Can I exchange banknotes which are unfit for payment?

Lari banknotes which are unfit for payment, or, in other words, belonging to the category IV, are not subject to compensation. If the damage of the IV category banknotes is caused by fire, natural disaster or other force majeure conditions, verified by documents issued by respective bodies, the issue of their exchange will be considered and solved by the National Bank of Georgia on the case-by-case basis.
