Is it possible that there will be problems getting a Turkmenistan transmit visa for the Turkmenbashi - Baku ferry if you only have the new Azerbaijan e-visa rather than the full visa in your passport? I guess no one knows at this early stage.

In my opinion, the type of the Azeri visa will be not an issue, but the visas for Turkmenistan are rejected quite illogically anyways, so nobody knows what can be a reason for it... Anyway, we're planning to try to get Turkmeni transit visas in Tashkent for the opposite way from Uzbekistan to Europe via Azerbaijan (having the new e-visa). I'll write about the outcome...

E-Visas aren't a new thing in Azerbaijan, so unless the Turkmen embassy where you apply exclusively consists of noobs, you should be fine

I received my (British passport) E-visa in less than 24 hrs, $24.
Excellent.
The form is very easy. For accommodation I put 1000 Camels hostel. There is nothing saying "invited by".
The scan of your passport needs to be readable & small enough in Mega Bytes, up to 1.2 (I think). Mine was too big & the form flashed red to tell me so. I shrank it down & it was accepted.

Took the passport pictures with cell phone camera.

Going to Georgia in March, and may take the train to Baku as well, and so applied for an Azeri e-visa.

Being a curious MOFO, I tried applying with my national ID card instead of my passport (I'm an EU citizen), just to see how it turns out.

Low and behold, I got it!

It shall be interesting to test this at the border :D

We just got a Turkmenistan transit visa using our printed Azerbaijan e visa. Didn't need anything in our passport

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to this site for so much brilliant information. I'm a UK passport holder and applied for my e-visa on Saturday about 21:21, paid my $24, and got email confirmation today at 13:30 that my e-visa was ready.

Can't wait to go on holiday!!! :D :D

I just got my Azerbaijan visa via the e-visa portal. I have written a step-by-step guide to obtain the visa, in case you're curious. It's a pretty straight forward process.Happy travel to Azerbaijan! I will be there in May if anyone wants to meet up :)
