Safety in Turkey

Most of Turkey lies in a zone of high seismic activity. Earthquakes are frequent. In the event of a stay in the country, it is advisable to consult the usual recommendations. The attacks that regularly hit Turkey attest to the persistence of a terrorist risk in this country. Before you leave, take the time to consult the recommendations in the health and safety section of the France Diplomatie website.

Health and repatriation insurance in Turkey

Why take out international health insurance when traveling or living in Turkey? Quite simply because healthcare costs can quickly reach very high levels abroad. Repatriation cover is also an essential criterion. In the event of a serious accident, medical repatriation to the nearest medical center or to the country of residence may be necessary. Depending on where you are at the time of the accident, and the medical prognosis, it may be necessary to charter a helicopter or medical aircraft.
