When I jumped on the spontaneous decision to go to Georgia, honestly, I was mostly drawn to their world-class wine. It was one of the best spontaneous decisions I’ve ever made. I was in Georgia for three weeks and was able to travel almost everywhere, even tried to do paragliding for the first time. I hope this Georgia visa guide will be useful for you and I hope that you will enjoy your trip out there!

Hi Mary,

I am from America, and can enter Georgia without a visa for 365 days. Just have questions on the details, can I leave and reenter the country without a problem?

And what are my options if I want to stay in Georgia for over 365 days? Is there a way I can reset the 365 days for another year? Perhaps a visa hopping option?

Thanks, Corito

    Hi Corito,

    I believe you can simply leave the country and enter again. Perhaps stay out for a week or two. The immigration is pretty chill but they might ask why you stayed for too long and why you’re coming back. If you are thinking to work there or leave there, perhaps it’s best to get a work visa. Unfortunately, I don’t have much information about this. I only know about travel visas.

    I wish I can be more help. If you have more questions, I’ll try to answer as much as I can.

    – Mary

    Hi Clara, you don’t need a visa to enter Georgia as long as your work permit from UAE is still valid and you must bring your residential/work permit to enter Georgia together with accommodation and flight details.

Hi Mary,

Great info! Thanks for sharing!

What is the best flight to Georgia from Manila?

And do you need to apply for a visa if you go to Baku from Georgia?

    Mary Charie - 30/05/2018

    Hi, I think there are flights connecting in the middle east. You need to secure a visa for Azerbaijan beforehand.

Hi Mary,

I have a valid 5-year multiple Japan visa in my old recently passport. Now I have just renewed my passport. Now I always bring these 2 passports with me during travel. Do you think the valid Japan visa in the old passport will be recognized by Georgian immigration in Tbilisi airport? Thank you.

    Mary Charie - 29/01/2018

    If it’s still valid, I believe it should be okay! If you have money to spare, try to secure an evisa too! It’s only 20$.

    Hope this help!

Hi Mary! I read somewhere that if you have a South Korea visa (with PH passport), you will be exempted from getting a Georgia visa? Just wanted to confirm before i go through the hassle of getting an e-Visa. LOL

    Hi Candy,

    I confirm that you can bypass the visa of Georgia if you have a valid visa to South Korea. I also just updated my article. Thanks for letting me know x

Hi Mary,
Hope All is well.
I’m a Philippine Passport holder basing in Riyadh Saudi Arabia and holding GCC Residence ID.

I will be visiting Georgia, Tbilisi this weekend.
In this regard would like to know if its necessary to bring my Iquama ID in Georgia, Tbilisi during my 5 days visit?
Coz upon my company policy, will going to leave our Iquama ID to company admin during the travel in order us to get exit and re entry visa to be issued by them.
And also, would like to ask if I can use and withdraw cash using my Cirrus type Bank of the Philippine Island ATM card in Georgia?

Thank you and looking forward to your positive response

Warm Regards,

Json

    Hi Json.

    Thanks for your message. If it’s a requirement to leave you Iqama ID, perhaps you have other IDs that can prove that you hold a GCC Residencem if not, I suggest you photocopy your Iqama ID before flying to Georgia. Make sure to screenshot or save the resource pages that can prove that you do not need a visa to Georgia, so you have something to show to the IM Officer.¨

    I don’t think you can use your Cirrus card, a visa and MasterCard are better, however, don’t take my word for it. I was using a visa card when I was there.

    Hope this helps!

Hi there folks, hi mary charie
Try also to visit Azerbaijan, beautiful and very nice people. You won’t regret it. Azeri foods are so tasty and people are still lingering around the area even past midnight, safety of traveller is secured and if you are lost along the way, they are there and very eager to assist you, one of it’s nice place is the NIZAMI or the Fountain Square.

    Hey Manuel, thank you for such amazing advice! I also read that VOA in Azerbaijan cost only $45-50 right? It’s definitely on the list!

Georgia (capital Tbilisi) is a nice place..i’ve been there for one week and i travel to their famous winter ski resort located in Gudauri, it is in the mountain region , the other place to visit in GEorgia is Kazbegi.

Hi Mary! Wow I would like to go to Georgia! May I ask if I’m eligible for the e-visa? I’m a filipino. My visa in Australia was already expired last year. Can I still apply for e-visa? Thank you so much!

Reply
    Mary Charie - 10/05/2017

    Hello Queenie, you can always apply for an e-visa. Regardless if you hold a valid or expired Australian visa 🙂

    Hi Mary! Can you help me out? I read that I need to provide proof of sufficient funds for my travel in Georgia at the immigration in the airport. What exactly is that? Credit card? Cash on hand? Bank certificate? What did you show/provide to the immigration officer? Thank you!

    Reply
    Mary Charie - 23/05/2017

    Hi Queenie, I was not asked to show any proof of funds however, I always bring bank statement with me. Hope this helps! 🙂

I did not know Georgia made wine! Hmmm, might have to organise a trip!

    Meg, Georgia is famous in wine, after visa stamping on your passport, the immigration officer will handover you a bottle of wine as a gesture of their warm welcome.
