Tourists to Azerbaijan can now receive visa online



Azerbaijan has launched an online visa issuing system following a decree of the president of Azerbaijan, the head of  theTourism Association of Azerbaijan Nahid Bagirov said.

According to Bagirov, tourists wishing to visit Azerbaijan can obtain a visa online. Previously tourists encountered difficulties while obtaining visas and they had to apply to the embassies of Azerbaijan in their countries.

“If a tourist living in any German town wanted to obtain a visa for visiting Azerbaijan, he had to go to the Embassy of Azerbaijan in Germany. That created difficulties,” Bagirov said.

Such policies were leading to the decline of tourists visiting Azerbaijan, he said.

“The online visa issuing system has already been started. This means tourists will be able to obtain a visa online by sending a copy of their passport to travel companies without visiting any embassy,” Bagirov added.
