Passengers over 18 years old - the presence of a COVID-passport (an official certificate confirming the completion of the full course of vaccination (only J&J/Janssen and Sputnik Light a single dose), official certificate of recovery from COVID-19) or certificate of contraindication to COVID-19 vaccination. COVID-passport, immune certificate or certificate of contraindication to C0VID-19 vaccination must have electronic verification attributes and must be issued by the state only. These documents will be checked during check-in at the airport.

For Transit Passenger(s), travelling via Baku (GYD) the rules/conditions governing entry at the final destination of the transit passenger(s) shall be applicable. Passengers must check the IATA Travel Centre before flight to get the latest updates on the requirements at the country they are travelling to.  If the  destination country  requires PCR test, QR code on the certificate is desirable, since it allows to get detailed information about the PCR test result more quickly. Thus, passengers who present a certificate with QR code embedded will pass through border control faster, since this unique code will provide full information about their PCR test results.

Under the existing requirements, passengers presenting certificates of negative PCR test results for COVID-19 without QR code embedded are expected to undergo a more thorough check. Passengers should note that such check will require additional time to be carried out.
