Individuals will have to spend 12 days instead of 14 in quarantine or self isolation in Georgia, according to a new decree which comes into play starting August 12. 

The decree, which is valid through December 30, 2020, also reads that:

  • Foreign citizens or people entering Tbilisi-controlled territory from the Russian-occupied regions, or individuals who had contact with COVID-19 patients will have to spend 12 days in quarantine. 
  • Individuals entering the country on official visits must present the results of a coronavirus test conducted in the preceding 72 hours. These individuals must be tested for the coronavirus every 72 hours over the course of 12 days. 
  • If a PCR test shows that an individual (on an official visit) has already had the coronavirus, he/she will be free from additional tests while in Georgia.
