The Tbilisi City Court upheld the lawsuit of “Rights Georgia”, declared invalid the Agency's refusal to issue a residence permit to V.M., and ordered the agency to grant the short-term residence permit to V.M.
Agency appealed the respective decision before the Tbilisi Court of Appeals and then to the Supreme Court of Georgia. Finally, the Supreme Court declared the Agency's cassation appeal inadmissible and the decision to issue a short-term residence permit to V.M. entered into force.
