Estonia has lifted entry restrictions for citizens of 14 non-EU countries including Georgia starting yesterday.
When crossing the Estonian border, passengers must fulfill the following requirements:

• when crossing the border, individuals must not have symptoms of COVID-19

• an individual must have been in the country from which he or she is travelling for the last 14 days

• if an individual enters Estonia from a country where there have been more than 16 infections for 100,000 people in the last 14 days, the passenger will be obliged to enter self-isolation for two weeks.

The Council of the European Union recommended lifting border restrictions for 14 other countries including Georgia starting July 1. However, the recommendation is not obligatory and member states have the option of opening their borders gradually and not for all countries at the same time.

Moreover, Germany has lifted entry restrictions for citizens of 11 non-EU countries including Georgia starting July 2.

However, Georgia will not allow regular international flights to resume until August 1, though local flights will be resumed in the near future.

The decision to resume regular air traffic will be made based on the epidemiological situation in the world and in Georgia, says the Georgian Civil Aviation Agency.
