What are the requirements?
This is the main question you probably have in mind right now, and that's why iVisa is ready to help you with this information. First of all, there is one general requirement imposed by Azerbaijan’s Government, which is to check that you have a *valid passport**. In other words, your passport must have a validity of at least three months after the Azerbaijan e-Visa expires.
To give you an example, if you get your visa today, and it is valid for 30 days, that means your passport must be valid for at least another four months from your day of departure. Simple as that. This requirement is mandatory to all applicants.
Apart from the general requirement mentioned above, there are a few other things needed for the application process. Here's the complete list:
A passport scan – If you apply with iVisa, you'll mainly need a copy of the information page of your passport. Here you will find instructions on how to make the best passport scan.
E-mail address – When you apply with iVisa you get your e-Visa through an e-mail, so make sure that you introduce a valid e-mail address.
Payment – iVisa accepts a lot of methods of payment such as credit and debit cards or Paypal.
After you get all the documents, you are required to fill in the application form. This process should not last more than a few minutes. However, if there are things difficult to comprehend or you cannot complete the application by yourself, iVisa offers you an excellent support service that is available 24/7. Just call them when you need to, and they will help you in every step of the process.
There is one last requirement that applies to UK citizens who plan to stay in Azerbaijan for more than 10 days. We already mentioned it before, but we have to emphasize it: In case you want to stay for more than 10 days in Azerbaijan, you need to register your trip with the State Migration Service once you arrive in Azerbaijan. You can ask your hotel reception or your business host how to do that, and they will guide you.
