Azerbaijan Visa (AGAIN) - ISTANBUL consulateAs visas for Azerbaijan is a bit more complicated than many other countries, I sincerely apologize to posting and reposting this topic for readers. Nonetheless....
Can anyone please provide relatively recent experience of obtaining an Azerbaijan visa at their consulate in *Istanbul*? (Previous post may be outdated information.) How much time did it take, cost, Letter of Invitation, etc?
Has anyone any success with obtaining an eVisa as published on Azerbaijan consular web sites?
Has anyone ever obtained a transit visa for Azerbaijan? Comments on time, costs, time of stay allowance, etc?
We have EU and US passports.
With much thanks!

1Not super close but not impossible -- very straightforward to get an Azeri visa in Batumi.

4I found an interesting article at Azerbaijan 24:
"Georgian visas are valid for transit through Azerbaijan for a period of up to 5 days. If you have a valid visa for another CIS country, you will be allowed to stay in Azerbaijan for 24 hours without having a visa".
This seems to imply that anyone with a Georgian visa can stay for 5 days immediately thereafter in Azerbaijan, or with a CIS country visa, up to 24 hours immediately thereafter, without any additional procedures.
If there is anyone having recently succeeded with this, it would be highly appreciated if you would share.

5Is it even possible to get the Azerbaijan visa at the consulates in Turkey?
A Turkish friend from Istanbul called the Azerbaijani embassy for me, and they told him that only Turkish citizens or permanent residents could get their Azerbaijan visa here. I even have a LOI from an Azerbaijani friend in Baku, but nothing can be done apparently. My Turkish friend also told me that a Russian friend of his tried to get an EU visa at the French embassy in Ankara once, but same thing, you had to be Turkish citizen or resident to apply for a visa here. So maybe it's the same for all embassies in Turkey? Is that possible?
Quite annoying, so I guess Batumi it is then.
