Tourists traveling to Turkey warned of possible arrest due to little-known rule

Foreign tourists traveling to Turkey have been warned to carry a photo ID with them at all times. Otherwise, they may be arrested by the police. The Sun warned British tourists about a little-known rule, but the rule also applies to Russian tourists. There have already been such precedents when Russian tourists were taken to a Turkish “jailhouse” due to the lack of a passport, which the police asked to show.

It is clarified that such documents include a passport, driver’s license or residence permit. Here is what is stated on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs: “It is illegal to carry a photo ID in Turkey. You must carry your passport or residence permit with you at all times. In some busy areas, especially in Istanbul, Turkish authorities may stop members of the public to conduct identity checks.”

Turkey is not the only destination with regulations that Russian tourists may not be aware of. Spanish legislation is famous for numerous and amazing laws. That is why it is easy for travelers to break the rules on vacation and get fined. Among them are fines for smoking on the beach or wearing a bikini and walking topless on the main resort streets. Perhaps the largest fine awaits a traveler if he is caught at illegal parties in some popular resorts in Spain – more than 2 million rubles.
