Wedding for foreigners in slow reopening ?


Last March 2020 nobody was expecting  the situation was going so negative for the hundreds foreigners couples wishing to get married in Tbilisi.

Update 28 October 2020

At today , Georgia is not open for regular international flights till 1st November 2020. This date has been already postponed  several times and apparently will be again postponed having a look to the world pandemic situation. Let’s cross fingers.

At the moment Georgia is out the green list of safe countries due to the high daily cases since the mid of October.

Only arrivals from the following countries by selected and authorized direct flights are allowed:

  • Germany 🇩🇪
  • France 🇫🇷
  • Latvia 🇱🇻
  • Lithuania 🇱🇹
  • Estonia 🇪🇪

All travellers are required to fill in a pre-registration form before travel.  Except citizens/Resident in those 5 countries, everybody arriving in Georgia is required to self-quarantine 12 days at their expenses.

Updated on 08, September, 2020: According to the decision of the Interagency Coordination Council, all foreigners entering Georgia, including from those 5 countries which Georgia has opened borders unconditionally (Germany, France, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia), will be required to present PCR test results from the proceeding 72 hours as of September 15.

Update on 09, September: Social gatherings of more than 10 people as wedding will be banned in Georgia starting from the 10th September.  So only the couple with the 2 witnesses and one photographer can be allowed. Facial mask is mandatory.

Georgia does not reopen borders with No-Eu countries, with business visit being the only exception.

You can find the Frequently asked question going to the official Governament website at this link.

It should be noted that the rules imposed by countries are constantly being reviewed, so a citizen must have a close look at the rules of a host country before purchasing an air ticket and departing.

Of course spending 8 days quarantine on arrival cannot be consider a normal holiday and this restriction requires  a staying of almost 3 weeks to perform the wedding procedure in Tbilisi for no resident people.

This update is dated 28th, October, 2020.

Next update  will be on 07th November or before if Government will announce any changement.
