Action Asia - - GEORGIA -

When to go

Sum­mers are hot, es­pe­cially in the cen­tral low­lands, so many choose to es­cape to the Black Sea coast or into the moun­tains at that time. Bet­ter yet, come in May/june or Septem­ber, for more mod­er­ate con­di­tions. In gen­eral, the west of Ge­or­gia is warmer yet wet­ter than the east.

How to get there

There are few direct flights from Asia to the Cau­ca­sus: you must con­nect through Moscow or one of the Gulf hubs. Emi­rates of­fer the most flights, ac­cess­ing Tbil­isi, as well as the neigh­bour­ing cap­i­tals of Yere­van (Ar­me­nia) and Baku (Azer­bai­jan).

Fur­ther info

Ge­or­gia has the most re­laxed visa pol­icy in the re­gion. Most na­tion­al­i­ties ei­ther need no visa, or can ob­tain one elec­tron­i­cally. Ar­me­nia and Azer­bai­jan are more strin­gent but should present few ma­jor prob­lems.
