Georgia Certificate of The Compatriot Residing Abroad - Law passed and design is ready. Soon will be available for overseas compatriots!
The best design contest for the Georgia Certificate of Compatriot Residing Abroad Compatriots was announced on November 7. Those who were willing to participate had to submit their work by December 1st to email@example.com. It was possible to view the works online on the Georgia State Minister's social network website – www.iamgeorgian.com
Georgia Certificate of The Compatriot winning design and now, the formal and official design, looks like a booklet filled in Georgian and English languages. The background images feature Georgian public figures residing abroad, musical score of the anthem of Georgia and other Georgia historical sites and places.
The legal foundation of this Certificate is the bill "On the compatriots living abroad and diaspora organizations". The bill was passed by the Parliament of Georgia in November 2011. Bill "On the compatriots living abroad and diaspora organizations" will come into force in March 2012. That's the expected time when first Certificates will be issued to overseas compatriots. The purpose of the bill is to define public policy and the principles of Georgia with regard to overseas compatriots, to form the basis for implementation of this policy, and to determine the legal status of overseas Georgian compatriots and Georgian diaspora organizations.
Below you could see some snapshots of the Certificate. For additional information please visit online official page of the Georgia House of Justice (in english): http://house.gov.ge/index.php?sec_id=1&lang_id=ENG
