According to the Minister of Health Ekaterine Tikaradze, the IT service of the Ministry Work has begun on a green passport that would allow citizens vaccinated against the Covid-19 vaccine to enjoy certain benefits (e.g., not be subject to travel restrictions, entry restrictions to other countries, etc.).
 
Mrs. Tikaraze said, all this monitoring may be related to certain problems, so Georgia is studying the best practices of other countries.
 
"We have started working on a green passport, our IT service is working on it. We take into account the best experience of Europe and other countries. We also consider that it is very important for the tourism sector to open in time and monitor visitors, so the passport we will develop will take into account some monitoring for local citizens and the presence of a green passport, as well as visitors who will be in the country," said the Minister.
