Same thing happen to me also on 5 Jan 2023 There are groups of thieves and kids who stick to me in front of the entrance of galleria mall of tiblis and steal my valet ,but no people help me ,They are we trained and big mafia is making all this.also around in 10 meter police was standing but they didn't do I cont to georgian Police, and they do nothing!Only they write report, but they cannot talk in English also.so it was difficult.They stollen my credit card and cash including.Also they were using my card for purchasing i told to police also that they are using my card at this place .But no action taken.so with the help of one person I block all my credit card.later I was taken to crime branch and they told me to sit .I waited for 3 hrs in police station.then again they took my statement and tell me to sign on statement, when they found my vallet they will inform me.But any how I came to know that they already found valet in 45 minutes. So one of man ask to me that have u got ur valet.i said not yet .bcz police are telling me when they get they will contact me.he then ask to police and then finally they give me.As I lost all my money and Cards , but only I have got my EID and DL.Dont believe on Google News about no Crime in Georgia. I would request and suggest to go other place than Georgia.Also on the same day in police station I meet three people having same issue .They belongs to UAE resident,Asian and one from US .There is big gang of mafia in Georgia, Tiblis who is operating these racket.As price are saying we cannot do any thing to children as they are 14 years old or less.Also came to know people are following you and have connections outside .when go outside of mall these children are attacking tourisy.No tourist are safe.These racket are g
Operating since 2019 ,still no action taken means surely there is big people behind it .And also too much corruption I think ,So last and final words to all my friends.Avoid to travel Georgia.Bcz no body will help you there.
The crime rate of Georgia is low because the Police force tourists to file the robberies as Lost!and they take signature to close the case bcz the statement is written in their language.
Shame on you ... Worst trip experience. Several almost 4 thefts occured in few minustes and Police did nothing.

be careful with these bars in the old town tourist area, a friend got cleaned up the bank 5600lari in 3 mobile banking app transitions, this was after 2 drinks, he doesn't remember anything, only remembering he was pushed in a car driving around to get more money. doesn't remember which place exactly they drop him off. plus the next day they try to call him to ask for 5000 lari more.

Exact thing happened to me on 2nd Dec on Freedom Square near Spar Market (I guess the location is the same as in the video). 2-3 kids are the same as in the video as well.
They came out of nowhere and two of them clinged to my leg. I was holding in to my wallet as I realised they might do something. Whereas the other 2-3 kids tried to snatch my wife's purse. And in the process my wife stumbled and I rushed to pick her up, and in that very instant one of the kids took out my wallet from my back pocket and then stood behind another girl and took out the entire money and then threw the wallet and ran away. I called the police and reported everything to them and they told me these are gypsy kids and it's a problem for them as well since they do not have any address and don't know where they live and above all kids under 14 cannot be punished by the law, but they will try their best to help us.
Please be careful if you visit Georgia. Whatever you hear about the country can be different as well.

Georgia is the one of the world centers of the children prostitution trafficking.
Even international hotels have special posters that warns parents about children kidnapping.

i am a georgian and lately i have been hearing a lot of death and kidnapping, is this site legit?
Novak on Sep 10, 2022:
It is extremly unsafe for all central Europeans, because Georgians think for most of us that we are Russians.
So if you from west or south slavic countries, don't come to Georgia.
Micah on Jul 08, 2022:
It is not that safe - many restaurants arbitrarily overcharge foreigners by obscene amounts - police are untrustworthy - taxi drivers will scam you if you do not use Bolt, which is the equivalent of Uber - hostility to foreigners is increasing because of the Russians fleeing to Georgia - foreigners are considered a target and are the subject of frequent and aggressive scams in a way that locals are not

This city is one of the safest city’s in fact In the whole county ,,,compared to the USA Canada UK Germany France and the rest of Europe country’s
visitor on May 28, 2021:
never under any circumstance go into a restaurant, bar, or club from any women that approach you from the street asking if you need recommendation for a place to eat or drink. These are scam restaurants, and all bars/clubs in Tbilisi are scam places. u been warned.
visitor on May 28, 2021:
pretty bad country. lot of crime here against tourist even away from tourist areas.
Jordan on Oct 03, 2020:
Its not safe for people that look different . Georgians are very aggressive people especially if you are minority. All this good comments are nothing but lies. You cant even walk alone during night because some drunk georgians might start fighting for no reason just because your skin or even t-shirt looks different.
advice from georgian on Sep 18, 2020:
hey, some advices about safety for people who are going to visit Georgia.

about nighlife:
try to avoid night bars and strip clubs, if you don't have recommendations about place.
nightclubs like Bassiani, Khidi and Mtkvarze are fine and safe. just go and find out about place before you visit at midnight.
some places can overcharge you as hell.

about transport:
bus, micro bus, metro, train are ok and cheap. however if want to take taxi, I recommend to do that through apps.
Yandex Taxi, Bolt, Maxim - those companies are fine, they will give you fair price. local taxi drivers might overcharge you.

