Our visa application process was extremely painless. As a Canadian, all information for the visa application process can be found here: http://ottawa.mfa.gov.az/content/42

To obtain single entry tourist visas, confirmation of a hotel booking was required--no need for a personal letter of invitation, and no need for tour group arrangements. I made a reservation a month in advance through Booking.com for a hotel in Baku, and the hotel itself was able to provide me with a signed and stamped PDF…

azeri visa

Hi, i'm an italian girl and I would like to visit Georgia and Azerbaijan.
now i'm trying to obtain an Azeri Visa ( tourist visa) but it's seems very difficult...
Probably i would like to arrive in Baku by night train from Tbilisi,
i read that should be easier to obtain the visa after a request in Georgia than to request in an azerbaijan embassy in Italy...is it possible?

My wife and I propose taking the evening train (Train 38, 1st class “Spalny Vagon”: 2-bed sleeper) from Baku to Tbilisi the second week of September. The railway's web site (difficult for a non-Azeri to navigate in English) provides that one may make on-line reservations only during the ten-day period preceding departure. Accordingly, I may wish to delay making reservations until I arrive in Baku three days before train departure.
How much demand is there for 1st class 2-bed sleeper…

Hi there,

I've read conflicting reports on whether it's worth buying the ticket for the Baku-Tbilisi train in advance online, or whether it's perfectly fine to turn up on the day and get it in Baku? Obviously I don't want to risk it being fully booked if possible, but I'm not totally sure the Azerbaijani Railways site looks fully up to date(?). Does anyone have any advice that has done this trip recently? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

My girlfriend and I will be arriving in Baku late on a Wednesday night and we will then have three full days to explore, as we leave on a Sunday morning. What day trips would you suggest? We are thinking of visiting Gobustan and the mud volcanoes but not sure whether Quba or Sheki are doable, or if we should spend 2 days in Baku.

Also, does anyone have any suggestions for live Azeri music venues in Baku (similar to meyhanes in Turkey)?

Thanks in advance!
