Holiday warning as Brits in Turkey face arrest for breaking little known rule

BRITS heading to Turkey have been warned to have their passports on them at all times, or risk arrest.

The country has a little-known rule that requires holidaymakers to be able to show photographic ID at all times.

This can be a driving licence or passport.

The Foreign Office website warns: "It is illegal not to carry some form of photographic ID in Turkey.

"You should carry your passport or residence permit at all times.

"In some busy areas, especially Istanbul, the Turkish authorities may stop members of the public to conduct ID checks."

Thankfully, both vaccinated and unvaccinated Brits can travel to Turkey.

If fully vaccinated, you only need to show evidence of both jabs, while unvaxxed Brits need a negative Covid test.

If you’re not fully vaccinated but have recovered from Covid in the last six months, you can enter Turkey too.

Turkey isn't the only destination that has rules in place Brits might not be aware of.
