Georgia was open to US tourists briefly in 2020 and reopened again in January 2021. The 2021 season was a record-setting one for us in Georgia, with many travelers discovering the delights of the Caucasus region.

Entry Requirements

There are no test requirements to enter Georgia.

Antigen or PCR Testing for Returning Home

If you need to get tested for your journey home, whether it is required by the airline or for re-entry into the U.S. we will help you schedule that at the most convenient location possible, at the appropriate time. For re-entry to the US you need to have a negative result from a Covid-19 viral test up to 3 days before departure (not counting the day of departure, so for a flight at 1pm on a Friday, you could board with a negative test that was taken any time on the prior Tuesday or after.) Since May 12 2021, the CDC have approved Antigen tests for travel. Antigen tests are quicker (results in 30 minutes, not 24 hours), cheaper (around 1/3 the price or less) than PCR tests, and more readily available. As Georgia does not have any direct flights to the US you will need to consider the testing requirement of the airline you are flying with, and the requirements of the country you are transferring through as these can vary, and may mean a PCR test is essential after all.
