Security Notice
American Embassy Tbilisi
October 19, 2004

The Georgian Ministry of Internal Affairs (MOIA) has established a new police emergency hotline. To contact police in an emergency, simply dial “022” from your landline or from your cell phone. You will be connected to a police dispatcher who will send patrol police to your location to assist you.

This service is currently limited to the city of Tbilisi and will provide police response only. However, in the near future, MOIA is planning to expand this service countrywide and to include fire and ambulance response.

Please note, however, if you use this hotline, the police dispatchers speak Georgian and Russian only.

The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy is located at 25 Atoneli Street, Tbilisi 380026. We can be reached by telephone number: 995-32-989967 ext. 4500, fax number: 995-32-922953, or e-mail: consulate-tbilisi@state.gov. Additional information can be found at the Embassy’s website: http://georgia.usembassy.gov. Hours for American Citizens Services are Monday through Friday, 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. excepting American and Georgian holidays.

For the latest Security information, Americans living and traveling abroad should regularly monitor the Department's Bureau of Consular Affairs Internet website at http://travel.state.gov, where the current Worldwide Cautions, Public Announcements, and Travel Warnings can be found. Up-to-date information on security can also be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll free in the U.S., or, for callers outside of the U.S. and Canada, a regular toll line at 1-317-472-2328. These numbers are available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday (except U.S. federal holidays).
