Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance.

Travelers to Azerbaijan must fill out a customs declaration upon arrival that is to be presented to customs officials when departing the country.  You should declare all items of value on this form.  Failure to declare currency and items of value can result in fines or other penalties.  If your customs form is lost or stolen report the loss to the police to obtain a certificate to show customs officials when you depart the country.

Azerbaijan’s customs officials may enforce strict regulations concerning the temporary importation into or export from Azerbaijan items such as alcohol, tobacco, jewelry, religious materials, art or artifacts, antiquities and business equipment.  Personal medicines with a doctor’s statement can be imported without the permission of the Azerbaijani Ministry of Health.  U.S. citizens may not import firearms into Azerbaijan.  While there is no limit to the amount of currency imported, if more money is exported than imported, the traveler is obligated to prove it was legally obtained.
