New Visa Policy Facilitates Visits to Armenia

In unprecedented steps to boost tourist arrivals, Armenia has introduced a new shorter stay visa for guests.

Yerevan, Armenia, June 16, 2009 --( Until recently, most visitors to the country could only obtain a 120-day visa at a cost of around $40. The new legislation means that 21-day visas can also be obtained at the airport in Yerevan upon arrival at a cost of AMD 3000 or just over $8.

Although the majority of visitors to Armenia do require visas, they are easy to obtain from Armenian embassies overseas, at the border points and online as E-visas.
