The protection which is granted to Syrian nationals who have arrived at or crossed our borders in masses is “temporary protection” according to international literature.
In the framework of international and customary law, Turkey provides temporary protection to Syrian nationals within the following three factors:
Clean acceptance to Turkey within the open border policy
Implementation of the non-refoulement principle without exceptions
Meeting basic needs of newly-arrived Syrians in Turkey
Temporary protection shall be granted in the framework of Article 91 of Law No. 6458 on Foreigners and International Protection (YUKK) dated 04/04/2013 and Temporary Protection Regulation (Council of Ministers Decision No: 2014/6883)
