Travel Infomation Description

Road Conditions and Safety: The information below is provided for general reference only.

  • The number of fatalities from traffic accidents is high and continues to rise each year. Driving in Baku is dangerous.
  • Reckless driving is very common. Many drivers do not pay attention to traffic regulations, signals, lane markings, pedestrians, or other drivers. Drivers often travel at extremely high speeds, and accidents are frequent and often serious
  • Older sections of the roadway system are poorly constructed and poorly lit. Many rural roads are largely unpaved. Driving hazards, such as open manholes, debris, and potholes are common in Baku.
  • Unfinished road sections may be extremely dangerous due to lack of proper construction and hazard signage. 
  • Watch out for pedestrians. Pedestrians routinely disregard vehicles, crosswalks, signs and signals, and in general act carelessly.

Traffic Laws: Routine traffic stops are common. If you are driving, keep all required documents with you, including passport or local registration documents, driver?s license, vehicle registration documents, and proof of insurance.

Public Transportation:

  • The Baku metro system is an inexpensive option for transportation. Security cameras provide excellent coverage of all metro platforms throughout the system. There are police units at each metro station, and bag checks may be carried out at the entrance to each station.
  • Because safety and licensing standards do not match those, found in the United States, U.S. Embassy personnel are not authorized to use public buses.
  • For safety, we recommend using only marked taxis if you choose to take one.
  • Public transportation throughout the rest of the country remains overcrowded and poorly-maintained

See our road safety page for more information. 

Aviation Safety Oversight: The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has assessed the Government of Azerbaijan?s State Civil Aviation Administration as being in compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) aviation safety standards.  Further information may be found on the FAA?s safety assessment page.

Maritime Travel: Mariners planning travel to Azerbaijan should also check for U.S. maritime advisories and alerts. Information may also be posted to the U.S. Coast Guard homeport website, and the NGA broadcast warnings website (select ?broadcast warnings?).
