Very important: Travel Warning to the Occupied Territories of the Republic of Azerbaijan

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan would like to remind all nationals of foreign countries wishing to travel to Nagorno-Karabakh and other occupied regions of the Republic of Azerbaijan that due to continuing occupation by the Armed Forces of the Republic of Armenia, these areas are temporarily out of control of the Republic of Azerbaijan. Any visit without the consent of the Republic of Azerbaijan to the above-mentioned territories, which are internationally recognised as an integral part of Azerbaijan is considered as violation of sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Azerbaijan and as a breach of national legislation, as well as relevant norms and principles of international law. Accordingly, the Embassy calls all foreign nationals to refrain from travelling to the occupied territories in and around the Nagorno-Karabakh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan. The Embassy reminds that those who travelled to the occupied territories without prior permission of the Republic of Azerbaijan will be denied the entry to the Republic of Azerbaijan.
