Entry Requirements

Entry Requirements – Visas

Azerbaijan changed its visa on arrival regime in October 2010, it is no longer possible to obtain a visa on arrival at Baku International Airport.

All British nationals travelling to Azerbaijan must obtain a visa in advance. Apply for your travel visa here.

You should not attempt to travel without a visa as you are likely to be refused entry to Azerbaijan.

We advise visitors to apply for a visa at the nearest Azerbaijan Embassy at least one month ahead of your intended travel date. The organisation/person inviting you to Azerbaijan must submit a letter of invitation on your behalf to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) in Baku. If approved, authorisation will be sent by the MFA to Azerbaijan Embassy in London instructing them to issue the visa.

Entry Requirements – Passport validity

Passport should be valid for at least six months from the date of entry into Azerbaijan.

Entry Requirements – Caspian Sea ferry services

If you intend to take one of the Caspian Sea ferry services from Azerbaijan to Turkmenistan or Kazakhstan you should be aware that you need a valid visa for that country before you travel. You may find that if you arrive at your destination without a valid visa you will be returned back to Azerbaijan. Please note that there is now an Embassy of Turkmenistan in Baku from where British nationals can obtain visas.

There have been outbreaks of rabies in the remote rural areas of Azerbaijan and there is usually a small number of malaria cases during the summer months particularly in the southern part of Azerbaijan.

Do not drink tap water as it may be unsafe but safe bottled water is readily available.

Be aware that contaminated locally produced alcoholic spirits are sometimes sold in small local bars and restaurants.
