I'm planning to visit Georgia next month, and I have refugee travel document issued by the German government (Blue Travel Document). Do I need visa to enter Georgia ?

  • What does it say on the back page?

It seems you don't:

Please, note that validity of your travel document/passport should extend at least for three months after the validity of requested Georgian visa.

The stateless person must select the country according to the travel document.

For Germany the response at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia is:

You are exempt from visa!

Based on country and type of travel document you have selected, you are exempt from visa. To Find out the conditions of your visa free travel please visit Georgian VISA Information.


As stated by Timatic, the database used by airlines:

Visa required, except for:

  • Passengers with a Travel Document (Convention of 28 July 1951) issued to refugees, with a resident permit or visa issued by the country which issued the Travel Document for a maximum stay of 90 days.

Note that the fact that the document is issued by Germany contitutes a "resident permit" for Germany in and of itself.

So no, you do not need a visa.
