Who doesn’t want to visit a European country to spend vacations amid the breath-taking scenic beauty? Well, for Qataris it just became even easier as Gulf residents are now eligible to receive a ‘visa on arrival’ from the tiny European country of Georgia. Of late Georgia has become one of the preferred destinations for a number of Qataris.
Since the beginning of vacations in Qatar this summer, travel agencies have been witnessing a brisk demand for tour packages to Georgia. Short packages of 4-6 days are selling like hot cakes off a baker’s shelves. It is believed that Georgia has attracted far more visitors from Qatar in the recent times as compared to other tourist destinations that are not far from Qatar.
Additionally, the reasons that have made Georgia such an attractive destination in the recent times are the affordable packages offered by tour operators from Georgia. A large number of both local Qataris and expats are reported to have travelled to Georgia to spend Eid vacations. The bookings for Georgia tours witnessed a steady demand during the last ten days of the Holy month of Ramadhan, said Ahmed, who works with a travel agency in Doha.
Similarly, people from Dubai too have been flying to Georgia in large numbers this year. Owing to flight time of only 4 hours, flights to Tbilisi witnessed full bookings this Eid.
If you too want to visit Georgia, there still is time, book a ticket and fly away.
