  1. Seems my message gets lost. Instead of going back to Thailand I am thinking of coming to Georgia for a long visit and might move therel i have a Thai wife and daughter and I am American so is there any problems with that?
    I have other options of course and that is why I named my saliling vessel OPTIONS!
    Hope someone can give me some info.

    1. Hi normally there is no problem, you can stay here for one year but in this pandemic situtation, I think you should check it with your embassy.

  2. We are living on our boat in Malaysia and have decided not to go back to Thailand and considering coming to Georgia for a few months.
    Looking for any inputs. I am not too sharp when it comes to asking questions on some sites as most of my inputs are on messenger and such.
    Bringing my wife and daughter who are Thai and I am American to Georgia for a month or more is what i would like to do. I have made reservations for an month at a hotel so any help once we arrive from any English or Thai speaking person would be very helpful. I have traveled Europe many years ago by backpack and lived on my sailboat for 18 years and now living on another one as I type.
    Anyone want to chat I have all the time in the world. No covid on this little island in Malaysial
