greetings from Baku, Azerbaijan
At first, fill out the online e-visa application with all important information and print it out. Then make the copy of the first site of your passport, flight and hotel booking confirmation (you have book return flight or train, but your flight back can be from different country, for eg. Georgia). Ask your hotel for the confirmation of your booking (the one from the internet, isn’t enough, you’ll need an official document, signed by your hotel).
The visa cost around 35 EUR and for example in Vienna, you will be given a check to be paid in local bank for fee 4 EUR. The official time for issuing an Azerbaijan tourist visa is 15 working days, but it may take up to one month so brace yourselves with a lot of patience, which is worth since Azerbaijan is beautiful.
