Flights, visas and transfers
To make the most of your time in Istanbul, we at FUEMEDICALCENTER recommend a stay of at least two nights, so when booking your flight you should bear in mind the following factors:
The transfers that are included in the price are only from Atatürk International Airport (IST airport code). It is the main Turkish airport, and the fifth in Europe by number of passengers, and is located in the European part of the city, a few kilometers from the hospital.
The second airport in Istanbul is Sabiha Gökçen Sabiha International Airport (airport code SAW), where low-cost airlines such as Pegasus Airlines fly from Madrid or Barcelona. This airport is 50 km away from the clinic, and transfers from and to this airport will be provided for a supplement of 90 ?, round trip included.
The airlines we recommend are those that have direct flights. You can find direct flights to Istanbul from Spanish airports in Madrid, Malaga or Barcelona, among others. In general, we recommend this type of non-stop flight for both convenience and price. You can find the best flight offers here.
For your visa
Spanish citizens can enter Turkey with either a passport or an ID card. The document only needs to be valid for at least three months. The visa can be obtained from the website of the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs or directly at the airport. Follow the instructions here.
In FUEMEDICALCENTER we do not work on weekends, so it is advisable to keep this in mind for flights. It is advisable not to book a flight for a Friday and to return on Monday. However, during the weekend we still offer airport pick-up services and accommodation in our partner hotels, but only in very specific cases we would perform the intervention.
The days on which we operate are from Monday to Friday, and on Saturdays we can have some post-operative visits.
Here’s an example of a trip
Sunday afternoon – arrival in Istanbul
Sunday night – first night at the hotel
Monday morning – first visit and pre-op tests
Monday morning – intervention
Monday afternoon – end of surgery and return to hotel
Monday night – second night at the hotel
Tuesday morning – post-operative check-up
