About us

Welcome to the Embassy of Sweden in Baku, Azerbaijan.

In 2013, the Swedish Government decided to upgrade the presence in Azerbaijan by opening an embassy in Baku.

A permanent Swedish presence in Azerbaijan represented by an embassy makes it easier for Swedish authorities to follow the economic and political development in the country and to aim for strengthening the bilateral relations between Azerbaijan and Sweden, concerning trade and investments.

Sweden had been represented in Azerbaijan with an honorary consulate until March 2014. The honorary consulate is now closed in connection with the opening of the embassy.

Schengen visa to Sweden (for visits up to 90 days) is issued by the Embassy of France in Baku through the CAPAGO Visa Application Center in Baku. More information can be found here.
