PASSPORT, VISA AND OTHER TRAVEL INFORMATION

Passport Regulations

All international visitors must have a passport that is valid for at least 6 (six) months from the day of their arrival in Azerbaijan.
Arrival to and departure from Republic of Azerbaijan is exercised under one of the following documents:

Visas

All participants must check entry requirements to Azerbaijan in accordance with the nationality and the type of passport they hold with the nearest consulate or the diplomatic mission of Azerbaijan. If necessary, visa must be obtained in advance.

For most citizens of the CIS countries the visa to Azerbaijan is not required.

For all enquiries concerning visas and other formalities required to enter the Republic of Azerbaijan, participants are requested to contact directly the consulate or the diplomatic mission of Azerbaijan in their own country. Only if there is no Azerbaijani embassy in respective country/city, the visa will be provided upon participant’s arrival at Baku Heydar Aliyev International Airport. In this regard, the participant is required to submit a recent passport-sized color photograph, a copy of the passport as well as arrival and departure dates until 20th of October to the contact person Mr Bahruz Asgarov, email bahruz@ichazerbaijan2013.az; Tel: +99412 498 01 12.

The applicants who apply for visa at the embassy need two passport photos and a completed application form. Certain embassies demand either a letter of support from a travel agency or a hotel booking confirmation. Transit visas, usually valid for 72 hours, are issued to those with an onward ticket to a third country in the region.

Single and double-entry visas are usually issued in five days. Business and multi-entry visas require official invitation letters and referral to Baku, so generally take longer. Visa fees applied to foreign nationals are equal to the fees applied to Azerbaijan nationals. Fees generally need to be paid into a local bank (often a fair distance away), so don’t apply late in the day. Fees by country are listed here.

Nationals of the below listed countries are free from visa fees:
1. Holders of Turkish ordinary passports.

2. Holders of ordinary Japanese passports receive 30-day free visa.
3. Holders of ordinary passports of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan receive 15-day free visa

In this case, the participant is required to submit a recent passport-sized color photograph as well as arrival and departure dates until 20th of October to the contact person Mr Bahruz Asgarov, email bahruz@ichazerbaijan2013.az; Tel: +99412 498 01 12.

Transit Visa for other countries

If you travel to Azerbaijan via another country, or if you are planning to stopover elsewhere, you must familiarize yourself with the entry requirements of those countries.
