Entering Georgia after visiting South Ossetia

Postby icelolli551 » Tue May 09, 2017 1:41 pm

Hello. I'm a South Korean passport holder.

I wonder if i can enter Georgia after visiting South Ossetia.

My itinerary is Azerbaijan-Russia-South Ossetia-Russia-Georgia.

I think Georgian border guards might get annoyed when they check South Ossetian visa(or stamp etc...) in the passport.

Thanks a lot.

From http://caravanistan.com/visa/south-ossetia:

There is no visa system, just a migration card given at entry.

This would mean, you do not get a stamp (according to my info, we do not get many visitors there). So it seems to me Georgian border guards cannot know you went there.

Passports are not stamped at the Russian-South Ossetian border, so the Georgians won't know. If they did, though, they wouldn't be "annoyed", they'd deport you and ban you from entering again.

I read you will not receive an entry stamp in South Ossetia, but is it true that the Russians will not give you an exit stamp (and entry stamp upon entering again after visiting South Ossetia)? If the Russians do stamp your passport, it would be pretty obvious for the Georgians where you went...

No entry stamp is placed on the passport either in or out. But you can't still enter Georgia because the border with that country is closed.
