COVID-19 updates

On this page we’re sharing the updates on the current COVID-19 situation in Georgia, related to tourism.

Last updated: 21 February 2022


Flexible cancellation policy

Given the unpredictable circumstances of the pandemic, we have introduced a flexible cancellation policy, as a compromise for all affected travellers. We are providing this flexible cancellation option as it’s very possible that anyone who has a booking or is thinking of booking may not be able to go through with their holiday plans in the end.

  • If you cancel your booking more than 30 days in advance you will receive the full deposit back. You can also rebook for other dates, provided there is availability.
  • If you cancel your booking between 30 days and 48 hours in advance we will issue a travel credit voucher equal to the deposit amount, that you can use for any future booking (this voucher is personal).
  • If you cancel within 48 hours before the booking, we will keep your deposit as a cancellation fee. 

This policy will remain in force as long as COVID is affecting international travel.  

Entry rules as of May 2021

Any person traveling from any country (by air) with a proof of full vaccination can enter Georgia freely. There is no need for PCR tests. A EU-style COVID vaccination proof will suffice.
Land borders opened on 1st of June 2021, and a PCR test is required even if you are vaccinated.

For non-vaccinated travellers, residents of the following countries can enter Georgia with a PCR test not older than 72 hours.

  • All EU member states
  • Israel

  • Turkey
  • Armenia, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Moldova, Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus

On the third day after entry another PCR test needs to be taken, the costs are around 80GEL per person (~ €25). This can be done on many locations in Tbilisi or in the regions (see for example: https://synevo.ge/laboratories/ and a list of all testing labs: https://stopcov.ge/en/PCR)
You do not have to quarantine during the first 3 days.

Children under 10 years old are exempted from PCR test requirements to enter Georgia and on the third day after arrival.
