Foreigners wishing to enter Georgia can apply for a short term e-Visa
Georgia’s electronic e-Visa portal went online on the 10th of February 2015. This system enables foreigners coming to Georgia as tourists or for business to obtain an e-Visa without having to apply to Georgia’s consular offices abroad.
People wishing to obtain an e-Visa must go to www.evisa.gov.ge.
Before filling out the online application form, every applicant must familiarize him or herself with the detailed information regarding the rules and terms which apply to e-Visas. This information is available on the portal’s “frequently asked questions” (FAQ) page.
People applying for an e-Visa must go through 3 stages:
1) registering their application;
2) paying for the e-Visa online;
3) printing out the e-Visa.
At the end of the first stage, i.e. when the e-Visa application has been registered, an email explaining the terms which apply to entering Georgia and containing a link for online payment will be sent to the address which the applicant provided.
After paying for the e-Visa online, and if the application is successful, the e-Visa will be sent to the applicant’s email address. It must be printed out and presented along with other valid travelling documents when entering Georgia.
Depending on the applicant’s nationality, there may be different requirements in terms of travelling documents, and the duration of the e-Visa’s validity may vary. Applicants are advised to familiarize themselves with these requirements; detailed information can be consulted during the registration process.
If applicants encounter technical difficulties when filling out their online application forms, they may contact the Consular Department for assistance by email firstname.lastname@example.org or on the hot line (+995 32 294 50 50 from abroad).
Detailed information is available on the e-Visa portal: www.evisa.gov.ge.
Applying for an e-Visa is easy: all the applicant needs is an internet connection. This new service is expected to increase the number of tourists and business visitors to Georgia.
The e-Visa Service is used in many countries: Turkey, Australia, Vietnam, Singapore, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Kingdom of Bahrain, Kingdom of Cambodia, etc.
