We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Azerbaijan. The British Embassy in Baku provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Azerbaijan.

Our work covers a range of issues including democracy, an open market-based economy and effective governance structures.

We liaise with the Azerbaijani government and Institutions on behalf of UK institutions and government departments, and support the UK’s international priorities.

You can access UK government services while in Azerbaijan.
