Q and A


Can I travel to Turkey with my meds?

I’m HIV positive and on medication. Can I travel to Turkey with my medication? Is it allowed to enter to Turkey having my medication in my luggage?


Thanks for getting in touch.

Turkey doesn’t have any travel restrictions for people who are positive. For more info please see here:

    Hi Pretty,

    There aren’t any specific travel restrictions of people who are positive going into Turkey. If you’re travelling it’s always best to have your meds in your hand luggage, this is just in case there’s an issue with checked in luggage.

    With regards to security noticing, we can’t comment on this as this is an immigration issue.

    You could try your local embassy and ask how to apply for a visa.

    Hi Joselyn,

    There are no travel restrictions for Turkey for people with HIV. And there is no HIV testing on entry.
