Is Abkhazia Safe?

 

Abkhazia is no stranger to tourism and tourists, with thousands of Russians visiting the country every Summer. This has prompted the major tour companies and hotels to ensure a safe standard of travelling and provide safe excursions within Abkhazia. However, it is always important to fully research any of the world's travel destinations before going. For the majority of foreigners, there are no consular services available in Abkhazia. Always take note of the travel information advised by your government. Under Georgian Law it is a crime to enter Georgia through the Russian-Abkhazian border, so when travelling through Abkhazia via Russia, it is important that you leave through the same border.
