Georgian citizens will be able to go to work in Turkey, but when they return they will have to quarantine for 14 days, announces the Chairman of the Government of Adjara Tornike Rijvadze.

Rijvadze explained that all citizens wishing to go to work in Turkey will be required to submit an official three-month invitation issued by an employer from Turkey.

Recently, a number of protests took place in Adjara in which participants demanded the Georgian government open the border closed due to the coronavirus pandemic in order to go to work in Turkey.

Last week Agriculture Minister Levan Davitashvili announced that citizens of Georgia who used to do seasonal work abroad before the pandemic may be able to find seasonal jobs in their home country, noting seasonal workers will be needed in the agriculture sector of Georgia and in the regions of Kakheti, Kartli and Samegrelo.
