Georgian holidaymakers told to leave ASAP

Holidaymakers set to visit Georgia in the close future may wish to make arrangements to change their plans, as the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) has changed its travel advice for those visiting the country.

The FCDO has stated that those currently in the country who have no reason to remain there should leave as soon as possible and it would be wise to do so soon while outbound flights are still available.

A statement from the FCDO said: "We advise against non-essential travel to Georgia. If you or your family have no urgent need to remain in Georgia you should leave as soon as possible. It is wise to do so while some air services are still available and the border remains open."

Serious fighting continues in certain regions of Georgia as both Russia and Georgia attempt to gain control of South Ossetia, a region that broke from Georgia in the early 1990s.

Holidaymakers planning on visiting the country or regions nearby are massively advised to take out travel insurance to cover any problems on their trip including flight cancellations, lost baggage or personal injury.ADNFCR-1320-ID-18726552-ADNFCR
