Is it now possible for Azerbaijan citizens to have dual nationality, as mentioned on your website on the page headed "Embassy and Consulate of Azerbaijan"? If this is possible, can people who have become British also apply to be dual citizens?

Jonathan Evans

Can you please advise whether or not you have standard documents available online? I have a daughter who is a Azerbaijan citizen aged 17, who wants to study in Turkey. I need to provide permission for her to travel outside Azerbaijan, to have a Azerbaijan passport and for her mother to have absolute authority concerning matters relating to her welfare and any legal concerns. Standard documents would be very helpful. Kind regards.


Can you please confirm that a PCR test is no longer required to enter Azerbaijan?
