along with the ease of procuring visas for leisure travel. Moreover, with carriers like Turkish Airlines and Indigo resuming direct flights to the country, travelling to Turkiye has become more convenient for Indians.

India has been one of the top source markets for visitor arrivals into Turkiye and the current peak travelling season has also favoured the numbers immensely. Given that May and October are the most preferred months for Indian tourists to visit Turkiye, the all-time high volume of travellers witnessed in June not only comes as a surprise for the Turkiye Tourism market, but also indicates that more record-breaking numbers will follow in the coming months.

Turkiye is one of the most sought after tourist destinations for Indians. Additionally, with its highly successful ‘Safe Tourism Certification Program’ in place, Turkiye expects to welcome an even higher number of international travellers from the world over, all through 2022.
