Who needs to apply for a visa?

If you want to travel to Armenia, you will probably not need to apply for a visa, as the Armenian visa policy allows visa-free entry for people from a large group of countries. You do not need a visa if you are a citizen from one of the EU members states, or if you are from another country on this list.

Armenia requires a visa for some countries such as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Israel, Kosovo, Lebanon, North Macedonia, Tunisia, Turkey, etc. 

How to apply for a visa?

If you need a visa, you can apply for one in three ways, depending on your nationality. You can apply for it on arrival, online or at one of the embassies or consulates of Armenia abroad.
