Georgia

Greece and Georgia established Embassy-level diplomatic relations in 1992. The Greek Embassy in Tbilisi has been in operation since July 1995. Georgia has an Embassy and a General Consulate in Athens and a General Consulate in Thessaloniki.

Political Relations

Greek presence in Georgia dates back to ancient times. Apart from the traditional ties between the two peoples, bilateral political relations between the two countries are based, on the one hand, on Greece’s interest in maintaining strong ties with the strategic area of the South Caucasus and the Black Sea, and, on the other hand, Georgia’s interest in developing relations with the member-states of the European Union and NATO.

Economic Relations

Cultural Relations and Greek Community

There is great interest in Georgia in the Greek language, literature and culture. The Institute of Classical, Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies at the University of Tbilisi has 80 students and there are Chairs of Hellenic Studies at Akhaltsikhe and Batumi universities. 1680 pupils att schools around Georgia are being taught Greek as a foreign language.


The Greek community of Georgia is currently estimated at 15,000 people, mostly elderly people living in the Tsalkas area. Their numbers have shrunk as a result of the large wave of repatriation to Greece following the collapse of the Soviet Union and have been fluctuating to this day. Most of the people of Greek origin who left Georgia have settled in Greece and fewer have moved to Russia to settle as former Soviet Union citizens.
