Azerbaijan visa requirements for Kuwait residents

To make it easier for Kuwaiti residents to travel to Azerbaijan, the Azerbaijan Government has issued electronic visas since December 2017.

The Azerbaijan e-visa is now accessible for Kuwaitis, making obtaining an Azerbaijan visa easier than before. The website Azerbaijan Immigration Services allows you to apply for an Azerbaijan e-visa online.

Why do Kuwait citizens need an Azerbaijan tourist visa?

The short answer is that Kuwait is not on the list of visa-exempt countries for Azerbaijan. Kuwait travelers who want to enter the country and remain there need to obtain a visa beforehand. Fortunately, Kuwait nationals now can use Azerbaijan electronic visas instead of regular visas.
