All COVID -19 travel restrictions have been lifted in Georgia, News.az reports, citing a document posted on the Legislative Herald of Georgia website.
A relevant amendment was made in the Decree of the Government of Georgia No. 322 “On Approving the Rules for Isolation and Quarantine” dated May 23, 2020.
According to it, from June 15, 2022, all Georgian citizens and foreign visitors will not have to present COVID -19 vaccination certificates or negative PCR test results when entering the country.
This means that tourists can now enter Georgia by air, land or sea, regardless of their vaccination status.
Prior to this announcement, travelers had to follow a series of entry protocols.
For example, tourists who had received a Covid 19 vaccination certificate could enter without having to undergo any testing or quarantine.
But, those who were not fully vaccinated were required to provide proof of a negative PCR test conducted within 72 hours prior to their scheduled flight to Georgia.
Unlike some other countries, Georgia did not recognize a certificate of recovery.
The country has now joined the list of neighboring countries that have lifted entry restrictions. Turkey and Armenia, for example, also recently lifted ALL of their Covid-related entry requirements.
This means that Eastern Europe is now the most open region in the world when it comes to Covid-related entry requirements.
Even though Georgia is not located in Eastern Europe, tourists wishing to visit this part of the world will be pleased to learn that another nearby country has also lifted its remaining Covid-related entry requirements.
