The government of Georgia is negotiating with international airlines airBaltic and Air France to resume air travel and regular flights with five EU member states with whom Georgia has unconditionally reopened its borders.

So far an agreement has been reached with Lufthansa to carry out two flights a week to Munich starting in August.

Travellers from these five countries will be able to come to Georgia for any purpose, but only through direct flights.

To note, all five countries have also opened their borders for Georgia.

Before crossing the Georgian border, travellers must fill out a specially designed electronic form in which they must indicate their travel history of the previous 14 days before entering Georgia and where he/she is going to stay in the country.

If a traveller's temperature exceeds 37 degrees Celsius at the border, they will be tested by PCR at the airport.

A 14-day quarantine will remain mandatory for those who have recently travelled to high-risk, non-EU member countries.

A special call-centre group will be in communication with all travellers that arrive in Georgia.

Visitors to Georgia on a business trip will be required to take a PCR test for coronavirus at their own expense every 72 hours, or to go through mandatory 14-day quarantine at their own expense. This does not apply to citizens / residents of the five EU member states with whom Georgia is unconditionally opening its borders.
