The Republic of Georgia is an emerging travel hot spot, and travelers flock there for historic architecture and churches, unique food, and plentiful outdoor activities like hiking and skiing in the Caucus mountains. Georgians are renowned for their hospitality and friendliness, and lingering over meals with friends and drinking the local wine is one of the joys of living there. In fact, Georgian’s winemaking traditions are recognized by UNESCO as among the world’s oldest.
The Work Remotely from Georgia program is one of the most accessible digital nomad visas, as it only requires $2,000 per month of income (or a bank deposit) and is open to self-employed people and remote workers. You can bring your family, too, with no extra income required.
As the growing number of digital nomad meetups and co-working spaces in Tbilisi make clear, this welcoming visa, the simplicity of registering a business, the low tax rate, and the low cost of living make the Republic of Georgia a great place to work remotely abroad.
