If anyone here's into photography, we're arranging an evening photo walk + beers (walk and shoot for a couple of hours in the dim streets of Sololaki, and then have a few beers in one of the many places in the area). I can't post the RSVP link here, but DM me and I will send it to you.

Hey guys just arrived in Tbilisi , planning to stay in Georgia for around 45 days. How good is Gotrip to hire driver?
Also any must visit place?
I am in Tbilisi till 27 Nov ,so if you wanna meet or explore any place together, DM me.
guar47 3mo
Go trip is the best service. Must visit is Svaneti (Mestia)
himanshu 3mo
Will add to my list thanks
jmibl 3mo
Mestia's great, but quite a long journey (unless you can get a flight). If you do go there, I'd personally take the train most of the way. Similarly if going to Batumi (not imho must visit), I'd take the train. The nicer trains are very modern and comfortable.

Kazbegi's an easier mountain place to visit. There's even some nice hiking around Tbilisi, like around Kojori, about 30mins from town. I've also heard Mtskheta is nice, but haven't been yet.

Sighnaghi is another place on my to do list.

In general if heading to the mountains, some areas might have snow and blocked off roads.
egorka 3mo
I would skip Tbilisi altogether and go straight to Batumi. Train, no need for drivers or driving.
himanshu 3mo
Thanks guys , seems like train is a nice option

Hey guys

What's the place to learn Ski in Georgia. Want to learn in Jan
Gudauri, Mestia and Bakuriani are places you want to be for that ๐Ÿ™‚
boris_k 2mo
In case of bad weather Bakuriani will be much more comfortable to ski due to better visibility (esp. for beginners). Gudauri has no forest at all so visibility there may be extremely bad during bad weather and that can be very uncomfortable especially for a beginner.

Is Gaduari good for Ski during first and second week of Jan ?

I booked the stay but then some local told me that it's not snowing during this time
boris_k 1mo
Every winter is different. This year the situation is critically bad so far and the forecast is not promising at all. Quite possible, there won't be enough snow in the first half of January. I think some slopes are covered by snow cannons in Gudauri but most likely it's only the small part.

+1 to what Boris says
this is what it looks like (as of yesterday)
himanshu 1mo
yucuitsvpwwo thanks man , will change my plan
they might open up lifts this week, so for learning I think you could (kinda) give it a try
himanshu 1mo
Okay will stay in Kazbegi then and if it snows then will move to Gaduari
boris_k 1mo
And still, this might not be enough snow...

how long does the season last usually? I booked an apartment 9 jan - 15 april, but might have to delay going there it seems
boris_k 1mo
Gudauri is pretty random in terms of snow and season dates. Some years are very good, and some are horrible. In 2020 there was not enough snow even in February/March (skiable but some videos made me horrified), I remember I canceled my entire trip because of that.

P.S. I've never been to Gudauri in winter myself ๐Ÿ˜„ But I tracked the situation a lot in the past and considering it this year as well.
geri45 1mo
great. Iโ€™ve been there end of January 2019 and had fresh powder the whole week. I guess I shouldโ€™ve brought my rock skis smiling_face_with_tear
boris_k 1mo
Well, last year even Tbilisi surroundings were covered in snow in freaking April for some time, so let's just hope for the best. I think good snow years are rather more common. Maybe just need to wait for a few weeks for the real snow to come ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey guys! A quick question, I have a brokerage account in TBC Capital from TBC Bank, as a non resident in Georgia, should I pay taxes in Georgia on dividends and profit from stock sales?
boris_k 23d
If you're acting as a private individual, I don't see a reason why you should. But I am not 100% sure if there any are any specific rules related to this matter (like if this profit is considered to be earned inside Georgia, for example).

are they cancelling transfers from your bank account to an exchange? Iโ€™m about to open a Georgian bank account and that would rule BOG out.
jmibl 18d
For mobiles, I have been using Magti for ages and been happy, but been having issues recently with it being slow for tethering and video calls in Tbilisi. Not sure what changed.

I got a silknet / geocell sim, and my side by side comparisons in a few locations have shown Silknet a lot faster (like 2-3x, the difference between awkward vid calls and perfect vid calls). Ymmv.

I have a bank account with TBC bank in Georgia thatโ€™s basically empty and abandoned for a year now. Iโ€™m planning to go back to Georgia to get my access restored as I lost it when I left the country and couldnโ€™t use my Georgian phone number to get the SMS.

