Covid-19 ‘green’ passes have come into force in Georgia starting today, obliging the public to present proof of vaccination, testing or recovery from Covid-19 when entering certain establishments.

Restaurants, cafes and bars will operate in Georgia without hourly restrictions starting today due to the introduction of the passes.
Georgia has created two special applications for Covid passes - CovidPass Georgia and Georgia e-Health.
CovidPass Georgia may be used by both Georgian and foreign citizens (who are in Georgia) to attend various events or enter the facilities mentioned above, while Georgia e-Health will be mostly used during travels in foreign countries (by Georgian citizens) to ensure the entry in the 51 countries which are present in the EU digital Covid certification system.
The Georgian Health Ministry says that the Georgia e-Health app may also be used in Georgia to enter the facilities where green Covid passports are required.
The Georgian citizens are also able to take the green passes at justice houses.
