On May 2017, the Azerbaijan government began issuing a special electronic visa for citizens of over 90 nationalities, Pakistan being one of the countries in which this is available. Nonetheless, just because the process is more accessible now, doesn't mean that there are no requirements that need to be taken into consideration when filling out an application.
The Azerbaijan Government is currently working on simplifying the process, meaning that they intend to reduce the number of required documents that justify the trip’s purpose, but until that is done, you can still enjoy a fast and straightforward application process. If you’re ready to fill out an application, here is what you need to know.
