I bought a ticket with Aeroflot from Copenhagen -> Baku (Azerbaijan), and returning from Yerevan (Armenia) to Copenhagen. My plan was to backpack Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia.
I have overlooked the visa requirements. It seems getting a visa for Azerbaijan is laborious to say the least. I will not tour Azerbaijan after all.
My new plan: I will just buy a ticket from Baku -> Tbilisi (Georgia) ($120) and tour Georgia and Armenia only.
Am I right in thinking I won't need any visa?
Normally on flights with a connection my luggage is checked through to the end destination, so I don't have to 'arrive' at the intermediate airport, I just go through to the relevant gate. But in this case I will be taking a separate flight, and need to exit to arrivals in order to check in to my flight.
Does anyone have experience of Baku/Azerbaijan, or this scenario at any airport?
If I need a transit visa, should I get on in advance, or expect to get one at the airport if I have an onward ticket?
I have a UK passport.
