Since  July 8 when Russia’s travel ban was lunched , 145,748 Russian citizens have crossed the Russian-Georgian border which is 13, 7% less than in the same period of 2018, a study conducted by TBC Research says.

135,938 of them   arrived in the country by road which is 6, 4% more than in the same period of 2018.

There are no exact data on  how many of these visitors are tourists and how many  transit travelers given that a  lot of  Russian citizens travel to Armenia through Georgia.

9,665 visitors arrived to the country by air, which is 76% less than in the same period of 2018.


TBC Research shows that despite the travel ban,  Georgia’s tourism sector keeps growing although at a slower pace and expects  a 5% growth in  2019 as the number of tourists from other countries has increased and  a decline  in the number of guests from Russia turned out to be less than expected.

There are no official statistics yet, the National Tourism Administration is supposed to publish its data  in the coming days.
