Georgiamarker is divided into two autonomous republics ( ) and nine regions (Georgian: მხარე, mkhare). The nine regions are Guriamarker, Imeretimarker, Kakhetimarker, Kvemo Kartlimarker, Mtskheta-Mtianetimarker, Racha-Lechkhumi and Kvemo Svanetimarker, Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti, Samtskhe-Javakhetimarker, and Shida Kartlimarker.

The autonomous republics (Abkhaziamarker and Adjara) were established during the Sovietmarker regime and are recognized by the modern Georgian Constitution. Abkhaziamarker represents a breakaway republic whose independence is not recognized internationally. De jure, Abkhaziamarker is headed by the Chairman of the Supreme Council (in exile) while de facto it is headed by the President. Ajaria, which is headed by the Chairman of Cabinet of Ministers, became fully loyal to the central authorities of Georgia following a peaceful ousting of the former secessionist leader in 2004.

Regions were established by Presidential decrees from 1994 to 1996, on a provisional basis until the secessionist conflicts in Abkhaziamarker and South Ossetiamarker are resolved. The regional administration is headed by State Commissioner (Georgian: სახელმწიფო რწმუნებული) informally Governor an official appointed by the President of Georgia.

The status of the former South Ossetian Autonomous Oblastmarker South Ossetiamarker (also referred to as Samachablo or Tskhinvali Region), is the subject of negotiation with the de facto separatist government, headed by the President. The breakaway republic claims the northern part of the Shida Kartlimarker region as its territory, with small parts of neighbouring regions.

The regions are subdivided into districts (Georgian: რაიონი):
