VISAS TO NAGORNO-KARABAKH REPUBLIC

Visas to Nagorno-Karabakh Republic are available for 3,000 AMD. Note that you will not be permitted to enter Azerbaijan if you have a Karabakh visa in your passport. Azerbaijan will block passports containing stamps or visas from Nagorno-Karabakh, if your passport shows any evidence of travel to the Republic of Nagorno Karabakh – which Azerbaijani authorities consider an illegal separatist entity – such as a Karabakh visa and entry stamps, and with any other evidence of visiting Nagorno Karabakh, Azerbaijani consulates will deny you a visa. Even if you already have an Azerbaijan visa, you will be turned away and deported, or possibly arrested, and the visa will be revoked, if you attempt to enter the country with a Karabakh visa and entry stamp in your passport. If you do intend to visit Karabakh, kindly request that the Karabakh visa be left outside the passport, on a separate piece of paper. Otherwise, you will permanently be refused entry to Azerbaijan.
