Get visa to ARMENIA
U.S. citizens are allowed visa-free entry to Armenia for up to 180 days per year. For visits of longer than 180 days, you must apply for a residency permit through the Armenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Visit the Embassy of Armenia’s website for the most current visa information.
Armenian legislation permits Armenian citizens to hold dual citizenship. Even if you naturalized in the United States, the Government of Armenia may still consider you an Armenian citizen. Children born in the United States to two Armenian citizens are also considered Armenian citizens. Please read the information about Armenian citizenship at the Embassy of Armenia’s website. Armenian citizens are subject to certain entry/exit and Armenian military service requirements. See the “Local Laws and Special Circumstances” section below.
If you are of Armenian descent and possess an Armenian “special passport,” you still need a valid U.S. passport to enter Armenia. Border guards have refused to admit U.S. citizens carrying “special passports” (a residency permit). Please visit the Embassy of Armenia website for further details.
Traveling to the region of Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding territories via Armenia could make you ineligible to travel to Azerbaijan in the future.
Engaging in commercial activities inside Nagorno-Karabakh can make it difficult to conduct business inside Azerbaijan or with the Government of Azerbaijan. For more information on commercial activities in Nagorno-Karabakh, please visit the Country Commercial Guide.
