Hi Andrewas far as I know, its not possible to reserve tickets online yet. The train to Baku leaves at from the same place where you buy the tickets. Hi Max still no word yet unfortunately! Im not entirely sure. I think its just a formality as long as you havent been to Karabakh. An hour later, we pulled into Bakus ultra-modern main railway station a rather impressive introduction to the city.

Hi ems! I cant say for sure, but when we travelled in April there were a lot of unsold bunks on the train. So here goes my concern, if they do it to Indians and Pakistani citezens, they can as well do it to a Bolivian one. I have a question, my visa is marked 27 of September. Thank you so much for such an incredible work and help! That company does seem to take advantage in terms of price. For what its worth, I have never heard of anyone being denied entry to Georgia as long as theyre holding the correct visa.

I too booked via the website GeoTrend. Theres almost no precise information online so Im a bit worried. First of all, thanks for your very useful guide!

Sincerely wish you and your friend all the best for a safe trip!

If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments below.

Some days before crossing the border to Azerbaijan, I spent a few days in Armenia. Hi Emily! I am a fil too and yes we need to apply visa. I believe its a nice experience. Hi Ann! We will travel 2022 how is train situation now and is it ok for fully vaccinated tourist coming into both countries.

Some travellers have reported issues with the Azerbaijan Railways website. Check out Seat 61 for a start. Nowadays (at October 9, 2019) You will have to register with Azeri police on arrival if you plan to travel for more than 15 days (previously was 10 days). Thanks Important: You need to present your passport (hard copy) to purchase an international train ticket.

For some reason I cant copy & paste any of this, which makes it less useful. You may get questioned at immigration, which is why I recommend having your travel details on you (dates, name of hotel in AZ and contact info). I bring it up because I didnt realise until we arrived in Baku!

Hello Emily, thank you for a very informative post about the journey from Tbilisi to Baku. Ive updated the post .

I will add it to the post. My friend and I are travelling to Azerbaijan and Georgia from Russia. I havent heard from anyone whos had that experience in Tbilisi before. This complete guide to riding the Tbilisi to Baku train covers the following topics: All information presented here is correct to the best of my knowledge and updated every month.

Do you know of also the night train service has been restored? I am waiting for the border to reopen too. So Im a US citizen planning to see Armenia then Georgia then Azerbaijan and then go back to The US from Georgia . Does this answer your question? May weather will be lovely.

Ive done the trip in May and didnt have any problems getting tickets at the station. To answer your questions yes, its perfectly fine to book a single second class ticket.

Im really sorry to hear this. thanks for the post, it is super useful!

Thats what we did (travelling at the same time of year) with no problems. In any case, its always advisable to consult official sources , Thanks so much for the update on police registration. You can definitely lock the cabin from the inside, but as far as I know you cant lock it from the outside. Well, what Ive read was that a lot of Indians, Pakistni and Iranians are being denied the entrence to the country with valid visa and all the documents required for no reason-given. Safe to say the procedure was a little more thorough. If you crossed the border into (Nagorno-Karabakh / Republic of Artsakh) the disputed region between Azerbaijan and Armenia you will be permanently denied entry into Azerbaijan. The only thing I have to comment is that I crossed the borders of Georgia-Azerbaijan by train, Georgia-Armenia with a rental car and Armenia-Arsakht (Nagorno Karabakh) with a local in his car, in this order. Quick question about the visa Trains depart/arrive at Station Square. As for the train, it was winter when we travelled, so Im not sure about the temperature. It takes 5 days to get the visa.

Officially the visa takes up to three days to be approved.

Great post,sorry if im making contact the wrong way. So it depends what you prefer. Hi Joe, When are you travelling? Hi Lan, I didnt use an agency, so I dont have any first-hand recommendations. I hope this helps. Geotrend normally offers a ticket reservation service for one-way and return Tbilisi to Baku / Baku to Tbilisi train tickets. I also pack cold tea infusers (I like Twinings ginger and orange tea) on long journeys, especially when theres no hot water dispenser. If you have any recent experience using the website to buy tickets, please feel free to leave an update for other travellers in the comments section at the end of this post. like Matt Ill be in Armenia for a few days, hopefully there wont be any issues. To be safe, you can reserve your tickets in advance. In case the train will be fully booked, are there other options? The sleeper train is an affordable, safe and convenient way to travel between Georgia and Azerbaijan. I opted for second class and only had to share with one other. I really want to travel from Baku to Tbilisi next spring with my 3-year old, do you think the trip would be okay for me and him? You may be eligible for an e-visa. Your blog is AMAZING and has been so helpful to me.

