Georgia denies migrant visa extensions

New policies squeeze some Asian workers out of a country that has been wooing foreigners for a decade.

    Foreign business people were once welcomed to Georgia to buy agricultural land.

    But now many workers from Asia are being forced to leave because their visa extensions are being denied.

    Critics say Georgia is losing much-needed foreign investment.

    Al Jazeera's Robin Forestier-Walker reports from Georgia's Kakheti region.
