Georgia could let tourist groups from China enter the country without a visa and China could do the same for Georgian tourists.

Tourism and foreign officials of Georgia and China met in Beijing for a consultation meeting to discuss future cooperation to develop bilateral tourism.

"The sides agreed to continue consultations about resuming the 1994 agreement between Georgia and China about visa-free travel for tour groups, which will increase the tourist flows between the two countries,” said Georgia’s Foreign Ministry in a statement today.

The officials also agreed to hold working meetings on a regular basis and create a relevant action plan that would address ways to increase cross-country tourism.

The Ministry also said the Chinese side pledged to support events that promoted Georgia as a tourist destination among Chinese travellers.
