What do I need to know about living in Georgia?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Georgia, they said:

"Before retiring in Georgia, expats should be aware of the cost of living, taxes, healthcare, and retirement solutions in the country. While Georgia offers a low cost of living, it is important to research the associated taxes and fees to understand the full financial implications. Regarding healthcare, Georgia has a national universal healthcare system with good coverage. However, expats should take precaution and arrange international health insurance to cover any medical costs that are not already included in the national system. Expats should also research private retirement solutions, such as a pension or annuity to supplement public pensions, to ensure they have the financial support they need," explained one expat living in Georgia Rep.
