From now on, Georgian citizens no longer need a visa to travel to the Schengen Zone.

The regulation lifting visa requirements for Georgians entered into effect today, Tuesday, March 28.

The first travelers from Georgia have already crossed the EU border and are currently in the Greek capital of Athens – the cradle of the European civilization.

The team is among them to report our experiences of the new border-crossing process. We will also share the stories of other Georgians traveling to the EU visa-free for the first time on our social media channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #GeorgiaEUVisaFree.
