Tourism will reopen in Georgia through so-called 'safe corridors' to ensure an organised inflow of foreign visitors from countries which have positive results in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, says the Vice Prime Minister of Georgia and the country's Minister of Infrastructure Maia Tskitishvili. 

We will reopen tourism through so-called 'safe corridors' . We have active negotiations with Israel, Austria, Baltic countries and other countries who are successfully leading the fight against the virus and have low numbers of infected people. We are working to bring tourists from these countries. First of all, their arrival will be organised. Our Tourism Administration and the Ministry of Health will make sure that hotels follow safety rules and, in addition, tour operators are responsible for the care of tourists brought by them", said Tskitishvili. 

She said that it is important to restore all the sectors of the economy, including tourism, but this should be done carefully, gradually and at a rate that will allow the healthcare system of Georgia to regulate the process.
