No special permit is needed to enter Georgia by land (through the Upper Lars checkpoint). However, the restrictions specified in Decree No. 763 of the Government of the Russian Federation still apply. According to him, departure is possible in the following cases: the presence of close relatives, a trip for work / study, for treatment, the presence of real estate or a residence permit. To confirm any of these grounds, you must have the appropriate documents.

* Citizens of the Russian Federation can return to Russia through the Upper Lars without reason (that is, you can fly by plane, and return by car).

Can citizens of Ukraine and Belarus come through the Upper Lars?

Theoretically – yes, practically – it is unlikely (in practice there were no such cases).
General rules

Foreigners, including citizens of Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and about 100 other countries, do not need a visa to enter. Foreigners can stay in the country for 360 days. After the expiration of this period, it should be reset to zero – it is reset by crossing the border (Armenian or Turkish).