The reason why people have a mouth and two ears is because they listen twice as much as they say
Mladen Adamović on Mar 14, 2020:
Crime definitely exists in Georgia and it's the tourists who are the targets. The reason they claim low crime, is because their police refuse to help tourists open criminal cases against locals that attack tourists. They pick-pocket, and overcharge, and make threats.

Crime is much lower today, most crimes are family crimes, which unfortunately, but still is very common problem for whole region, not just for Georgia, tourism is mostly safe, but there are still some areas that you should stay away from (but, such areas you can find in every city nowadays, unfortunately) and police reacts very fast, not long ago someone stole bike from my friend, who is a British tourist and police find it just in a day.

I had a bad experience in last day of the trip in Tbilisi. Group of kids are came añd touched me both sides of my pant pockets suddenly in the Marjanishvlli street's Metro station (in front of Mc Donald) area. Specially when you are walking alone they were doing these kind of nonsense activity after 3:30pm onwards. Beware of them.

I have read my message below- and it is really not fair of the beauty of the place and the people. Tbilisi is an amazing place for tourists and the poeple lovely- we had a few moments of suspicioion but apart from that the people were warm and wanted us to love the country as well.

I would recommend this city one hundred percent.
Tbilisi travellor on Nov 19, 2019:
I am coming back from Tbilisi tomorrow after spending 5 days here.

The country is amazing and the people kind if you're paying for something. Apart from that I found the people intimidating - I am a 6ft 4 boxer from England- so I can hold my own, but there was a few times I told my girlfriend to walk forward whilst I directly communicated with a certain person or group as they followed us, I felt safer in rough parts of London than I did here.

Regardless- if you keep your whits about you- you will be fine.

Be careful at outside bars, I sat down at a bar ordered a beer and two ladies next to me started chating with and I offered the a drink... to find out those women work for the bar and the drinks they order (cognac)is 50 dollars a glass.which was written in a menu that no body will show you So after three drink each they charge me 600. When I protest they call their fellow security people and they put handcuff on me till I withdrew money from ATM. To let me leave. A lot of fraud is going on in the city.

I actually don't understand why people lie, I am Georgian, I find Georgians commenting negative things about Georgia which is not correct in this post. I actually don't understand why. I am young male I go out at night I am mostly alone and always feel safe. There are lots of tourists and I never noticed them treated badly.
Generally you should avoid gypsies they will do everything to make you to give them money, kids will grab your leg and ask you to give money or they won't let you go and stuff like this happens. This is problematic issue for every one and not only foreigners but locals are targeted to. Police can't do anything because they can't arrest kids. They have absolutely no legal status they have no documents no nothing. You can't punish them by any means other than jail time which is too excessive for hugging someone's leg obviously, legally they don't exist.
You should be polite obviously don't pollute important sites, and don't swear or behave badly in churches, people are mostly very religious and whey will find it very insulting. If you need help you can ask it and everybody will gladly help you. Hospitality is big thing here every one tries their best and it is very important to be generous and king toward guests.

Hi,

Can anyone please help me report a cyber crime committed by two persons resident of Tbilisi, Georgia.

They contacted me to purchase a game account that I had put on sale on a Facebook group. They somehow lured me into giving my email login details first and then paying me $200 for the game account. After I provided them the login details to verify the account, they just blocked me and I never got my money.

I have proofs in form of Facebook chat with each of the two persons, I have the email and phone number they used to lock away my account.

Can anyone please help? They agreed to pay me moneu, keep my email shared, and only using the game account, But now that they have locked me out of my email address, I’m really worried.

I had the same experience yesterday which was my first day.

Group of children approached and hugged me and i pushed them away without noticing taking my wallet and in 2 seconds one man alerted me to check my money and then i chased them immediately and retrieved my wallet which was empty then in seconds popice arrived and some robbed coupled like us and we stayed 4 hours on site with police then we went to police station for 3 hours to take statement, and all what they said is that we can not arrest these gypsys under age and that this is happening every day.

Then i told them if its happening every day, then where are you and where are the cameras????
I told them this is ruing your tourism and police didnt care about that.
Shafeeq on Feb 07, 2019:
I was in Tbilisi for a week and Georgia is comparatively safer place. I had very bad experience on the last day of the visit.
A group of kids approached and touched me and within a second they stole my wallet and took my money (around 650 USD) and throw my wallet in the street and run away . I chased them but unfortunately could catch. Under even patrol police chased them but can’t find them . The police case was registered but unfortunately police informed they are Azerbaijan refugees and cannot find them and cannot arrest as they are below 14 years old.So guys please don’t carry too much money and always watch these type of kids group.
