Azerbaijan removes HIV question from visa application form
The Azerbaijan authorities made the decision to alter the current e-visa system on April 23 following criticism from European football’s governing body, UEFA, which said the HIV question on the application from was discriminatory.
The Azerbaijani capital Baku will host the final of the Europa League in May, and a number of matches in the European Championship, Euro 2020, next summer.
With the exception of citizens from a handful of former Soviet states, most visitors to Azerbaijan are required to procure visas before travelling to the country. ■
