New Zealand Government advice for Azerbaijan

Flag of Azerbaijan

When travelling to Azerbaijan, you should always get travel insurance in case the worst happens. To help you ensure you travel safely, we have included the travel advice from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade for Azerbaijan.

There is extreme risk to your security in the Nagorno-Karabakh region and the surrounding military-occupied area due to political tension and the potential for armed conflict. We advise against all travel to this area.

There is some risk to your security elsewhere in Azerbaijan due to the potential for civil unrest and we advise caution.

This area is subject to an ongoing dispute between Azerbaijan and Armenia. A ceasefire is in place, however there are sporadic violations which, in the past, have resulted in a number of deaths and injuries. Landmines are also a hazard in the vicinity.

New Zealanders intending to travel to the Nagorno-Karabakh region against our advice should note that the Government of Azerbaijan requires you to seek prior permission from an Azerbaijani Embassy. If you fail to seek such permission, you will be denied future re-entry into Azerbaijan.

Demonstrations occur from time to time in Azerbaijan, mainly in Baku. We recommend you avoid all demonstrations and large political gatherings as they have the potential to turn violent.

There is an underlying threat from terrorism throughout the country. Although any attack is unlikely to be directed against foreigners, New Zealanders could be caught up in an indiscriminate attack.

New Zealanders travelling or living in Azerbaijan should have a comprehensive travel insurance policy in place that includes provision for medical evacuation by air.

New Zealanders in Azerbaijan are encouraged to register their details with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
