Georgian health resorts ready to welcome foreigners after border opening

Residents of neighbouring countries can come to Georgia for treatment and rest through the land borders that opened on June 1. Hotels are warning guests to comply with coronavirus restrictions.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the land Georgian-Russian border was closed on March 16, 2020. After the opening of the borders, Georgian authorities expect an increase in the number of tourists.

Foreign citizens can enter Georgia after undergoing a full vaccination against coronavirus and a negative PCR test result.

The most popular among foreigners is the Borjomi balneological resort, known for its mineral springs with healing properties.

"Borjomi is a brand, developed infrastructure, good and comfortable conditions," said Khatuna, the owner of a travel company.

At the balneological resort of Tskhaltubo, visitors are attracted by the healing mineral waters containing nitrogen and radon, which are used for baths and inhalations.

In hotels, you must wear medical masks and maintain social distance.

Many foreigners visiting Georgian resorts fail to observe the mask regime and pose a risk of worsening the epidemiological situation, the head of the National Centre for Disease Control said on May 30, calling for tougher control over mask wearing.
