How do I get to the Peace Palace?
The World Peace Assembly takes place at the Peace Palace near the Istanbul Airport (IST).
Istanbul Airport (IST) is the main international airport serving Istanbul. It is located on the European side of the city and the distance to the Peace Palace is only 16 km.
Sabiha Gokcen Airport (SAW) on the Asian side of Istanbul is a second option but it is approx. 90 km from there to the Peace Palace.
Taxis to get to the course location
You will find large taxi stands in front of both airports. Give the driver the address of the Peace Palace and he will enter it into his GPS and bring you directly to the Peace Palace.

Turkish rules on COVID-19
Unrestricted international entry into Turkey has resumed, with travelers permitted to enter the country without any testing or vaccination requirements. The necessity to complete a passenger locator form is no longer in effect.
Authorities could reimpose or otherwise amend any restrictions with little-to-no notice depending on disease activity over the coming weeks.
Follow all official instructions. Abide by national health and safety measures. Reconfirm all travel arrangements. Consider delaying traveling if experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19, as they may prompt increased scrutiny and delays. Liaise with trusted contacts for further updates and guidance. Maintain contact with your diplomatic representation. Ensure contingency plans account for further disruptive measures or extensions of current restrictions.
