How To Get an Azerbaijan Visa From Pakistan?

For many people, the process of getting an Azerbaijani visa is complicated. However, if you just know what to do, you can make this process easier. Today we will show you how to get it and what are the requirements for an Azerbaijan visa or e-visa.

 

Easy Guide to Getting Azerbaijan Visa

There are two ways to obtain a visa:

1) An Electronic visa is called an e-visa.

2) General/Typical visa applied to the embassy.

Best Places To Visit In Azerbaijan

1) Electronic visa

Individuals or travel agencies can apply for electronic visas. Official website: https://evisa.gov.az/en. After completing the online form and getting confirmation, you will be able to have your e-Visa sent directly to your email within 3-5 business days. According to the official website, the electronic visa application must be submitted at least 3 working days before the planned travel date to the Republic of Azerbaijan. The total e-Visa application fee is $23 ($20 for application review and $3 for the service fee).

Remember, this is the cheapest and most convenient option and you don’t need to talk to any travel agent to get your Azerbaijan visa.

If you still prefer to apply through a travel agency, then you just need to send the required documents to the travel agency. Application forms are mostly available on the web pages of these travel agencies. After that, the travel agency will send these documents to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and you will be able to get the Azerbaijan visa within 15 days (at least 10 days). Azerbaijan recently allows an e-visa facility for Pakistan.

Still, it can last up to 6 weeks, so you should make sure your oath dates are at least a month apart. Generally speaking, the e-visa will cost you €40 per person if the Azerbaijan visa applicant booked the hotel themselves through a travel company, or €60 if the applicant submits a confirmation letter signed and stamped directly by the hotel. 

 

Also, if your trip is urgent, you can apply for an express e-visa and get it in 2-3 days, but it costs about 210 euros. Once they email you the approved Azerbaijan visa, you can print it out and take it with you until you arrive in Azerbaijan. The electronic visa will be provided to the passport officer.
