Tbilisi, Georgia, Jan.15
By Nana Kirtzkhalia -Trend:
The Georgian Interior Ministry's Daryal (Upper Lars) checkpoint on the Georgia-Russia border moved to a round the clock operating service.
The corresponding decision was made based on the fact that recently there has been a significant increase in the flow of tourists to the Georgian winter resorts, as well as exports of Georgian agricultural products and transit transportations, Georgian Interior Ministry said on Jan.15.
As is known, the Russian side has simplified the issuance of visas to Georgian trailer drivers.
Transition to 24 hours will improve and reduce procedures for passage of passengers and vehicles through the border.