Thank you so much! A single-entry 30-day tourist visa costs 25 USD and the site accepts both MasterCard and Visa. On what grounds was this person denied entry? I hope you have time to check out Tbilisi, too. Also, does the night train stop anywhere before Baku please? Good luck! Can anyone help? You can pay an extra fee (35 USD) for expedited processing within three hours. Great point about the F1, Michael!

We passed yet more guards and a gnarly looking German Shepherd in the corridor. I dont have to enter Azerbaijan on the first day it is valid? I was a little apprehensive about immigration formalities on the Azeri side of the border. I dont know the specific visa requirements for GCC residents, unfortunately. I must admit that there is less information to find on the Internet about this way of traveling from Tbilisi to Baku and your post blog makes it very clear to me. Ramona. Thanks for your comment!

Mainly want to know so I can book a place to stay near by.

(Different railways, different ticketing systems.) 1. Unfortunately theres no way to check those fares online (only for Baku to Tbilisi). You were right I was fooled by some old news.

Any experiences about going that way? You mentioned the berth got closed for the night but there are later stops throughout the night. You know if is it possible to buy AZN money in Tbilisi for the travel!? A female official then came in and after we had pulled our bags down again, performed a perfunctory search of all our luggage. Great, all I needed. I just spoke to Akmal at Geotrend and hes helped clarify the price for me. This helped us greatly on our travel between the 2 cities. Having said all this, Ive also done Baku to Tbilisi overland by marshtruka and its a very long journey. I have partnered with Geotrend to offer my readers an exclusive discount on Tbilisi Baku and Tbilisi Yerevan train tickets pre-purchased online. I am planing to visit Yerevan , Tbilisi and Baku in last week of May and first week of June 2020. Thanks again. I had not problem to enter Azerbaijan the immigration officier actually just asked me to confirm that I was in Yerevan for tourism purpose, and the custom officier had a quick search of my luggage. May/June is heading into the busy season so I would recommend buying tickets in advance. hi!

The process is straightforward: Fill out their online inquiry form, and a Geotrend consultant will check availability for your dates. This makes it really difficult to assess information shared by other travellers. I cant say for sure about the berth, though. Good to know theres another online option available if you need it. Note: In October 2019, Azerbaijan Railways announced it was replacing its old Soviet model locomotives with new French made PRIMA M4s. Or should I say no? Hi Eric!

Discover all the best things to do in Georgia with my free 25-page PDF guide: 365 Things to Do in Georgia. If you are planning on visiting Armenia after Azerbaijan, I highly recommend the post below, which has some vital information about the border crossing what you need to bring with you. I applied for mine and just put the date of my flight to Georgia from the UK on it, even though I wont be entering into Azerbaijan on this date it is valid for when I eventually do. The only reliable way to buy train tickets is in-person at the station. Im going to be taking this same trip in two days and in trying to find some recent details I came across your post. However, be sure to *not* bring any Armenian items to the train. Thanks for info! Thanks for this blog post.

Any tips?

We are planning to fly to Baku and stay a couple of days before going to Tbilisi. Wish I could help but I cant give visa advice. My friend, once theyve denied his visa, went there and they werent helpful at all. (We are Australian, so we dont require a visa for Georgia.). Please note: The land border between Georgia and Azerbaijan remains closed to tourists and the train service between Tbilisi and Baku is still suspended.

There is only one service to Baku overnight train number 37 so you dont need to specify a time. You will have room mates. Ive seen repeative posts about that so it doesnt seem to be just about one person. This is the best information, Ive found so far on traveling to Tbilisi and Baku. Thanks again . Hi,

Can you please share with us when/what time where you able to get your Baku entry stamp?

I cant seem to find which train station I will arrive at in Tbilisi since there are two on all the maps Ive seen. Im not sure what you would do in this case if you have a return train ticket booked and in hand, I suppose you could just show them that. We chose two second-class tickets and handed over our passports. The question on all their lips was this: Have you ever been to Armenia? I havent read anything that suggests an Armenian stamp in your passport will prevent you from entering Azerbaijan but I could be wrong.

E-visa is a great improvement and indeed much cheaper. We cant do the online booking as we will be going straight off to the mountains on arrival! I receive a confirmation by Migration AZ after I ask them. Two days before we were set to depart Tbilisi for Baku, we caught the metro to Station Square and bought our train tickets in person.

The border between Armenia and Azerbaijan is closed, so you cant travel between the two countries by train, road or any other means. Hi, Emily, Loved the blog, few of us travelling from Ireland and hope to fly to Baku for few days then get train to Tbliski. Hi Emily FYI it is now 91Gel for first class. We are planning to take overnight train. Thanks in advance, What is it we should do? Can you pause at the train station when you arrive and buy your return tickets then? Thats what I would do.
