Registration of your stay


All foreigners visiting Azerbaijan for more than 10 days have to register with State Migration Service of Azerbaijan. Registration has to be made with the place where the foreigner plans to stay. Registration has to be made within first 9 days after entering the territory of Azerbaijan. Registration is done by receiving side (hotel, apartment owner, hospital, etc) or by travelers themselves. To register a filled-in application form has to be sent to State Migration Service by:

  1. e-mail:
  2. handed in person at: 202 Binagadi Highway, 3123 Block, Binagadi district, Baku city, Azerbaijan Republic, AZ1114 (or any regional office of Migration Service)
  3. or online here:
  4. at any branch of ASAN service in Baku and Sumgayit

Documents to be emailed/posted: 1. Application 2. Copy of passport's photopage. Registration is totally free of charge

Once received State Migration Service will enter tourist's information into the so called Unified Migration Information System, registers them at the inviting party's address and informs the applicant about it within 1 business day. Registration is done for the period indicated in traveler's visa. No state fees are paid for registration. Failure to register is subject to fine of 300-350 AZN (Euros). 

If you fail to register you can go to Migration Service office where they will sort it out (either by paying fine OR banning you from entry to AZ for the next 1-2 years). Keep in mind that Migration Service operates only on weekdays and paying fine at the border is only available at Baku airport. So if you plan to exit some other way than Baku airport you just won't be able to do it over the weekend.  

Registration in Azerbaijan is essential and unavoidable. To enjoy your stay, follow the rules and make sure you are registered.
