We had a great time during our trip from Dubai to Armenia and one of the most common questions we received from our readers is: what is the process of getting an Armenian tourist visa? We thought of sharing this post just to give you an idea how you can visit this beautiful country.
For Filipinos, great news because we get visa on arrival in Armenia. This was verified during our recent trip to the country. All we had to do was fill out the visa application form and then pay about 3000 Armenian Dram (AMD) or 7 USD for a 21-Day Single Entry visa.
