Hello, do Georgian banks offer USD and EUR accounts? How to convert EUR/USD in the bank account to GEL at the best rate?

they do. also CNY/JPY/CHF. but you can't wire USD and then see USD in your balance. you wire USD, it appears in your balance as GEL, and then you yourself need to convert it into the USD sub account

You mean I can't receive USD directly and it gets converted twice?

Right. After all, the US Dollar is not the national currency.

What you can do, is personally bring physical US Dollar notes to a branch and have those deposited in your USD sub account directly

I’m quite sure I get US dollar bank wire with BOG and they won't converted into GEL automatically...

I think you're misunderstand something~

they offer USD & EUR sub-account...you can wire USD to your USD sub-account...
you may see the balance as GEL, but actually the money is in USD :)

like this, show total balance only in GEL, but actually you have different currencies in your account:

USD wires sent to that IBAN will arrive in your account as GEL. They will not bypass the GEL balance and go straight into your USD balance. From what I've seen the only way to bypass the initial GEL conversion is to physically bring physical USD notes into a branch inside Georgia with your own hands.

But I get USD bank wire for few times few months ago...I'm 100% sure you're wrong~

maybe because your account type is not "universal account" with different currencies ?
