Ukraine and Georgia to simplify border crossing procedures

Ukraine and Georgia simplify border crossing procedures, which make it possible for their citizens to travel between the two countries without a passport, only with an ID card. The relevant agreement was signed on 5 October by the Heads of Government Volodymyr Groysman and Mamuka Bakhtadze in Chisinau within the framework of the GUAM Summit.

"The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the Government of Georgia are keen on further developing bilateral relations, promoting the strengthening of interpersonal communication and simplifying the movement regime between Ukraine and Georgia", the Preamble to the Agreement reads.

According to the agreement, Georgian and Ukrainian travelers do not need a visa to visit each other for a 90-day stay a year. They will only need an electronic ID card.
