On 1 April 2013, the amendments adopted on March 5, 2013 to the Law of the Republic of Azerbaijan “On registration to the place of residence and sojourn” entered into force.
In according with these amendments foreigners and stateless persons, intending to stay in the Republic of Azerbaijan for more than 10 days, need to be registered at the State Migration Service of the Republic of Azerbaijan (www.migration.gov.az) within three days upon arrival to Azerbaijan.
Upon arrival to hotels, sanatoria, boarding houses, camping sits, tourist centers, hospitals, other public places, apartments, as well as other residential premises, owner or administration (host party) of such residential premises must send corresponding application and a copy of the passport of relevant foreigner and stateless person to the State Migration Service of the Republic of Azerbaijan within 10 days.
The application form and a copy of passport of the foreigners and stateless persons can be submitted by host party to the State Migration Service of the Republic of Azerbaijan:
After submitting of the application form and copy of passport State Migration Service of the Republic of Azerbaijan registers foreign citizens and stateless persons in accordance with their place of sojourn and provides notice of registration to the host party in one day.

If a foreign citizen or stateless person changes his/her place of sojourn, they must re-register at their new place of sojourn.
There is no fee for registration to the place of sojourn.
