After the transportation restrictions were repealed in Turkey, the new normalization process began to be implemented step by step and domestic flights are opened. According to the latest Ministry of Health announcement, it is now compulsory to get a HES code when purchasing airline tickets. Thanks to the HES code, the health status of the person traveling will be questioned, and if there are any coronavirus symptoms, the trip will not be confirmed. If the person comes across anyone with coronavirus symptoms during the trip, health and guidance services will be provided.
HOW TO GET A HES CODE?
There are two methods to get the HES code, SMS and Hayat Eve Sigar app. You should get the HES code at least 7 days before your trip.
To receive the HES code via SMS,
You need to write HES (space) 11- digit TC ID number (space) the last 4 digits of the serial number of your ID (space) the period of validity and send it to 2023 as an SMS.
For example, HES 11111111111 1234 10
What is the Period of Validity?
The Period of Validity is the number of days that indicate how many days the HES code will be valid. The point you should be careful about here is that if your flight is 5 days from today, and the number of days you will stay is 4, you will need a code that is valid for 10 days in total. Do not forget to calculate the code validity date in this way. If you make this calculation wrong, you will need to get a new HES code.

The point you need to know here is that you can only get a HES code for yourself from the Hayat Eve Sigar app. If you want to get more HES codes for other people you are traveling with, you should get them via SMS.
