I just noticed in Wikipedia that as an Australian citizen I can get a visa for Azerbaijan upon arrival but for the huge price of $100.

So is that price only for the on-arrival issue of the visa or is it also if I apply for it at an embassy before my trip?

According to the Ministry of Foreign Afairs of Azerbaijan I think it should only cost $40 USD if you get it in advance.

Wow that's really confusing. It also mentions a "touristic visa" which is only $20 but you must have a "travel voucher", which it doesn't say anything else about. Plus there is something about a 2 manat fee for "granting visa on the basis of invitation letter". Then it links to a PDF file which says it's $58 for a single entry visa for an Australian! – hippietrail Oct 24 '11 at 7:39
Yes I wasn't really sure which of this preconditions apply for you, so I just linked the root site ;) – RoflcoptrException Oct 24 '11 at 7:58
If it's this cheap then I really want to go! I feel more questions are in order... – hippietrail Oct 24 '11 at 10:43
