GEL – Georgian Lari

Overview

GEL is considered to be a restricted currency, which implies an inherent limitation to the tradability of this currency. Fund transfers in this currency are not allowed outside of Georgia.

Besides this limitation, this currency is considered to be complex (multiple information to be provided and complex processing).

Currency Guidelines

Besides the standard information, the IBAN format is mandatory (see Appendix VI).

A clear reason / purpose of payment is mandatory and consists of a full written description (in English) of the nature of payment to be provided in the remittance information. For example: providing an invoice number without guiding text is considered as insufficient and can result in errors or delays.
