As part of the effort to reopen Georgia, the country’s government is allowing foreign citizens to enter under a special remote work plan.
The project, spearheaded by the Ministry of Economy, is targeted at self-employed people who have the ability to work remotely. Under the plan, a citizen of another country who wishes to enter Georgia for a long-term stay will be able to do so, provided they fill out an application form and obtain preliminary confirmation documents. The form requires applicants to provide personal information, a certificate of employment, and sign a letter of consent promising to undergo a 14-day quarantine.
Upon arrival, visitors will be required to quarantine for 14 days at their own expense and show proof of travel insurance lasting at least six months. The new program applies to anyone who wants to stay in Georgia for longer than six months, and is designed to encourage remote workers to consider Georgia as a new base of operations. Unlike most border restrictions these days, the program is open to citizens of all nations — that’s right, even the United States.
