Georgia unilaterally scrapped visa-free entry to Iranian citizens starting from July 1, according to the Georgian Foreign Ministry.
Georgia and Iran signed an agreement on 45-day visa-free travel rules in November, 2010 when then Foreign Minister of Iran visited Georgia.
The agreement went into force in late January, 2011, which contributed to increase in number of visits from Iran to Georgia from about 21,300 in 2010 to over 89,600 in 2012.
Starting from July 1, 2013 Iranian citizens will have to obtain Georgian visas, but Iran has not yet revoked visa-free rules for the Georgian citizens.
