COVID – 19 Information
Notice: A mobile PCR COVID-19 testing service will be available at the meeting site. The typical arrival response time is about 30 minutes for the testing service. Once the nasal swab is performed, the sample is brought to a laboratory by the mobile tester. Test results are completed within 12 hours, certified by the Turkish Government, and delivered by e-mail. This cost is in the range of 25 to 35 Euros per test. This documentation suffices to allow your return through immigration/border control in most countries. Please check with the guidelines of your returning country.If you test positive and your airline or returning country requires quarantine in Turkey, then you are responsible for finding your own accommodations. The local organizing committee will be happy to assist in finding extended hotel accommodations. Istanbul is a large city, with many safe, reasonably priced hotels. There should be few problems finding accommodations in the unlikely event this happens.
