Romanian Citizens Travel to Türkiye with ID Card from June 1

Romanian citizens can travel to Türkiye only with their ID card after June 1. The announcement comes after Turkish President Recep Erdogan signed a presidential decree on the occasion of the official visit of PM Marcel Ciolacu. No visa or passport are required.

“Romanian citizens holding a national identity card are granted visa exemption for their tourist trips and transit to Turkey with a maximum stay of 90 days in any 180 days, according to article 18 of Law no. 6458 regarding foreigners. and international protection” is mentioned in the presidential decree.

I, for my part, want to thank President Erdogan for the special gesture he made towards the Romanian citizens. Through today’s decision, Romanians who want to travel to Türkiye can do so only with the Romanian-issued ID card, no longer needing a passport. We know very well that many Romanians prefer Turkey as a tourist destination and I think this will help a lot.

According to last year’s statistics, around 1 million Romanian nationals travel to Türkiye each year for leisure, business or medical purposes.
