e-Visa to Azerbaijan

As of April, 2013, electronic visas have started to be issued for tourists who want to visit Azerbaijan. The electronic visa is not stamped in the passport and is presented together with the passport while crossing the border-check point. Necessary records about the person, entry date to the Republic of Azerbaijan and the allowed number of days in the country can be found on the electronic visa. Tourist’s identity photo will be on the visa as well. Each electronic visa has its own unique number along with the bar code. Once the visa is approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan, it will be sent to the tourist via email by one of the accredited agencies. Tourist does not need to go the Embassy of Azerbaijan at any point during his/hers application process. The whole visa procedure is done electronically, via email, between the tourist and the accredited agency.
