The code can also be obtained in Turkey via SMS or using an app.

When entering Germany from third countries, different regulations may apply.
 

When entering Turkey, random PCR tests can be ordered, after which the onward journey to the destination can take place immediately. If the test result is positive, treatment is carried out according to Turkish guidelines. Temperature measurements are also taken upon entry. If you have an elevated body temperature or other COVID-19 symptoms, additional health checks may be carried out.

For travel from Turkey to Germany, the provisions of the German entry regulations apply. This will be checked at check-in.
