If you are a citizen of United Arab Emirates, you now have the possibility of getting an electronic visa instead of going to Azerbaijan’s embassy in your country. The process is entirely online, and iVisa will help you through it every step of the way. All you need to do is access the website and follow the steps. The application process will last about 20 minutes, and you can have your Azerbaijan evisa in as little as 24 hours.
What do you need?
In order to get things started, you need to meet some requirements. You must put together a few documents, but chances are that you already have them. They are as follows:
Valid passport – if you do not have a passport, you can easily fix it and get one. It should not take long. If you do have one, check to see its expiry date. For your application to be granted, your passport needs to maintain its validity for at least another three months from the visa’s expiry date.
A digital copy of your passport – iVisa asks that you upload a scan of your passport during the application process. Make sure that the information page is not missing.
Means of payment – the price of the visa and the fees for iVisa’s services will be shown to you before submitting the application. To make the payment, you can use a credit or a debit card, and if you have an account on Paypal, you can use that as well.
Valid e-mail address – iVisa will send you the evisa via e-mail, which is why you need to make sure that the spelling is correct. Otherwise, you will not have access to your visa.
The Application Form
Once you gather the documents mentioned above, you can move on to the application form. It is easy to complete, and it consists of three simple steps. The first one will ask you to fill in your basic information like full name, passport info, address, phone number, and so on. You also need to select the processing time.
The second step consists of revision and payment. You need to check the accuracy of the information you put it. The third and last step will ask you to answer a few personal questions. At this point, you are also required to upload the scan of your passport. After you went through all three steps, you can submit your application and wait for the visa to arrive in the timeframe you chose.
Processing Time and Visa Fees
The cost of your visa depends on the processing time you choose. As for that, you have three excellent options:
Standard processing – this means that your application will be processed within four business days, and the fee is $45.
Rush processing – if you choose this option, your visa will be ready within two business days, but you will be charged more for it. The price of the visa itself remains the same, but the service fee goes higher than for the previous option. The total for this processing time is $75.
Super Rush processing – this is meant for people who have an emergency and need to get to Azerbaijan as fast as possible. You need to pay $95 for your visa, but your application will be processed within a single business day.
Additionally, if you plan to stay in Azerbaijan for more than 10 days, you need to register your trip with the State Migration Service. You can do that through your hotel or business host.
As you can see, the Azerbaijan visa for UAE citizens is simple to acquire. You do not need to get out of the house, you save a lot of time, and your effort is minimal. Moreover, you do not have to go and get an Azerbaijan visa in Dubai at the diplomatic mission. That is one of the best parts.
