The Georgian government has announced a temporary, two-week closure of its borders for all foreign citizens, with exceptions, to avoid the further spread of the Covid-19 virus.

The ban will come into effect starting March 18, at 00:00.

The government says that Georgian citizens (and their family members) who want to come back to the country will be able to use the flights of Georgian Airways or Turkish Airlines.

Georgia and Turkey will maintain flights through March 20.

The ban came into effect today for Russian citizens.
