Georgia will open its borders unconditionally to following EU countries – Germany, France, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.
According to the Advisor to the Prime Minister, Irakli Chikovani, the citizens/residents of the 5 countries above can only use direct flights to Georgia for any type of visit.
The Government Administration has released the following information:
🔴 Before crossing Georgia’s border, they must fill a special e-form and list their travel history in the course of previous 14 days, also the location of their stay in Georgia, contact information, and others.
🔴 With their consent, or in case thermal screening on the border reveals a temperature higher than 37°C , a PCR test will be performed at the airport.
🔴 Testing and quarantine will be mandatory for those with a history of travelling to high-risk non-EU member states in the course of the previous 14 days.
🔴 All persons arriving in Georgia will, throughout their stay, maintain proactive communication with and receive care from a special call centre group.
🔴 As for other EU member states, who have not opened borders to Georgia, the status quo will be maintained by Georgia as well. Besides the 5 countries above, in the case of countries listing Georgia as a safe country or imposing various types of restrictions, their citizens will be able to enter Georgia as long as they complete a 14-day quarantine period at their own expense.
🔴 Besides the 5 countries above, work on relevant procedures continue with the countries that have unconditionally opened their borders to Georgia.
🔴 At this point, the following countries have not opened their borders to Georgia: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Norway, Malta, Finland, Switzerland, Czechia, Slovakia, and Hungary. Notably, a joint commission with Hungary has been established to work on the issue of movement reopening.
🔴 Some countries (Italy, Cyprus, Iceland, and Slovenia) are ready to open their borders with certain restrictions, including a mandatory 14-day quarantine period for arrivals.
The Government Administration added that the recommendations and the list of safe countries published by the EU will be reviewed every other week.
