The country of Azerbaijan is just new to the electronic visa system. It started in January 2017, which is called the ASAN system. Currently, there are a total of 93 nationalities, including Greek that can apply online, while negotiation is ongoing with Lithuania and the United Arab Emirates. Soon, more countries will have access to an Azerbaijan electronic visa, and as of January 2018, the document is also available on arrival at the airport.
To verify if you are eligible for an Azerbaijan evisa, you may use the iVisa Visa Checker tool. Just insert Greek as your nationality and Azerbaijan as your destination, and the information you need to know will be displayed instantly. If you are eligible, you will be redirected to a page where you can apply.
It is best that you prepare all the documents you are required to provide. There are only a few in the list, and chances are you already have everything you need.
Valid passport – just as when you go anywhere else, you need a passport. If you already have one, make sure that it is valid and remains so for at least another three months from the date of departure to Azerbaijan.
Digital copy of your passport – before filling in the form, you have to scan your passport. You will be required to upload it before you submit your application. While the information page is the most important, scan the entire thing.
Valid e-mail address – while the evisa will be linked to your passport electronically, iVisa will still send you the document via e-mail in PDF format. You are required to print it and take it with you. You will be asked to show it at the immigration office. Just to be safe, print several copies and put them in different bags. That way you can be sure you are not going to lose your visa.
After gathering all the documents that you need, you may then fill in the application form. It is easy to understand, and just in case you need some help, iVisa has a fantastic support service, ready to take your call 24/7.
The form is portioned into three simple steps. The first one will ask you to fill in your general information like name, address, email, passport info, and so on. You will also be required to select a processing time. The amount depends on the processing time that you’ll select from the options. iVisa provides three excellent choices:
Standard processing time – this is the cheapest option you will find, and the most commonly used. It costs only $45 (or the equivalent in your country’s currency), and your application will be processed within four business days. You should apply 6 days before departure because while delays almost never happen, it is best to be on the safe side. The ‘2 days in advance’ rule applies to all processing times.
Rush processing time – this time, your visa will arrive within 2 business days, but you are going to be charged more. The fee for this processing time is $75.
The second step is all about revision and payment. Travelling Greek should insert your information carefully and accurately to avoid confusion or loss of your document. The final step will then ask you to upload additional information and answer a set of personal questions. As for the previous action, not everyone needs to upload the same documents. For example, if you travel with your minor child and without the other parent, you will need an authorization letter from the said parent. After that, you hit submit and wait for the visa to arrive in your email inbox.
The document you receive will Greek you to stay in Azerbaijan for maximum 30 days, but if you stay longer than 10 days, you need to register your trip with the State Migration Service. Hotels provide such service for you, and so do business hosts.
