By the decree of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, since 2003, the system of issuing electronic visas has been applied in Azerbaijan. This system was created to simplify the procedure for issuing tourist visas. Tourists no longer need to go to the embassy and wait in queues. An electronic tourist visa is issued within 5 working days in the form of an electronic file, which tourists should print and submit on passport control together with their passport.
To issue an electronic visa we require the following documents:
Copy of the passport
A completed application form (signed below)
All documents must be sent in JPEG format
* An electronic visa is issued only if you book a hotel through Visit Azerbaijan
* The company is not responsible for refusing a visa to a tourist
* Take into account that if you illegally visited the Azerbaijani region of Nagorno-Karabakh occupied by Armenia, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan can refuse to receive you an electronic visa.
* Passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the date of entry into the country.
Citizens of the CIS countries (with the exception of Turkmenistan) do not need a visa to Azerbaijan. Citizens of the countries of the Persian Gulf (UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Oman), the People's Republic of China, Japan, Turkey, Israel and Korea receive a visa upon arrival at the international airport named after H. Aliyev.
