Georgian Parliament has approved the legislative changes in the third reading, which will impose new regulations on travel to EU countries within the framework of visa liberalisation.
The draft law defines the cases when a citizen of Georgia may be refused to cross the border.
If Georgian citizen does not obtain:
- Valid biometric passport
- Round-trip ticket
- Booking of the hotel/apartment or other documents; address of the host who obtains legal residence in the EU/Schengen area
- Travel insurance
- Proof of funds
In addition to the above, if a citizen creates conditions to abuse the right to asylum in a foreign country, she/he will face imprisonment for a term of three to six years.
