Israel and Georgia have established a visa-free regime on February 12. Their citizens can visit each other’s countries for 90 days without visas.

Israeli Deputy Interior Minister Faina Kirschenbaum and Georgian Interior Minister Irakly Garibashvili (currently Prime Minister) signed an agreement to adopt a visa-free regime in Tbilisi on November 18, 2013.

It was noted during Garibashvili’s recent visit to Israel that the tourism flow kept growing. Israel is an important pilgrimage destination for Israel, where Georgians can visit Christian sites and the tomb of poet Shota Rustaveli.
