In January 2017, Azerbaijan implemented the ASAN system, a system that allows Qataris travelers to obtain an electronic visa. While the program is somewhat new comparing it to other countries, it has enjoyed a lot of success since its launch. As for those who can apply online, 93 nationalities have access to an Azerbaijan evisa including Qataris. However, that list is still growing, and soon, more and more countries will join the ASAN program.
In order to see whether or not you are eligible for an Azerbaijan evisa, all you need to do is use the Visa Checker iVisa puts at your disposal. You insert Qataris as your nationality and Azerbaijan as your destination, and the information you need to know will be displayed in just a second. If you are eligible, you will be redirected to a page where you can apply. It is as simple as that.
Before applying, it is best if you put together all the documents you are required to provide. The list is not long, 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.
One of the most common concerns about electronic visas is the cost. iVisa provides its services at pretty competitive prices for Qataris, which is why it has thousands of satisfied customers. One of the reasons why that is is that applicants have three available options when it comes to processing time. Keep in mind that each processing time has its price, and the faster you want your visa, the more you have to pay. Here is what you can choose from:
Standard – this is the least expensive option you have, and most people go for it. It takes four business days for your application to be processed, and you need to pay $45 for it.
Rush – this option will cut in half the waiting time, which means that your Azerbaijan evisa will arrive in two business days. However, you need to pay more if you choose this processing time. The cost is $75.
The application form for Qataris Azerbaijan evisa could not be simpler. It is broken down into three easy steps, but if you need any help completing it, iVisa has a fantastic support service that you can call 24/7. The first step will ask you to fill in your general information like name, address, email address, passport info, and so on. You also need to choose the processing time from the options mentioned above.
The second step will ask you to revise step one and make the payment, and the last step consists of a personal questionnaire and photo upload. It is at this point when you need to upload your passport scan. Other documents may be required as well, but it depends on personal circumstances. After you are done, you submit your form and wait for your visa to arrive.
The Azerbaijan visa you receive will allow Qataris to stay in the country for maximum 30 days. However, if your trip is longer than 10 days, your stay needs to be registered with the State Migration Service. Ask your hotel or host how to do that. They will know what needs to be done.
