Citizens of some countries are required to hold a valid visa to enter Armenia. The process to obtain one is quick and simple and can be done online.

You may check whether or not you are required to hold a visa to travel to Armenia here.

If you are required to obtain a visa, you may apply for an E-visa here. You may also obtain a visa upon arrival at the airport in Yerevan, however we strongly recommend that you take care of it beforehand to avoid any delays.


There will be shuttles to bring participants to/from the Yerevan Airport on arrival and departure days. Please forward us your flight information once you have it. If you are arriving/leaving on days other than July 8 and 28, alternate arrangements will be made.
