UAE ministry investigating ‘ill-treatment’ of Emiratis at Georgia’s airports

Georgia has become a popular summer travel destination for UAE residents and citizens

The UAE’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has said it is closely following up on social media reports of citizens being subjected to “ill-treatment” at Georgia’s airports.

Social media posts had indicated that some of the affected Emiratis were forced to return to the UAE, according to the ministry.

“The ministry, along with the UAE Embassy in Tbilisi, are seriously monitoring the issue and giving it a great consideration,” it said in a statement posted by UAE news agency WAM.

“The ministry is following up the conditions of the UAE citizens in Georgia and is working to provide them with all the care and services they need during their presence in Georgia.”

Emiratis were urged to register with the ‘Twajudi Service’ to be familiarised with travel advice and instructions.
In cases of emergency they can call +995595666466 or the Ministry Call Centre at 80044444.

Both UAE citizens and residents with a valid residency visa can visit Georgia for 90 days in any 180-day period without any prior documentation.

The country has become a popular summer travel destination from the UAE due to the relatively short flight time of under four hours and attractive historical sites and countryside.
