Security concerns when shipping to Georgia
Shipping to Georgia involves a fair amount of risk to the security of your parcels mostly due to a high rate of corruption within the government. Government officials within the Customs department sometimes lift packages from their shelves for personal use, specifically gifts or items that they think have some value for resell. Other times the workers in Georgia who unload shipments at the ports or at the airport take parcels and goods. The point being that many, many items are stolen when shipped to Georgia. So many, in fact, that some shipping companies will not offer insurance for your shipment when sending it there, putting you in a send at your own risk type of situation.
Packaging when shipping to Georgia
Keep in mind that your package will most likely be searched when shipping it to Georgia and pack it accordingly. You will want to make sure your items fit securely in their packaging, be it an envelope or box or what have you, but not too snugly that they can't be unpackaged and then repackaged by the Custom's department during their screening process. If you need help preparing your shipment, talk to your shipping company as they will assist you in getting your parcel ready to ship.
