According to Georgia’s interior minister, more than 30,000 people have migrated to Georgia from Russia alone this year. Many of the recent migrants to Georgia are educated and ready to seek new opportunities.

In Georgia, the government is allowing Russians to stay in the country for 1 year with just a Russian passport. This makes Georgia an easy option. Talent often flows down the path of least resistance. After that year, the government is providing avenues for migrants to obtain temporary or permanent residence.

In Georgia, the native language is actually Georgian, and it’s the only place in the world where the language is commonly spoken. This may seem like a barrier at first, however, Russian is widely spoken as a second language throughout the country, and since 2010 the Georgian school system began teaching English literacy in its elementary schools. Georgia is a country on the rise. You’re a company on the rise. Sounds like the perfect match if you ask us!
