About the centre

The demand for Azerbaijani visas has grown rapidly in recent years. To provide a better service for visa applicants, the Azerbaijani Embassy in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland drawing on the practice of some other countries, decided to introduce an Azerbaijani Visa Service Centre.

Azerbaijan Visa Centre is responsible for receiving visa applications for visit to the Republic of Azerbaijan from ordinary passport holders who are UK, Ireland, Iceland, Denmark citizens and citizens of other countries possessing UK, Ireland, Iceland, Denmark permanent residence, long term student or work permits, collecting visa fees on behalf of the Azerbaijani Embassy and returning processed visa applications.

Holders of diplomatic passport must submit their applications directly to the Azerbaijan Embassy in London. 

Azerbaijani Visa Centre has no involvement in the visa assessment and decision- making process. Whether a visa is to be issued or not to be issued, and what type of visa to be issued as well as its period of validity, number of entry and duration of stay shall be decided by the Azerbaidjani Embassy in the light of Azerbaijan’s relevant laws and regulations.
