    1. not likely, you can go in and out; however, this program is only available to those who can stay for 180 days. we, Filipinos, can’t stay here for that amount of time; so we are not qualified.

  1. Hello Lyza, my nationality is not listed but i legally reside in one of the listed nationality. Is it possible to apply?

  2. Hi Lyza, so Filipinos are not eligible to apply for the Remotely From Georgia programme? I didn’t see Philippines in the list.

  3. Hey Lyza, do you know if I can apply with online wallet/bank account such as Revolut, Paysafe and a good accountant who can help me if I have other question.
