According to the Interagency Coordinating Council's decision, due to the new strain of coronavirus in the UK, citizens of all countries with a history of traveling to the UK during the last 14 days will be subject to a 12-day mandatory quarantine upon entry in Georgia.
The Interagency Coordination Council made the relevant decision at today's meeting, which took place at the Government Administration under the chairmanship of Prime Minister candidate Giorgi Gakharia.
As Berdia Sichinava, the Deputy Chief of Operations at the Interagency Coordination Council, said at a briefing after the meeting; it should be noted that the UK is not among the 18 countries defined by government decree whose citizens and permanent residents were allowed to enter the country directly. Georgia does not have direct air traffic with Great Britain for now.
"Accordingly, this decision applies to Georgian citizens, business visitors who have had a history of traveling to the UK during the last 14 days, as well as all citizens or residents of those 18 countries who are allowed to enter our country under certain conditions," Sichinava said.
