In 2017, Azerbaijan launched an e-Visa program for citizens of 93 countries. The decision was made to increase the country’s tourism as Azerbaijan is a popular destination for religious, health care, and spa tourism. India is one of the 93 countries whose citizens can get an e-Visa in as little as 1 business day.
The general requirement is you need to have a valid passport that is valid for three months after your visa expires. The only other requirement for applying is:
Digital copy of your passport – along with your actual passport, you also need a scan. When you apply for the Azerbaijan evisa, you will need to upload a scan.
Credit or debit card – during the application process you will also be required to make the payment to iVisa for its services. You pay via credit card, debit card or using your Paypal account.
Valid e-mail address – iVisa sends the visa via email. You need to have a valid address for that to happen. Do not forget to double-check the spelling before submitting your application.
Processing Time and Fees
Travelers can choose between 3 processing times:
Standard processing time – if you select this option, which most people do, your visa will arrive within four business days. It is the ideal solution for people who are not in a hurry and it only costs $45.
Rush processing time – this option means that your application will be processed within only two business days, but it will cost you an extra $30, which means you need to pay a total of $75.
Super Rush processing time – last but not least, this option is for people who have an emergency and need to be on a plane to Azerbaijan the next day. It takes one business day for the application to be processed, and it costs $95.
The Azerbaijan visa for Indians allows you to stay in the country for maximum 30 days, and you can only enter once. Along with the information that you need to provide, you will also be required to answer a set of personal questions online. The questionnaire is not lengthy, and it will take you a few minutes to complete. If you have any questions or you find it difficult to complete the application, you can call the iVisa support center. The person answering the phone will guide you every step of the way.
