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!

Hi, Is there already a paved road between Qusar and Laza? and if so, are there any Marshrutkas, and how long takes the journey? If there isn't any paved road to Laza, what are my best options?
I know there is an active luxury resort 3KM from Laza, so I guess there should be something paved, but I can't find any proof about it.

Also, does someone knows if the one-day trek between Laza and Xinaliq reopened?

Thanks !

Hello, I'm going to take the Aktau-Baku Ferry in July, and then from Baku immediately by train to Tbilisi.

What is the cheapest agency you can get the Azeri e-visa through that either gives it without a hotel booking, or doesn't charge you for the hotel booking in advance (so I can cancel it after being given the e-visa)?

Cheapest I've found so far is USD 55
