E-Visa Options- Standard and Urgent Visa
The e-Visa for Azerbaijan can be of two types. These are the Standard visa and the Urgent visa. Both e-Visas are similar. However, they are different because of the duration in which it is obtained.
When applying for both types of Azerbaijan visas online, you will need to state your nationality or citizenship, state the type of travel document or passport, and the date when you plan on entering Azerbaijan.
The Azerbaijan e-Visa can be created for an individual, for a family (2 to 10 people), or for a group of people (a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 300 people). The person applying for the e-Visa will need to pay electronically and the visa will be sent to the applicant’s email address. Your e-Visa should be printed once you receive it so that you can show it at border control.
