Advice

πŸ›‘οΈ Travel safety

Do not travel

You can enter Armenia with a negative COVID-19 (PCR) test result taken no more than three days before your arrival. If you arrive without a test result, you'll be required to take a test at the airport and isolate until the results are available. Social distancing measures remain in place and you must wear a mask at all times when in public places, including on public and private transport. The Armenian Government has abolished the state of emergency/martial law which was declared in 2020 following the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. We advise not to travel within 5kms of Armenia's border with Azerbaijan due to the risk of armed conflict. We continue to advise: Do not travel to Armenia due toΒ the health risks from the COVID-19 pandemic and the significant disruptions to global travel.
