More specifically, Georgian nationals arriving in Georgia as of 1 February will have the option of providing a negative PCR test and self-isolating for 8 days or, instead of self -isolating, taking a second PCR test at their own expense, on the third day from their arrival, and thus exempt themselves from the obligation to self-isolate. For Georgian nationals entering the territory of Georgia by air without providing a negative PCR test, the period of self-isolation will be reduced from 12 to 8 days.

As for foreign visitors to Georgia, they can freely enter the territory of the country if they provide COVID-19 vaccine certificates saying that they have received two full doses of vaccines. The same will apply to the crew.

Non-vaccinated visitors, who are nationals or residents of the EU, Israel, Switzerland, the U.S., Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain will not need to self-isolate. Upon entry to Georgia, including through transit, they will have to provide a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before their arrival and then take a second PCR test at their own expense, on the third day from their arrival. The same will apply to the crew (if there are citizens from the listed countries above) .

Regarding other nationalities with purpose of business travel:

It should be noted that in order to promote economic activity in Georgia, business visits from all countries will be carried out smoothly in advance, by filling in the relevant form and in agreement with the relevant sectoral agency.
