Five months after tightening visa and migration regulations, Georgia launched online visa application for travelers visiting Georgia for tourism and business.
Application for a short-term, single entry visa for citizens of those countries with which Georgia has no visa free rules is available on evisa.gov.ge website.
Applicants must submit a photo, a copy of their passport, proof of accommodation, round flight ticket, travel insurance, proof of financial means and USD 50 fee, plus 2% service fee; they will no longer be required to present documents to Georgian embassies or consular offices. It will take up to 10 days to get e-visa, according to information available on the website.
Georgia maintains visa free rules for citizens of about 104 countries and territories. Starting from September 1, 2014 citizens of these countries are able to stay in the country without visa for maximum of 90 days in any 180-day period, instead of previous 360 days.
