In dire situation reaching out for help!
Reaching out for help from anyone who feels generous to assist me in going back home. Which I have no funds to go back home being stranded in foreign country.
I traveled here from the county South Africa to Republic of Georgia as a tourist in December 2019 Christmas eve. Escaping from family and daily life back home to temporarily have a vacation here. Which I didn't plan all things proper. I saved up money and got a one way ticket to here. Not knowing what is about to happen. Ending up to be stranded here instead due to this covid-19 situation closing borders thus made it impossible to go back home buy my return ticket. Which I had no choice but to use my ticket money back home for accommodation and food.
When my funds became really low for food and accommodation I seeked desperate help from my embassy and government to assist me in going back home. My government told me cannot help me. And embassy told me they cannot pay for my ticket to go home which there is no commercial flights available. Which if there is he advised me not to take that ticket because of the situation I will not get a refund incase something happens again due to this world situation when unable to board the plane. I have done research and found out everything I could. Contacted everyone who is capable of helping. Everyone gave me the same answer.
My embassy told me my only option is to take expatriation flight. Who helps stranded citizens in foreign countries. But the problem is there is very few expatriation flight's and they are far more expensive than the commercial flights. Between 1200$-2000$ if I'm able to find expatriation flight. My government. Embassy. And flight airlines strongly advised me against buying a ticket with commercial flights on websites. Even though they are cheaper. Commercial flights is too risky with sudden border changes and there is 99% chance I will not get a refund because of this situations.
For almost 3 months long. I've tried everything to go back home. I am still incontact with embassy and government and they keep telling me the same I should only take expatriation flight that's only way I can go home.
Here in foreign country. I barely have enough money left for food and this is my last month for accommodation which I can afford. My family already sent all the money they can afford. Which was enough for accommodation and food. Which I worry they said they already in too much debt to send again. Means from Jully I might even be homeless too if I do not succeed in going back home. I already tried to find a job here. But I do not have qualifications so just like all jobs. With interviews and everything. Finding a job in time will not be guaranteed. I already tried looking for job for 3 months. And it is not my wish to stay in foreign country. I have a job waiting for me back home if I'm able to go back home to my family and girlfriend waiting for me Which I desperately need to go back to. I originally came here only as vacation and I did have funds when I came here for return ticket. But had no choice to stay longer using my return ticket funds for food and accommodation.
I do wish I knew back then what I knew now. But everyone makes a mistake and I'm learning from my mistakes.
Now my only desire is to return back home to my family and my girlfriend waiting for me and return to my job when I'm back. My desire is not to stay in foreign country longer than I wanted to stay. I ask of anyone to help me go back home who feels generous hearted.
