Obtaining-a-Work-Permit-in-Georgia.jpgForeigners who want to work in the country must obtain a work permit in Georgia. The foreigner is allowed to perform labor activities in the country, if he or she possesses a visa for Georgia. This document is obtained following an application and residents of certain selected states have the right of entering the country without a visa.

Visa for working in Georgia

Georgia adopted a new visa policy in 2014. Individuals who want to work in the country need to obtain a long-term visa and then apply for a resident’s permit. This type of visa will act as a work permit, but only if it is long term. Although a practice for some short-term posts, working in Georgia using a tourist (short term) visa is not permitted by law.
Nationals of certain countries are exempt from obtaining a visa in order to enter the country. However, the maximum stay period for these citizens is one year. All citizens of the European Union and citizens belonging to other 64 states can enter the country based on this no-visa policy. This also applies for those who have refugee status in Georgia or for the holders of diplomatic passports from China, Egypt, Peru or Uruguay.

Visa applications in Georgia

A foreigner who wants to invest, open a business or work in Georgia will need to obtain an ordinary visa. The document is issued by the Public Service Hall or the embassy or consulate in the country of origin. The following documents are needed when submitting a visa application:
- valid passport;
- visa application form;
- one photo;
- payment receipt for the state duty tax.
Additional documents might be needed, such as further documents that can prove identity, documents proving one’s financial means and purpose of stay in the country.
The fee for a 360 day visa in Georgia is 100 GEL and the application form may be filed in Georgian or English or the language of the country where the application is submitted, at a Georgian embassy or consulate. The decision to approve or issue an ordinary visa is communicated in seven days.
Our Georgian company formation agents can give you further information about the Employment Law in the country and your rights as a foreign employee. 
You can contact our company registration agents in Georgia, if you have questions about doing business in the country.
