In December 2009, Turkey finalized legislation that required all cigarette packs to carry a pictorial health warning by July 2010. Fourteen health warnings were rotated on cigarette packages, and were required to cover 65% of the front and 43% of the back of packages (54% overall), including the border.

In 2012, Turkey increased the size of the health warnings. The warnings are now required to occupy 65% of both the front and back of the packages.

In December 2016, the Turkish Health Minister announced plans to introduce plain packaging in 2017.
