Armenia Travel Restrictions 

Armenia Travel Restrictions Coronavirus Lockdown

Lockdown 2020.03.17

On March 16, 2020, the Armenian government announced a state of emergency that was then extended several times until August 12, 2020. The following restrictions will apply to international travels:

1. Entry Ban on Foreigners

Foreign nationals are not allowed to enter Armenia, with the exceptions outlined below.

2. Lawful Residents Allowed

The governmental decree makes an exception for "persons entitled to reside in the Republic of Armenia on legal grounds." This exception should apply to all holders of Armenian residence permits (temporary and permanent residence cards, special passports) as well as foreigners with refugee status in Armenia.

3. Family Members of Armenian Citizens Allowed

The governmental decree makes an exception for "family members" of Armenian citizens. While the term "family member" is not defined presumably it covers the spouse, the parents and the sons and daughters of an Armenian citizen.

4. Diplomatic Staff and Other Exceptions

Entry to Armenia is allowed to representatives of diplomatic and consular offices, international organizations and their family members, members of official delegations, airplane crew members, Russian border guard and military personnel and their family members. Other exemptions justified by social or economic reasons may be granted by the head of the Border Guard Service on a case-by-case basis, with the consent of deputy PM Tigran Avinyan who acts as the commandant.

5. Land Borders Are Closed 

Armenia's land borders with Georgia and Iran are closed for travelers.

6. Quarantine 

All persons entering Armenia shall be subject to 14-day home quarantine, irrespective of the country of origin.
