To promote the Safe Tourism Certification Program, the Culture and Tourism Ministry of Turkey invited 35 German tourism representatives. The group visited the touristic areas in Turkey, such as Izmir, and viewed the safety precautions. Their conclusion is; the EU should reconsider their travel restrictions. According to German tourism magazines, Turkey is following the hygiene rules very effectively, and the safety measures taken by the tourism facilities (hotels and beaches) are very sensible.
