Head of the National Center for Disease Control Amiran Gamkrelidze said that fully vaccinated individuals who want to enter Georgia will now need to present a negative PCR test result.

Until now citizens of all countries travelling by air could enter Georgia if they presented confirmation they had gone through the full schedule of any Covid-19 vaccination at border checkpoints of Georgia.

Gamkrelidze said that all travellers who want to enter Georgia must present a negative PCR test from the past 72 hours at the border and retest on the third day. Further self-isolation will not be required if the test returns negative.

Regular flights resumed in Georgia on February 1, while land borders will open on June 1, reported.
