German government: 65 citizens banned from leaving Turkey

 At least 65 German citizens are currently unable to leave Turkey due to travel bans.

In 2023 alone, 16 new cases have come to light, half of them related to terrorism allegations, the German government revealed at the request of Sevim Dağdelen, a lawmaker formerly with the far-left Linke Party. The response was seen by dpa.

Detentions and exit bans are a recurring issue between Germany and Turkey.

The German government has also been recording entry bans on Germans travelling to Turkey since mid-2022, according to the government’s information. In 2023, 43 cases are known in which entry was denied. The reasons for this are not known.
