Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree according to which the visa regime for citizens of Georgia is canceled from May 15. The ban on flights to Georgia for Russian airlines is also lifted.

Putin lifts ban on Russian airlines flying to Georgia

Direct flights between Georgia and Russia stopped almost four years ago. Putin then signed a decree banning those flights for airlines from both countries due to protests against the Kremlin’s policies in Tbilisi.

The ban on air traffic between Georgia and Russia has been in force since July 8, 2019.

As previously reported, Russians accounted for a third of Georgian immigrants in 2022. More than 62,000 people moved to Georgia from Russia last year. The country has become one of the most popular destinations for Russians wishing to leave the Russian Federation.
