As you may be aware, many airlines have suspended flights to and from the Republic of Turkey due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
In view of the above, the Zambian Mission in Ankara wishes to advise citizens who may have been forced to exceed their period of stay in Turkey or will exceed their visa due to flight cancellations, to urgently submit their passport details to the Embassy as well as the planned border exit point.
This information is necessary to enable the Mission to engage Turkish authorities on the possibility of waiving criminal prosecution on those who may be affected by the cancellation of flights.
Citizens are advised to email their passport details to [email protected] or use the following contact numbers: +90 539 394 79 20, +90 538 247 13 93 and +90 534 292 28 43
