Year Founded: 1991
Spanning the continents of Europe and Asia and formerly a constituent of the Soviet Union, Georgia warmed up to Europe and the United States after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and has been working to join the European Union. It was engaged in a war with Russia in South Ossetia in 2008, fighting for control over Abkhazia and South Ossetia. This has created tension between Georgia and Russia, which is especially problematic considering Georgia relies heavily on Russia in trade volume and tourism income. In 2016, Georgia banned entry to and transit through Georgia with a Taiwan Passport. Unless you have a second passport or a travel document from China, attempting to enter Georgia is not recommended.
