Georgia’ Ministry of Foreign Affairs warns Georgian citizens abroad not to trust promises made by private individuals or political groups. According to the information released by the Ministry, certain individuals and political groups make false promises to Georgian citizens via social networks.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs calls on Georgian citizens abroad to plan the travel itinerary only with the assistance of Georgian diplomatic missions.
“Certain individuals and groups, including political groups, have been promising our citizens to help in returning to Georgia. These persons request personal information via social networks. We ask you to bear in mind that high level of the spread of coronavirus worldwide has created significant problems for international travel.
Most countries have closed borders and international travel is halted or severely restricted. Consequently, the promises made by private individuals are false and may further aggravate the situation.
Given the current situation, we encourage you to show caution and plan your itinerary only with the assistance of Georgian diplomatic missions to avoid further undesirable complications. According to the instruction of the Coordination Council led by the Prime Minister, Georgian missions oversees are working 24 hours a day to assist Georgian citizens residing abroad,” reads the statement of the Foreign Ministry.
