Situated at the intersection of Europe and Asia is the former Soviet republic, Georgia. Home to Caucasus Mountain villages and Black Sea beaches, Georgia is a hidden gem filled with mountainous backdrops and medieval charm. And its enchanted landscape could soon be your new home and workspace.

The country plans to open its borders to all international tourists in August and will also be launching its long-term visa which welcomes those who want to work remotely from Georgia for up to six months. The programme is part of the country’s plan to support its tourism sector which has been gravely affected by global travel restrictions.
