- those who are the legal guardians or custodians of a Georgian citizen;
- those who are under the guardianship of a Georgian citizen;
- individuals invited in the country as highly qualified specialists;
- artists who are invited in the country for state interest;
- those who are relatives of a Georgia citizen or a foreign individual who already has a Georgian residence permit;
- those whose Georgian citizenship is terminated or are considered victims of human trafficking.
 
If you have any doubts about your qualification as a future Georgian resident, our company formation agents in Georgia can help you understand the requirements. 
 

Applying for a residence permit in Georgia

 
The individual can apply for a residence permit at the Georgian diplomatic mission or consular office in his or her state of residence. The following documents must be submitted with the application:
 
- passport copy;
- two photos;
- documents attesting legal income;
- if you are already in Georgia when applying - documents that prove the existence of a Georgian visa;
- relevant documents that prove the reason of the stay: employment certificate, official invitation, medical documents for treatments in the country.
