Georgia visa requirements for GCC residents
According to the newest updates Georgia is open for visitors from Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), that includes following countries —Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman.
So we would like to share visa requirements for residents of those countries.
People who have residence permit(Iqama) of above-mentioned countries are eligible to receive visa of Georgia on arrival. But there are some exceptions for certain nationalities, such as Syrians, Afghans and Palestinians. Due to political issue, people born in those countries can’t visit Georgia without visa. Having residence permit of any GCC countries doesn’t make much of difference for them.
