New Georgia residents must register in person within 30 days of establishing residence.
Visitors who remain in the state for less than 90 days, and out-of-state students are not required to
register their vehicles in Georgia as long as they display a valid license plate from their home state, unless they:
- Accept employment in the State
- Engage in any trade, profession, or occupation in the state
- Enter their children in Georgia public schools.
In these cases, they must purchase a Georgia tag and/or decal within 30 days after entering Georgia.
