Why do Swedish travelers need an Azerbaijan tourist visa?

The reason Sweden requires an Azerbaijani tourist visa is because of the Schengen Agreement, which requires countries to have border checks in order to prevent illegal immigration and terrorism.

Sweden is not on the visa-exemption list for Azerbaijan, so Swedish travelers who want to visit Azerbaijan and remain in this beautiful country should obtain a visa beforehand. The electronic visa system makes it easier for Swedish nationals to get a visa, eliminating the need to visit the Embassy or Consulate as before.

How long can Swedish citizens stay in Azerbaijan with an e-Visa?

According to the Swedish Embassy in Baku, expats from Sweden can stay in Azerbaijan for up to three months.

The Azerbaijani e-Visa for Swedish nationals is valid for 90 days from the date of arrival, allowing a 30-day stay duration with a single entry. The travel permit automatically expires after the date specified on the visa and cannot be used to enter Azerbaijan again.
