Warning on travel to occupied territories

Warning for foreign nationals wishing to travel to the occupied territories of the Republic of Azerbaijan

The Embassy reminds all nationals of foreign countries wishing to travel to the Nagorno-Karabakh region and other occupied territories 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 recognized as an integral part of Azerbaijan is considered as a 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 on all foreign nationals to refrain themselves from travelling to the occupied territories in and around the Nagorno-Karabakh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

The Embassy reminds all nationals of foreign countries that those who traveled to the Nagorno-Karabakh region and other occupied territories without prior permission of the Republic of Azerbaijan will be denied the entry to the Republic of Azerbaijan.
