TÜRSAB QR CODE PLATE APPLICATION PROCESS AND AGENCY INFORMATION
WHAT IS TÜRSAB QR CODE PLATE?
TÜRSAB QR code plate is a mandatory document that is defined as "TÜRSAB vehicle plate" in the 40th and 41st articles of the Regulation on Travel Agencies and has the nature of a "mandatory document to be carried in vehicles". This document, which must be carried in tourist vehicles, is referred to as the "TÜRSAB QR Code Plate".
WHY IS TÜRSAB QR CODE PLATE NECESSARY?
The "TÜRSAB QR Code Plate" is a mandatory document to be carried in vehicles of travel agencies providing package tours, tours and transfer services, and it must be present in each vehicle used for the provision of services in each organized package tour, tour and transfer activity.
Because TÜRSAB QR code plate has the nature of a "mandatory document to be carried" according to the 40th and 41st articles of the Regulation on Travel Agencies, and the validity of the plates expires at the end of each calendar year, plate requests for the following year must be made starting from December.
HOW TO OBTAIN TÜRSAB QR CODED PLATE?
Applications for "TÜRSAB QR Coded Plate" can be made by travel agencies through the TÜRSAB ONLINE system at https://www.tursab.org.tr. Agencies without a password can create an online password. Applications cannot be made from another location other than the agency. Applications will not be completed without payment of the fee. In addition, even if the payment is made, applications of agencies that do not meet the criteria for obtaining "TÜRSAB QR Coded Plate" will be canceled, and the fee paid will be refunded to them, and their applications will be terminated.
HOW MANY TÜRSAB QR CODED PLATES CAN BE OBTAINED?
Travel agencies can request the number of plates required for their road transportation activities.
Travel agencies can obtain the number of plates defined in their applications through TÜRSAB ONLINE. For plate requests exceeding the defined capacity, they can obtain the number of plates determined after evaluation by the Plate Department and Plate Commission.
WHAT ARE THE CASES WHERE TÜRSAB QR CODE PLATE CANNOT BE OBTAINED?
If the travel agency has an open disciplinary file in the Disciplinary Board, plate applications cannot be made and new plate printing will not be carried out until the disciplinary file is closed.
If the travel agency has a report taken by the inspection personnel due to Document Rental activities within the current calendar year, the file will be sent to the legal department, and if the legal department forwards the file to the Disciplinary Board or provides an opinion, the Disciplinary Board Decision will be taken. The travel agency cannot make new plate applications and new plate printing will not be carried out for the agency until the decision is issued.
WHAT IS A CAPACITY REPORT? WHY IS IT REQUESTED?
A capacity report is a document that defines the number of passengers carried and the work performed by a travel agency. It is requested to ensure restrictions are put in place to prevent excessive circulation of licenses and to determine the market competition conditions.
