Effective 12 January 2018, e-visas obtained through the ASAN Viza website will allow stays of up to 90 days, rather than the previous 30 days, and multiple entries, rather than a single entry, as previously.

However, as of the date of writing, the ASAN Viza site has not yet been updated to reflect this change to the Azerbaijan Migration Code.

The ASAN e-visa system was launched on 10 January 2017. Nationals of 94 countries are eligible for an e-visa valid for entry within 90 days for tourism and business purposes. The e-visa does not allow work activities, for which a work visa is required.

Standard processing takes up to three working days, and an urgent e-visa option, ready in under three hours, is also available.

Qualifying nationals will soon be able to take advantage of the longer duration of stay and multiple entries for business trips to Azerbaijan.
