FAQs

Can I upgrade to a higher package if I realize I need additional assistance?

This can certainly be done before arrival. Once your relocation package has begun and you have arrived in Georgia, a direct upgrade will not be possible, but we are more than happy to add specific additional services if and when you require them, and they will be billed upon approval of the service by you and us.

What if the package I want has inclusions I don’t need?

Our quote estimates are based on the services you require. Our packages are designed to make it easy to select the common options that most clients need. If you need extras, or do not need all parts of the package, please let us know in your quote request, and we will factor that in when determining the final quote. 

In general, the "Essential" package is the lowest priced package, and elements cannot be removed in order to change the price. However, standalone services, like the apartment search concierge listed above, can be purchased separately in some cases.

Why upgrade to the comprehensive package?

There are a lot more inclusions, as outlined by the package specifications above.

The higher priced package is designed to save you more time by having ExpatHub perform more of the work, so you don't have to. We arrange and cover the cost of your temporary accommodation in a verified apartment in a good location.

It also adds in more elements related to getting to know Georgia, including a small group walking tour and an out-of-town tour experience tailored to your preferences.

How far in advance do I need to book the relocation package in order to be served?

In general, more than 10 business days in advance would be preferable to allow time to plan your relocation itinerary and book suitable accommodation (when needed). Less notice than this is possible on some occasions; our customer service team can advise on last minute availability. During peak summer season (July/August) additional notice may be required, especially to organize accommodation.

How long does the relocation process take?

Our example relocation itinerary can be explored above. We allow 14 days for the main process, though some clients complete it within 10 days. This would include your arrival, general acclimatization to the city, sourcing and moving into your own apartment, and getting settled. The overall process, including after care once you move in, social events, and tours of Georgia outside the city, is typically spaced over 4 to 6 weeks in total. That said, we typically continue contact with our relocation clients who need additional services, even long after the initial process is completed.

What sort of work does the admin/assistant concierge service include? 

Pretty much any admin-related task that you need done relating to your relocation and generally getting situated in Georgia. From answering your questions on demand about anything confusing, helping you to source products/furniture/homewares, setting up your utility bills in your new apartment, and much more. If you need help with something at any time during your first month (10 or 20 hours of work included, depending on your package) and if we can get it done for you, we will, so that you don't have to stress about it.

Do you offer relocation services in Batumi? Or elsewhere?

For Batumi, on special request, this is possible. Please contact us for a quote and mention that you are relocating to Batumi, and we'll confirm if we have someone available for your exact dates.

For other parts of Georgia, we typically don't offer specific relocation packages, but can offer some custom assistance packages. Please contact us with your request and we'll let you know what's possible.

Will your airport transfer pick me up in the middle of the night?

Yes, we are very aware of the number of flights arriving between 11pm and 6am to Tbilisi airport, and there is no extra fee if your flight arrives out of hours.

How does payment work, and how about refunds?

50% of the fee is paid on confirmation of the booking of the service, at which point work begins. This would normally be paid by bank transfer.

The final 50% is paid within 7 days of arrival to Georgia, either by bank transfer or in-person by card.

Refunds would be assessed on a case by case basis and are normally determined by how much work has already taken place.

What if my flight is delayed or COVID restrictions prevent me from arriving to Georgia?

In the case of delays:

If accommodation has been booked on your behalf, we will make efforts to change the booking dates. If additional fees are incurred due to this, we would normally request that you pay them. If needed, we can provide paperwork so that they can be claimed back on your own travel insurance.

In most cases, the elements of the package itself, aside from accommodation, can normally be rescheduled, and if any fees will apply we would inform you in advance.

In the case of quarantine or inability to enter Georgia:

If this is due to no fault of your own, then we'll do everything we can to reschedule the package. If entry rules made it impossible for you to arrive at all for the foreseeable future, then cancellation and a full or partial refund can be discussed, depending on the amount of work which has already taken place, and any expenses (such as accommodation) that cannot be recouped by us. 

Will I need to pay VAT on your service price?

VAT is applied to services provided to persons who normally reside in Georgia, or will do so imminently. For this reason, relocation is a clear statement of intention to imminently reside in Georgia, so VAT will always apply.

What may incur additional fees from ExpatHub?

Any work outside the scope and the fair use amounts for each package. No one likes surprise invoices, so our policy is to inform you in advance that we expect additional work to take place that is not covered in your package, and to give you an estimate of what that work may cost.

Janar, Tom and the team at Expat Hub (Levan, Nina and Saba) have been a real pleasure to work with over the past month. They offer a free 30 min consultation (highly recommended), and the pricing for their packages are very reasonable considering the high level of service. If you're thinking about registering your company in Georgia or looking for tax advice, they are the best available in my opinion.
