US $ 201.6 million in 2016 and US $103.1 million in 2015.

The import of cigars and cigarillos is also increased. Last year, cigars for US $ 676 thousand were imported,

In 2017 – US $650 thousand.

The export / re-export is growing in parallel to import. In particular, Georgia exported US $ 148.8 million worth of cigarettes in 2018, which is 3,5 times more compared to previous year.
