The Georgia e-health app is connected to the EU COVID certification system, plus 25 non-EU member states, and individuals are able to use it for travel in all EU and non-EU nations and territories that have joined the EU Digital COVID certificate system so far. These countries are:
The app can also be used within Georgia.
Individuals may obtain a printed form of the application in Georgian justice houses if they are unable to download it to their phones.
CovidPass Georgia can be used only in Georgia and has two functions – to allow individuals to check their COVID status and to allow various facilities to check the status of the individual via scanner installed in the application.
The app can be used by foreigners who enter Georgia from a country which is not in the EU certification system. The status of the individual will be identified at the border and they will be able to download the app and use it while in the country.
‘Green status’ is given to the following groups in Georgia:
Fully vaccinated individuals
Those who have recovered from coronavirus
Those with negative PCR test certificates conducted within the last 72 hours
People with negative rapid test results conducted within the last 24 hours
Those with COVID-19 passes will be allowed to enter various types of institutions, such as:
