Visit Azerbaijan after visiting Armenia

Postby jdsmithaz » Fri Mar 13, 2020 4:55 pm

I understand that Azerbaijan doesn't want to give Visas if you have been to Armenia?

Under normal circumstances, you can visit Azerbaijan with an Armenian passport stamp, although you will probably be bothered/questioned/interrogated at the border. You can not visit Azerbaijan with an Nagorno-Karabakh passport stamp/visa though.

From experience, I had no problems at all in December 2017 arriving at Baku Airport with a November 2016 stamp for Armenia. No questions, just happily stamped in.

Visiting Nagorno-Karabakh as mentioned would completely disallow entry to Azerbaijan.

Best case : they send you back (unlikely to happen)
Common case : they take you to police station and charge you for illegal entry in Azerbaijan

Yeah, Baku Airport ist the most chilled place to enter AZ, and they might or might not look through your passport to find an Armenian stamp. At the land border with Georgia, they'll certainly do this. If they find one, they'll ask you a few questions about your stay in Armenia, usually not in a nice way. I have never personally heard of anyone being refused entry to Azerbaijan because of an Armenian stamp though (NKR is a totally different thing), however, German MoFA says in their travel advice that foreigners being refused entry to AZ because of an AM stamp does (very occasionally) happen.
