57 Georgians deported from Germany

57 citizens of Georgia were expelled from Germany due to violation of the visa liberalization rules which allows Georgians to stay in the Shengen Zone for 90 days in a 180-day period. They were deported to Georgia by a special flight on 1 August.

The deportation of Georgians from Germany and other EU countries is usually carried out once a month by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia, German Federal Police and European Border and Coast Guard Agency Frontex.

As reported earlier, Germany has approved a bill putting Georgia on the safe country list, which means that Georgians will no longer have the right to seek asylum there.
