Ekaterine Tikaradze: We've a lot of experience in how to conduct monitoring on the border - the process will be under full control

According to the Minister of Healthcare, Ekaterine Tikaradze, Georgia has gained a lot of experience in controlling the border, and therefore, it's expected that the process of opening borders to 5 countries will be well managed.

"We have a lot of experience in how to conduct monitoring on the border and how to reveal every case. Therefore, we expect that the process will be under full control and it won't cause any danger to our citizens. Due to this, we took a decision to restart travel with certain countries without any conditions. The visitors from those 5 countries will have to fill in certain data about their previous locations in the last 14 days. Accordingly, we'll have enough information about the visitors in question. If the visitor has a temperature, s/he will be PCR tested in the airport and the following measures will be taken only after it", - stated Tikaradze.

The Minister also noted that Georgian citizens who will travel to those 5 countries will have to go through 14-day quarantine once they come back.
