In a recent development, China and Georgia have formally announced their agreement to grant visa-free travel between the two countries.

What was initially reported by That's in March as a possibility has now become a reality!

Starting from April 10, 2024, holders of valid Georgian ordinary passports or valid People's Republic of China ordinary passports can enjoy visa-free entry, exit, or transit between the two countries. 

Travelers are permitted a single stay of up to 30 days, with a cumulative stay not exceeding 90 days within every 180-day period.

Following the lead of countries like Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand, Georgia is the latest nation to reciprocate visa exemption agreements with China.
