The Georgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs states that in order to enter Georgia, a foreign national must first obtain a Georgian visa, which can be printed out and placed in the visitor’s passport or provided electronically (electronic visa). If they satisfy the criteria for visa-free travel, some foreign visitors may be qualified to visit Georgia without a visa.
All international students therefore belong to at least one of the immigration groups listed below.
Category 1: Students entering Georgia without a visa
Category 2: Students who require a D3 visa to enter Georgia as students.