Is there any service where I can get a Georgian phone number to get those when I need it?

The other alternative is using a friends number and just bother them when I need to access or 2FA the account but Iโ€™m not sure how much of a good idea that would be. Any risks associated with that even if they donโ€™t have my password or access to my email?
jmibl 14d
Wondering if you can use a non-Georgian phone number for the account. I currently have accounts in Singapore and Dubai, and I think both allowed me to put foreign number (and at least with Sg address)

I'm interested in what solution you end up with.
When I opened the account they required a Georgian phone number and I was never able to change it to a foreign number unfortunately.

I'll check if they have the option to send it on whatsapp to that number but honestly doubt it.
jmibl 14d
I wonder if it's the same with Bank of Georgia.
jmibl 14d
I know you can give someone power of attorney for things locally, I guess including bank accounts, but honestly that's probably not what you want to do here.
Yeah I just want to keep a few $k in the account in case my primary accounts have any issue in the future.

But also would like to access it immediately if anything extraordinary happens, kind of like a backup to my emergency funds.

I'll ask if they can change 2fa to an app or my email but I thought it was setup that way before and as soon as I left the country lost access to the account.
boris_k 14d
I use a foreign phone number with TBC
Oh that's great news, when I signed up they wanted only a georgian number. I'll ask them to change it to my number then.

Thank you US3KTM9HB!
You donโ€™t need phone number for TBC when international - they have something called โ€œdigi passโ€ which you have to apply within one of the branches. Itโ€™s basically a separate authentication app for 2FA. Took me ages to realise this is how you solve this problemโ€ฆ

Alternatively you can call customer support remotely and change your phone number to any other international phone number. It just takes a few calls back-and-forth! Hope this helps
boris_k 14d
You cannot confirm online transactions with digi pass though, you still need an sms for that
Thatโ€™s not true, you can!
boris_k 14d
hm, how? I don't have such an option whenever I pay online
Also, youโ€™ll be asked to set up the 2FA digi pass app when moving more than 25000 lari/ monthโ€ฆ this is how I found out about it
boris_k 14d
although I have digi pass enabled
I get a prompt to enter the digi pass code every time I make a transfer to someone new or unsaved contact
boris_k 14d
Transfer is different, I am talking about online payments
boris_k 14d
like on websites
Oh, sorry I miss understood what you said. Yeah I don't know about this. I don't make online payments
Not with TBC anyway
boris_k 14d
Yeah, perhaps I was not clear. I meant online payments with your card when you buy something online. I don't see a way to confirm that via Digi pass, only via SMS
boris_k 14d
3DS-secured transactions, in other words
guar47 14d
Thanks! Iโ€™ll go to ANO then ๐Ÿ˜‰

Apparently, this might be the worst ski season in the history of Georgia, especially in Gudauri :confused:

If you're planning to visit Gudauri this year, maybe it's worth reconsidering. I suspect they will try to build the substrate after the coming moderate snowfalls next week but the amount of expected snow is not enough. It means the substrate will exhaust very quickly after the weather warms up. The best bet for good conditions is probably early March right but it's still not guaranteed.

Wanted to go to Gudauri this year but now considering Azerbaijan as alternative (100% covered with artificial snow).
Hopefully, Gudauri will learn the lesson and cover most of their slopes with snow cannons in the next seasons.
guar47 11d
My friend is there today and he said itโ€™s VERY BAD so far. One slope with artificial snow but even that one looks sad
demin 11d
yes, they started doing it. They cancel my transfers to Kraken.

Iโ€™ve lived in Georgia for 4-5 years and they only started doing it now
demin 10d
still hoping for snowโ€ฆ I have Gudauri booked from 3 to 11 feb if you guys want to meet
geri45 10d
Iโ€™ve been here for 3 weeks and can confirm. There are only 2 slopes open, one for beginners and Gudaura 1. I can do maybe 5-6 good runs every day between 10-11:30 before it gets so crowded that itโ€™s not enjoyable and also dangerous because half of the people on the slopes have no idea what they are doing. Also I have to service my skis every 3 days because the slope is full of stones and they get scratchedโ€ฆ

Iโ€™m here till 15 April so let me know if you come tho
demin 10d
Crap, just bought a new board and don't want to kill it there xdd
geri45 10d
it is snowing now, so conditions hopefully will improve by next week. Hoping they open a few more slopes at least
