Border Procedures and Duty Free Allowance at Istanbul (Atatürk) International Airport

The border procedures at the Istanbul International Airports are not that complicated but follow strict rules. And if you’re a duty free fan, you’ll love Turkey. After you shopped duty free prior to boarding the plane, you’re also allowed to buy duty free goods after arriving in Istanbul.
