From today, December 1, “Green Passports” have come into force in Georgia.
Based on the decision of the Coordination Council, citizens will be able to enter different facilities only with green passports. This requirement applies only to visitors and not to the people working there.
“Green” status is granted to those fully vaccinated, those who have passed a 72-hour-validity PCR or 24-hour-validity antigen test, and those who have recovered from coronavirus. Green Passports will be required of all citizens over 18.
“Green Passport only” admission applies to the following: eateries, restaurants, cafes, and bars (both outdoor and indoor), cinemas, theaters, opera houses, museums, concert halls, entertainment centers, casinos and gambling sites, spa centers, fitness clubs, hotels, and aerial lifts in winter resorts. In entertainment centers for children, Green Passports are mandatory for all citizens aged over 18.
The institution is responsible for admitting a person with non-green status to the facility. In case of violation of the rule, the sanction is 10,000 GEL for a legal entity and 2,000 GEL for an individual entrepreneur. In case of recurrence of the offense, the facility will be sealed.
From today, restaurants will have their hourly restrictions lifted, and the number of spectators allowed in cinemas, theaters, and operas will increase from 30 to 50%.
