Visas to Azerbaijan to be Issued in 3-5 Days

The issue of reducing the time of issuing visas to foreigners traveling to Azerbaijan is on the agenda, the country's Minister of Culture and Tourism Abulfas Garayev said.

He said that the visa processing time is expected to be reduced from 10 days to 3-5 days.

Today, over 60 firms are engaged in issuing visas in Azerbaijan, the minister said, adding that over 10,000 online tourist visas were issued in 2015 alone.

Jointly with other state structures, Azerbaijan's Foreign Ministry is working out proposals and draft decisions for resolving this issue, Garayev said.

"I hope that accreditation based on the rules approved by the Cabinet of Ministers will be carried out all over again," the minister said. "Compliance of tourism companies with these rules should be strictly controlled."

He added that creation of special centers is also on the agenda.

President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev gave several instructions July 13 during the meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on the results of the country's socio-economic development in the first half of 2015 and the objectives for the future. During that meeting, the president clearly pointed out the main tasks in this sphere: visa facilitation, reducing the air ticket prices, construction of three and two star hotels.
