      Places "not to go to" / local culture

      Azerbaijan Sep 1, 2014 at 10:55 PM

      It seems our travel (as long as we get visas ;) ) will take place. We are browsing internet looking for travel experiences, tips etc. But sometimes one can find informations such as "its better not to go there". And I am not thinking of NG Karabagh.
      Are there regions / cities / places where tourist shouldn`t go? We will be travelling in "group" of two.

      And the second question - I`d like to ask how should we behave talking to "locals" or staying at their homes in terms of sex (my wife). Can she take a part in discussions etc or will it be rather bad idea unless she will be asked? I definitively don`t want to offend anybody but would like to know the people better as that is one of the reasons why are we travelling.

      Round trip - best way to do it

      Azerbaijan Aug 28, 2014 at 11:14 PM

      Hi,
      Hi,
      me and my wife are thinking of an trip to Azerbaijan by the end of September. As we like to see as much as possible, we would like to do a kind of a round trip. I am wondering what would be the better way - rental car or combination of hired car + driver with public transportation. I am not thinking only on costs, but also on potential "risk" that we will stuck somewhere because we`d liked the place, stayed overnight and with no chance to leave ;) And the second question - are the drivers willingly to just do the one way trip or it doesn`t matter because the price will be the same?

      We don`t prefer crowded tourist places - we would like to feel the "real" country with it`s forgotten places etc.

      If rental car is the way to do - will small car survive it, or we should look for some 4wd (assuming there are places off the beaten path worth to see).

      Thanks!

      Azerbaijan e-Visa - Registration necessary?

      Azerbaijan Sep 1, 2014 at 3:06 PM

      Hello all,

      In preparation of my trip to Azerbaijan I have read on the internet that I might have to register after 3 working days in the country. I already have my e-Visa and will probably stay 4-5 days in Baku.

      Is this registration definitely necessary? Where and how can I do this?

      Any recent experiences with this?

      Thanks for your help.

      VISA: Entry to Azerbaijan with an Armenian stamp in the passport

      Azerbaijan Jun 19, 2014 at 3:32 AM

      Hello,

      Does anyone of you has any experiences with visa regulations of Azerbaijan and entry to the country with Armenian stamps in the passport?

      I am a German passport holder and have just recently been to Armenia. Since about 1,5 years Germans don't need a Visa for Armenia anymore, but of course I got a couple of Armenian stamps in my passport. No, I haven't visited Nagorno Karabagh.

      I have checked the info on the webpage of the "German Department of Foreign Affairs", where it roughly says something like this:

      "Travellers with an Armenian visa must be prepared for longer waiting times and questioning at the border."

      As said I don't have an Armenian visa in my passport, but Armenian stamps, which probably doesn't make much difference.

      Any help is much appreciated.

      Hi!I am italian and I need urgent help. I will go at the end of June in Azerbaijan to visit my boyfriend who works there so i will stay in his apartment, NOT IN HOTEL. I CANNOT do a letter of invitation for me. An azeri travel agency proposed to do for me an e-visa, they will do the invitation letter and the fake reservation in hotel. My italian travel agency said generally the azeri emigration registration (or something similar) checks if the hotel is reserved and also paid. Possibly the azeri travel agency has friends in the minister of foreign affairs?Who knows? Is it risky to apply for this e-visa?I mean will I risk to be rejected at the airport? Please help me :(

      Hello,

      I'm Axel and I'm from Amsterdam. I'm so exited because this May I will visit Baku with my family. It was always a dream for us to visit your country and especially Baku, one of the most beautiful city's in the world. We had a few questions about our citytrip

      1. There are a few mosques in the Old City, is it possible to visit them? Do they have an entrance fee?

      2. Is it possible to visit the Heydar Aliyev Cultural center? Does it have an entrance fee?

      3. We have heard that there is a restaurant in the TV Tower of Baku. Is that true? Is it a nice/safe restaurant? Is it expensive? We love to see the view of Baku from the tower

      4. Is it possible to visit the Holy Myrrhbearers Cathedral, The Church of the Saviour, The Turkish Mosque and the Taza Pir Mosque? Do they have an entrance fee?

      5. What is the entrance fee of the Carpet Museum?

      6. Is it possible to visit the Mukhtarov Palace (Palace of Happiness)?

      7. Are there many tourists in Baku?

      We will visit Baku for 5 days. We are going to the fire temples and the National Park Gobustan. Do you guys have some more tips for us? We love to see al the beautiful architecture of Baku.

      I havent been to Azerbijan yet but i do know a thing or 2 about the visas and from what i have read people have got Azeri visas in a few days from an agency in.

      I hear this new thig called e visa http://evisa.mfa.gov.az/. I have registered but i am yet to fill out forms as i wont be there till Aug.

      Now i am wondering if anyone has used this serivice in the past 12 months. Is it a way where your details are approve by the MFA and then a code/visa is sent to an Azerbijan embassy for the person to collect. Because if thats the case its meerly the same way how you get an Iran visa (pay company to send details to MFA, get code from MFA. Go apply for visa at the chosen embassy).
