At this point, Georgia is opening its borders without reservation to 5 of the 27 EU member states, namely Germany, France, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
Citizens/permanent residents of said 5 countries can use only air travel for any kind of visit to Georgia, traveling from one of said 5 countries. For example, Latvian citizens/permanent residents can travel from Germany to Georgia without reservation.
Before crossing Georgia’s border, they are obligated to fill in a special electronic form and describe their 14-day travel history prior to arriving in Georgia, also the location of their stay in Georgia, contact information, and others.
With their consent, a PCR test at the state’s expense will be performed at the airport.
If thermal screening on the border reveals a temperature higher than 370C, visitors will be hospitalized.
Citizens of the EU member states (Italy, Cyprus, Greece, Spain, Sweden, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, and Croatia) listing Georgia as a green country (besides the 5 countries above), or of those enforcing different types of restrictions, will be able to enter Georgia as long as they complete a 14-day quarantine period at their own expense.
If citizens/permanent residents of the 5 countries above arrive by air from an EU state enjoying conditional open borders with Georgia (Italy, Cyprus, Greece, Spain, Sweden, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, and Croatia), or from countries that do not enjoy open borders with Georgia, or if their 14-day travel history includes countries other than the 5 listed above, will be asked to complete a 14-day quarantine period at their own expense.
As for other EU member states that have not opened borders to Georgia (Slovenia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Malta, Slovakia, Finland, Hungary, Norway, Czechia, and Croatia), the status quo will be maintained by Georgia as well.
Importantly, business trips from all countries of the world will be allowed without reservation, based on a completed special form and coordination with relevant sectoral agencies. Business visitors to Georgia are obligated to complete a PCR test for COVID-19 at their own expense every 72 hours, or complete a mandatory 14-day quarantine, also at their own expense. That does not apply to the citizens/residents of the 5 countries enjoying unconditional border reopening with Georgia.
The Government of Georgia continues active cooperation with partner EU member states. Based on the relevant recommendation, the rules for entering Georgia and for Georgian citizens entering various EU states will be reviewed jointly once every other week.
