Georgia Launches Digital Nomad Visa for Remote Workers

3 Sep 2020

"Georgia has announced the official launch of its highly anticipated Digital Nomad Visa program, 'Remotely From Georgia,' reads an article published by Kashlee Kucheran's online publication Travel Off Path.

 

"If 2020 brought us anything beneficial, I would have to say it's the new global excitement of being able to work remotely, and not necessarily having to be chained to one office. Many nations are beginning to realize just how big the remote working community is, and with the latest changes to all of our lifestyles, how much bigger it will grow," notes the author of the article.

 

The publication emphasizes that 'Remotely From Georgia' will allow remote workers to stay and work their online businesses legally for at least 180 days and up to 1 year without having to run annoying visas. It also works well for business owners, entrepreneurs and even salaried employees who are cleared to 'work from home.'

 

This program also has a significant advantage that helps candidates to circumvent the current COVID-related entry-requirements that prevent much of the world from entering Georgia, the article states.

 

95 countries are welcome to apply. The article states Georgia's Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia has tweeted on the project.

 

"Happy to announce the launch of a new state initiative 'Remote from Georgia' empowering people from 95 countries to fly and operate remotely from Georgia. As one of the best countries in the world during the pandemic, we can host visitors securely," said the head of government.
