All About the Georgia Visa From Pakistan
If you’re asking yourself “Do Pakistani citizens need a visa for Georgia?”, then the answer is yes. Visitors from Pakistan need to obtain an embassy visa from a diplomatic government office of Georgia in advance of travel.
Once approved, your pass will be valid for Single-Entry use for up to 30 days. You can also request a Multi-Entry authorisation if you have visited the country at least once during the previous year and if you have grounds to make your request.
The only exceptions to this are Pakistani nationals who hold a valid residence permit from another country. This include permits from the USA, UK, EEA, Canada, New Zealand and the UAE. In this case, you can stay for up to 90 days in a 180-day period visa-free.
How to Get a Georgia Visa from Pakistan
When making your application, you will need to head to the E-Application System.
The system allows you to submit an e-application so you can book a time slot for the submission of your application at the consular office or embassy. You need to deliver your application in person.
After your application is submitted through the system, hard copies of the signed visa application and all other documents necessary need to be submitted to the issuing authority by submitting them directly in person.
