Georgia’s Golden Visa programme offers a unique opportunity for foreign investors seeking a pathway to residency in the country. The programme has distinct investment options that cater to a variety of preferences and financial capabilities.

For a real estate investment of $100,000, investors can secure a one-year residency permit, allowing them to enjoy the benefits of living in Georgia. Alternatively, by increasing the real estate investment to $300,000, participants can obtain a one-year residency permit, which can be converted into a five-year residency permit, offering indefinite stay in the country.

For those interested in business ventures, a $300,000 business investment opens the door to a five-year residency permit with the prospect of indefinite stay. To maintain this residency, investors must meet specific business-related milestones, encouraging economic development and entrepreneurship within the country.


While Georgia’s Golden Visa programme provides a clear path to residency, the country does not offer a direct citizenship-by-investment programme. Instead, individuals must reside in Georgia continuously for at least ten years to become eligible for citizenship. Applicants pursuing citizenship will need to pass a language test and demonstrate knowledge of Georgia’s history and culture, emphasizing the country’s commitment to integrating those who genuinely embrace its values and way of life. If you are looking for a direct citizenship by investment programme at a similar investment threshold then we would recommend considering one of the Caribbean CBI programmes.


In terms of passport strength and global mobility, Georgia is ranked 92nd in La Vida’s comprehensive Global Passport Ranking. Holders of Georgian passports have access to 129 countries, which equates to approximately 34.5% of the world’s GDP and a significant 62.3% of global travel popularity. This accessibility reflects Georgia’s growing international relations and its efforts to facilitate global travel for its citizens, making it an attractive destination for those seeking both residency and the opportunity to explore the world.
