Georgian travel companies have responded to the Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili’s recent statement regarding the possibility of visa-free travel being introduced between Georgia and Israel. As we reported, Mr. Ivanishvili is confident that will be achieved in the near future. A representative of the company Intercontinental has told TV3 that this is a significant development both for tourists and the travel agencies, since demand in this direction is always high. He states that while the company currently has Egypt as its main market and will only be offering flights to this country in 2013, they will definitely consider adding Israel as a destination from next year onwards.

The company Fresh Travel has stated that if visa-free travel was to be introduced, then they would be increasing the annual number of tours to Israel from the current 2 per year. The company confirms that the visas are a problematic issue, leading to the majority of their customers currently choosing Turkey as their travel destination. Resolving this issue would enable the company to focus more on Israel in the future.
