The Georgia Department of Agriculture is required by O.C.G.A. § 50-36-1 to verify citizenship/immigration status for all public benefits issued. All public benefits are defined in the law as certifications, licenses, registrations, state grant, etc. All new and renewal licenses are required to complete a notarized affidavit and provide one form of acceptable documentation as defined in O.C.G.A. § 50-36-1. The department will implement this change online no later than July 1, 2013. As directed by law, GDA will utilize the Federal Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) program operated by the United States Department of Homeland Security.
We at the Georgia Department of Agriculture take our responsibility to you very seriously and are committed to providing superior agricultural products and leadership.
Please notify us if you have previously submitted an affidavit and one acceptable document for another license or GATE card issued by the Georgia Department of Agriculture.
