Hello,

I'm looking to take either a day trip or overnight trip from Baku to Quba and the mountain villages nearby. Since I don't have much time I'm looking to book a tour. However, tours for one person are outside of my budget.

So is anyone interested in joining up for a tour to make it cheaper for all of us? It would need to be this weekend. Hopefully Sunday May 29 to Monday May 30.

Thanks!

Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone could advise with the best option to get the Azeri visa for a UK citizen? The official Azeri embassy site suggests going through what looks to be a third party site which talks about an upcoming change of address (dated 2014) you should post your passport to - naturally this worries me slightly (also worrying is that the official Azeri embassy misspells 'United Kingdom'!). How does the eVisa process work, is it a complete substitute for a physical one (I'm…

Ok. There's nothing to be done about this (I just feel the need to complain) but, on the off chance any official types monitor these sites here goes my complaint.

I'm planning some summer travels to Georgia. I thought it would be interesting to tack on a few days in Azerbaijan. I'm currently living in Bulgaria and when I took this job my big choice came down to Baku or Sofia. So I thought it would be interesting to check out Baku. Checked out trains, some things to do etc.

Then I went and…

There is an old thread about this topic, though it was closed by a moderator a couple of years ago, so now I wonder if anyone has more recent info about applying and obtaining visas for Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan in Baku.

  1. What documents do I have to produce to back my applications? Letter of Invitation, bookings, etc?

  2. Opening hours and locations of the embassies for visa applications.

I am going there to Baku in the end of June and hope to enter Turkmenistan and…

Hi all,

we are planing a trip that leads us from Russia to Azerbaijan travelling with our own car. We do not have enough time to arrange the Visa for Azerbaijan ahead. Is it feasible to get it somewhere in the Stans or Russia (we are both German)? I read in another post that Bishkek worked well for some Dutch people.

Thanksa lot!

I'm heading for the Caucasus in 3 weeks. The trip is set up in the order Armenia then Georgia then Azerbaijan. I know it's not the best order but it is what it is. I already have my Azeri visa, so that's under control.

Given recent events, I have no intent of going to Nagorno-Karabakh. But I was wondering if anyone has any recent info on how challenging it is to enter Azerbaijan (by air) from Georgia with an Armenian stamp in your passport. Are we talking a few extra questions and dirty…

Hi everyone,

We're planning a trip to the Caucasus with a group of friends, and we need a "Letter of Invitation" (LOI) to Azerbaijan to apply for a visa to the country. We reserved a hotel in Baku for the first nights, can we just ask them to write us that letter? Or does it have to be a more "official" thing? How did you get yours?

I'm an EU citizen and my friends are from the US (if that's relevant).
Thanks a lot for your help!
