The official language of Georgia
2. Is Georgia
Absolutely! However, just like in any country, you should exercise some
caution: be aware of your surroundings, keep an eye on your belongings, don’t
walk alone late at night, etc. TLG provides volunteer teachers with the
training, information, and support that they need to stay safe during their
time in Georgia.
3. Will I be placed in conflict regions?
Volunteers are not placed in any areas of recent conflict or in any
areas that pose potential safety and security threats. All volunteers are placed in regions directly
under the jurisdiction of the Georgian Government.
4. Can I travel to the conflict regions?
The Government of Georgia has no jurisdiction over the two occupied conflict regions, Abkhazia and so-called South Ossetia. Furthermore, countries do not recognize the breakaway regions and have no presence or representation there. Since neither the Government of Georgia nor your own government will be able to protect you if you travel in these regions, you are strictly forbidden from visiting Abkhazia and so-called South Ossetia. Travel to all other parts of the country and neighboring countries, however, is unrestricted!
