Dubai: UAE residents can now enter Azerbaijan on a visa-on-arrival status.

Starting July 26, holders of UAE residence visa can obtain a one-month tourist visa to Azerbaijan upon arrival.

Relevant valid visa along with the passport or travel document must be presented.

This new development does away with the prior need to obtain a visa at the embassy or the consulate-general of the Republic of Azerbaijan in the UAE.

All foreigners, however, who are planning to stay in Azerbaijan for more than 15 days should register at the State Migration Service of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

Hotel staff may assist visitors on this regard on the first days of their visit. For more information, visit
