Citizens of Ukraine and several other countries will be able to visit Georgia from March 1 if they have a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours.

People arriving in Georgia must be re-tested for COVID-19 at their own expense on the third day of their stay in the country, according to Radio Free Europe.

Prime Minister of Georgia Irakli Garibashvili explained that these measures apply to those who cross the Georgian border by air. Land borders remain closed to foreigners.

In addition to Ukrainians, citizens of Azerbaijan, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Russia and Belarus will also be able to come to Georgia.

As reported, Georgia and Ukraine on Tuesday organised an online roundtable on "Deoccupation of Ukraine and Georgia: joint efforts of both States, International Organizations and Civil Society Institutions."
