Georgia – Level 1: Exercise Normal Precautions Advisory Issued January 4, 2019

Exercise normal precautions in Georgia. Some areas have increased risk. Read the entire Travel Advisory.

Do not travel to:

  • The Russian-occupied regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia due to risk of civil unrest, crime, and landmines.

Read the Safety and Security section on the country information page.

If you decide to travel to Georgia:

South Ossetia and Abkhazia

Russian troops and border guards occupy both South Ossetia and Abkhazia. The precise locations of administrative boundary lines are difficult to identify. Entering the occupied territories will likely result in your arrest, imprisonment, and/or a fine. Violent attacks, criminal incidents, and kidnappings occur in the region. Landmines pose a danger to travelers near the boundary lines of both territories. 

The U.S. government is unable to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens traveling in South Ossetia and Abkhazia, as U.S. government employees are restricted from traveling there.
