Can I go to Armenia and then to AZ?

I read that I have to go to AZ first and then Armenia.

I must not have Armenia in my passport.

I will not be going to the disputed area.

I'm getting different information and I want to verify what is correct.

Please tell me. If anyone can provide a link to an official site I would appreciate it.

I understand that to go from Armenia, I must pass through Georgia to get to AZ. But if I have a Armenia stamp, I can't get it?

You should have no problem as long as you don't have a Nagorno-Karabakh stamp in your passport. There are a few posters on the LP forums who went in this order. Sorry nothing official on the topic.

i also read that you can't have certain things with armenia written on it. for example the lonely planet book.

but what about souvenirs. i read that they search your bags. so if i had an armenian product:

1 will they take it.

2 will that deny me entry into AZ.

thanks beentheredone...

Can't help with those specific questions. To avoid any problems why not just go in the other direction. You have to go through Georgia regardless.

I have gone to Azerbaijan, then to Armenia, and back to Azerbaijan without any problems because of the visas in my passport. I have heard stories of border guards in Azerbaijan throwing away travel guides to Armenia, though I haven't actually experienced that myself.

I've used the same passport for Armenia and Azerbaijan a number of times. You might get a dirty look from the passport stamper but that's all.

As long as you are not Armenian then there is no reason why you should not be able to get into Azerbaijan after travelling to Armenia. As an earlier poster mentioned - if you visited Nagorno-Karabakh, first, then technically you are persona non grata and then they will not let you in - but typically this would be based on a visa stamp in your passport of NKR.

Good luck

Dear RachelSFnative,

You should have no problem as long as you don't have a Nagorno-Karabakh stamp in your passport.

The Nagorno Karabagh visa is a separate piece of paper. You can't enter Azerbaijan from NK but you can from Armenia. Just be sure you put your NK visa away somewhere.

As long as you're not an Armenian Citizen going with an Armenian Passport or a passport that has a visa stamp of Nagorno-Karabakh you will be fine. Just have all documents ready. I flew into Baku from Tbilisi, I had visited Armenia prior to Georgia. The immigration officer in Baku called over a Senior Officer whom had my passport looked over since I had an Armenian Visa. After that they allowed me in the country.
