The country of Azerbaijan is relatively new to the evisa system. It has been initiated last January 2017, and it is called the ASAN system. 93 nationalities including Spaniards that can apply online, and at the moment, there are negotiations with Lithuania and the United Arab Emirates. More countries have access to an Azerbaijan electronic visa.
For you to check whether or not you are eligible for an Azerbaijan evisa,simply use the Visa Checker iVisa puts at your disposal. You insert Spaniards as your nationality and Azerbaijan as your destination, and the information you need to know will be displayed in just a second. If eligible, you will be redirected to a page where you can apply. It is as simple as that.
Before applying, it is suggested that you collect 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 passport.
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.
Once you collected the documents, you can continue filling the form. It is simple and easy to complete, and just in case you need some help, iVisa has a fantastic support service, ready to take your call 24/7.
The form is broken down 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. At this point, you’re required to select a processing time. The option you choose will determine the amount of money you will pay in step two. iVisa provides three convenient choices:
Standard processing time – this is the cheapest option 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 option will have you visa arrive in 2 business days, for the price of of $75.
The second step is for revision and payment. Travelling Spaniards should insert your information carefully to avoid mistake or loss of document. Lastly, you need to upload additional information and answer a few personal questions. Keep in mind, not everyone is required to upload similar 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 permits Spaniards to stay in Azerbaijan for maximum 90 days. If you plan ti stay longer than 10 days, you need to register your visit with State Migration Service. You can ask assistance from hotels and business hosts.
