Azerbaijan is a wonderful Eurasian style country located in the Caucasus region on the crossroad of Europe and Asia. The country recently launched an evisa service which is available to citizens of 81 countries including Pakistan and India. I took the advantage of this evisa, and got it within 2 working days. I found it the best evisa system after Turkey eVisa and Myanmar eVisa. But Azerbaijan visa is cheaper than the mentioned countries.
How to Obtain Azerbaijan eVisa?
The evisa is an entry permission to Azerbaijan which allows you to board a flight and seek entry into the republic of Azerbaijan. Citizens of 81 countries can apply for this visa through the official government website of Azerbaijan.
Go to the above official website, and on the bottom at left, click the link “Countries eligible for evisa”, and find out if your country is in the list. If your country is there then you simply need to click the big “Application” button to start processing your evisa application.
The normal processing time is 3 working days, but I got my visa within 2 working days. And if you are lucky then you’ll get the visa either on the same day or next day.
The visa cost around $24 USD, the actual cost is $20 but they also charge the administrative fee which is something like $4 USD. Master cards and visa cards are acceptable payment methods.
When you submit your application, you’ll be asked to click on the link sent to you via email, the next step will be paying the payment and after that you’ll wait to receive the final evisa approval from the officials.
Take a printout of the approval letter which you received via email, and show it to the immigration officers at the border of Azerbaijan. You should always keep that printout with you while traveling to Azerbaijan, because Airlines may ask you to show the visa before boarding the flight.
