DEPARTURE CONDITION AND FORMALITIES

A foreigner staying in Georgia has to leave the territory of Georgia until the term of his/her legal stay has expired.

If a foreign citizen is not able to leave Georgia until the term of legal stay expires, the obligation to leave may be postponed in specific cases prescribed in the law. To postpone the obligation to leave Georgia, a foreigner must apply to a territorial office of the Public Service Development Agency or to the branch of the Public Service Hall.

In exceptional cases, if the request is substantiated, the obligation to leave Georgia may be postponed once, for the term of up to 3 months. The reasons to postpone the departure must be connected to the initial purpose of the travel and stay in Georgia.

  • Note: A foreigner who has applied to the Public Service Development Agency for a residence permit or a Georgian citizenship, shall submit the request to postpone the obligation to leave 7 days before the expiry of his/her legal stay in Georgia. In such a case, the foreigner’s obligation to leave may be postponed once for the period of up to 3 months.

A foreigner whose term of legal stay in Georgia has expired and who arbitrarily leaves the country should, before or after leaving Georgia, pay the administrative fine.
