Eligibility for Tax Residency in Georgia

The process is pretty simple. Any individual living in Georgia for 183 days during a consecutive 12-month period is eligible to apply for tax residency.
Of course, you may not be able or interested in spending half a calendar year in Georgia. Fortunately, the government has created a special regime for those designated as “high net-worth individuals.”
Someone is considered to be high net-worth if:

  • The value of his/her confirmed property is greater than GEL3,000,000 (approximately €1.35 million USD);

  • His/her annual income exceeded GEL200,000 (about €90,000) in any of the three years before the year they submit the application.

There are a few other conditions that must be met:

The applicant must have either a Georgian residency permit or Georgian nationality … OR, the applicant must verify receiving at least GEL25,000 (just over €6,000) of Georgian source income during a single year.

How to Obtain Tax Residency

  • Obtaining Tax Residency by living:

    You should permanently live in Georgia for 183 Days and you will be automatically deemed as Georgian tax resident.

    After expiration of 183 days you should apply to Revenue Service of Georgia to get Tax Resident Certificate and it will be issued within 3 days.


  • Obtaining Tax Residency as a  “high net worth individual”:

    In case you are not planning to live in Georgia for more than 183 days per year you can obtain tax residency of Georgia if you are “high net worth individual”
