I need to use more than one RewriteCond for a redirection with this rule: if it has 1 or all of these specified, do not redirect it.

RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !Googlebot
RewriteCond "%{HTTP_REFERER}" "!"

What I have tried:

It seems I need to use some flags in the end of rewritecond.

Use the '[NC]' flag to make the pattern matches case-insensitive. Use the '^' and '$' symbols in the country code and 'referer' conditions indicate the start and end of your respective strings - RewriteRule Flags[^]

The RewriteRule '^ - [L]' line used in my code is used to indicate that if any of the specified conditions are met, no further rewrite rules should be processed and the request should not be redirected, the '-' means no redirection -
RewriteEngine On

#Check if the user agent is not Googlebot...
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !Googlebot [NC]

#Check if the country code is not 'fr'...
RewriteCond %{ENV:GEOIP_COUNTRY_CODE} !^fr$ [NC]

#Check if the HTTP referer is not ''...
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^https?://test\.com [NC]

#Check if the requested URL is 'page.php'...
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/page\.php/?$ [NC]

#Combine the conditions using the [OR] flag...
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !Googlebot [NC]
RewriteCond %{ENV:GEOIP_COUNTRY_CODE} !^fr$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^https?://test\.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/page\.php/?$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^ - [L]

#Your existing redirect code...
RewriteRule ^page.php/?$ $1/page2.php$2 [R=301,L]

You should have mentioned this in your question, would have saved me some time... I have updated my solution. I suggest you read the link provided to understand what the conditions are for redirecting.

are you sure this referer code is working ? or its only working on home page of and not working on sub pages? like ;

Have you set up the appropriate environment variable 'GEOIP_COUNTRY_CODE'. Also, ensure that you've enabled the necessary modules like 'mod_rewrite' and 'mod_geoip' for these conditions to work properly.
