The tourism sector, which employs around 150,000 people, has been hugely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Property tax and income tax payments have been deferred for 4 months through November 1st for more than 6,000 tourism-related businesses. In addition, 2,200 hotels with a capacity of up to 50 rooms received grants equal to 80% of a bank loan for 6 months. Companies also have the option to restructure their loans.

However, tourism workers and experts claim that government support is inadequate and cannot compensate for the real damage that has been done to the industry and the people who work in it. While the hotel industry could still find an alternative income by turning into COVID hotels, tour operators, tour guides and other tourism workers lost everything.

Registration as an individual taxpayer is already possible via video call.

The Revenue Service of the Ministry of Finance offers taxpayers who want to register as individual taxpayers, citizens of Georgia (with the exception of individual entrepreneurs) a new, innovative service.

For activation by video call, in addition to registering the taxpayer on the official website – – the Revenue Service also ensures that the individual page for electronic services – – is activated.

The following services are available via video call:

  • Activation of the authorized user page.
  • Recovery of the user password.
  • Change of the phone number given on the authorized user page.
