All foreigners entering Georgia, including from Germany, France, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia to which Georgia has opened borders unconditionally, will be required to present PCR test results from the proceeding 72 hours as of September 15, announced Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia. 

Gakharia said that the decision was made in order to protect the health of Georgian citizens, as we well as foreigners.

In addition, Gakharia announced that the government is decreasing the time of quarantine and from now on individuals entering Georgia will have to spend eight days instead of 12 in quarantine in Georgia.

After eight days, people placed in quarantine will take a PCR test and if the result is negative, they will be able to leave quarantine. However, they will still be obliged to take a second PCR test three days later. If the result of the repeat PCR test is positive on the 12th day, individuals will be hospitalised if needed. If hospitalisation is not needed, then the individual will be placed under quarantine and will continue treatment under the supervision of doctors.

Georgia has reported 34 new cases of the coronavirus earlier today and five recoveries.
