Last January 2017, Azerbaijan took part in countries that can release electronic visas. Currently, there are 93 nationalities including Swiss that were granted for such document, and it is a considerable success. Additionally, more nationalities are to be added to the list such as Lithuania and The United Arab Emirates.
Checking your admissibility is very easy. iVisa provides a tool called Visa Checker. You insert Swiss nationality, choose Azerbaijan as your destination, and you will find out in just a second. If you are admissible, you will be redirected to a page where you can apply. That’s how simple it is.
What are the requirements for Swiss?
The e-system needs you to provide a few things, but the list is short, and chances are that you already have all you need.
A Valid Passport – when you travel internationally, you need passport. If you already have one, bear in mind that it needs to be valid for at least another three months from your departure date.
A digital copy of your passport – while you fill in the application form, you will be asked to upload a digital copy of your passport. See to it that you scan it before finishing the form so that the process runs smoother.
E-mail address – iVisa sends the visa via e-mail in PDF format. Although the visa will be linked to your passport electronically, you will still need a copy. Make sure that the address you entered is valid and the spelling is accurate.
Means of payment – iVisa accepts numerous methods of payment. You can either use a credit or debit card or a Paypal account if you have one.
The application form
Normally, when Swiss travelers imagine of forms, they often take it as something complex. We are all aware with those government forms that require translation. However, iVisa designed a short and simple application process that is easy to comprehend. Even so, if you have a hard time understanding and accomplishing it, iVisa provides support service for 24/7.
Applying for evisa is a three-step process. First, one will ask you to enter your basic information such as name, address, email, date of birth, passport info, and so on. You are also needed to select a processing time during this step. The choices are located below. The second step consists of a simple revision and payment. It is important that all the information you insert is correct. Lastly, you need to completely answer a personal questionnaire and upload additional documents. Extra documents will be case to case basis.
Once you are done finishing the form, all you need to do is hit the submit button and wait for the Azerbaijan visa to be sent via email. It is as simple as that.
Processing time and fees
These two are discussed together because one determines the other. Essentially, the processing time will dictate the service charge. iVisa gives three excellent choices that are fit for every Swiss. Here is what you can choose from:
Standard processing time – this is the cheapest choice you have. Your application form will be administered within four business days, and it costs only $45. It is advisable that you allow two extra days so that if interruptions happen, which is almost never, you still get your Azerbaijan visa on time.
Rush processing time – the next option is a bit faster than the previous. You will get your evisa within two business days. You will be charged $75.
Super Rush processing time – this is highly advisable for people who forgot about their visa or have an emergency and need to be on the plane to Azerbaijan the following day. The application is processed in just one business day. As you can guess, the fees are a bit higher as well. The total amount will reach $95.
As you can see, there could not be a faster and smoother process. The evisa you get will allow you a 30-day maximum stay in Azerbaijan. However, keep in mind that all Swiss that exceed 10 days must be registered with the State Migration Service. You can ask your hotel or host how to do that. They are glad to help you.
