New rules for all airline passengers to Georgia will begin to apply from 1 February 2021
The Prime Minister-led Inter-Agency Coordination Council has introduced new rules for all airline passengers (both Georgian and foreign nationals) to Georgia. The rules will begin to apply from 1 February 2021.
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.
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 rules already applying to land borders will remain in force.
