Currency and Banks
There are many established in Georgia, located in both Tbilisi and the regions. As a rule, banks are open from 9 am till 6 pm, but sometimes till 8 pm. Some branches of some banks are open 24/7.
You can exchange foreign currency in Georgian banks. Lari notes come in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 Lari, whilst coins are in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 Tetri, 1 Lari and 2 Lari. ATM’s are available throughout major cities and towns.
Foreign currency can also be exchanged at special currency exchange offices in the streets of medium sized and large towns. The exchange rate offered in these facilities is generally better than that offered by the banks. Currency exchange offices work from 9 am till 8 pm, every day of the year.
