"In January 2020, the number of international travelers in Georgia reached a record of 633 thousand international travelers. The results of January are especially important as it is a direct link to the activities that the National Tourist Administration has undertaken in 2019 in marketing activities or any other international area. Consequently, we received a record result which is very important for the tourism development.”- Mariam Kvrivishvili, head of the National Tourism Administration, said.

After Russia imposed aviation restrictions on Georgia, the government has been working hard to minimize the possible negative effects. In particular, in 2019 the National Tourism Administration carried out major marketing activities. There have been numerous large-scale campaigns about Georgia through various influential international media outlets and online platforms all around the world. What is more important, the National Tourism Administration hosted hundreds of high-profile media. Consequently In January 2020, Georgia received a record number of international travelers and tourists.
