From June 1, Georgia will open land borders that have been closed for more than a year due to the coronavirus.


The Interdepartmental Coordinating Council for the Fight against Coronavirus under the Prime Minister of Georgia decided to open land borders with the nearest neighbors for travelers from June 1, which were closed since March 2020 due to the pandemic. This was announced on Tuesday at a briefing by the head of the council's operational headquarters Georgy Gibradze.

“The Coordinating Council decided to open land borders from 1 June. Land borders will open, and their crossing will be possible with a document confirming the completion of the full course of vaccination and with a negative response to the PCR test,” said Georgy Gibradze. According to him, if at the entrance to Georgia a person cannot present a document confirming the completion of the full course of vaccination, at the border he will be able to show a certificate of a negative PCR test done within 72 hours, and also accept an obligation to retake the test within three days.< br>
The Government of Georgia also recommends that foreigners who decide to visit the republic through the land border, have health insurance with them in order to avoid the financial costs associated with possible treatment for coronavirus infection.

Georgia completely lifted the ban on February 1 for regular flights, which has been in effect since March 2020. All travelers who have completed a full course of vaccination against coronavirus can arrive in the country by air. Citizens of Russia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Bahrain, Belarus, Israel, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, UAE, Saudi Arabia, USA, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Switzerland and EU countries can enter Georgia without completing a full course of vaccination. It is enough for them to present a certificate of a negative PCR test for coronavirus at the border.

On Tuesday, the Interdepartmental Coordinating Council expanded the list of countries whose citizens can enter Georgia by air on the basis of a certificate of a negative test result. The list includes Canada, China, Kuwait, Moldova, Oman, South Korea and Japan.
