Georgia closes entry for foreigners

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Georgia has been closing borders for foreigners since March 18 for two weeks, with the exception for special cases.

According to Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani, the ban on entry into the country will not affect workers of diplomatic missions accredited in Georgia, members of international organizations and their families. Also, this will not affect mixed families, if one of the spouses or the child is a citizen of another country.

"The ban will not apply if the need for humanitarian missions arrives in Georgia, I mean doctors and volunteers. And also for people with neutral documentary status or refugee status in Georgia," Zalkaliani said.

In the case of the arrival of foreign delegations, the issue of their admission to the territory of the country will be considered individually.
