We sent our blogger friend, Lady and Her Sweet Escapes, to Yerevan in Armenia together with a group of journalists and people from media. This is a special familiarization trip to help promote Armenia and what the country has to offer.
Based on updates we get from Lady, there’s plenty of attractions that you see in this country. What’s great is that you can just file for a few days off from work. 3-4 days would be a good time to travel to various spots in Armenia.

Armenia Visa Processing: Visa on Arrival for Filipinos
Good news to Filipinos as the visa processing in Armenia is easy. You only need to present your passport and pay a fee of 3000 Armenian Dram (AMD) (or 7 USD). No other documents needed except for your passport.

You must pay in Armenian Dram, so bring USD and have it exchanged to AMD before you line up at the visa counter.
For other nationalities, it’s best to contact the embassy of Armenia in UAE for more details. You can visit their website here – http://uae.mfa.am/en/
