BAKU, Dec. 14 (Xinhua) -- Azerbaijan launched a mobile application on Friday, giving foreigners better access to online registration services, according to the country's State Migration Service.

Introducing the application, the State Migration Service Chairman Vusal Huseynov said it enables foreign citizens and stateless persons to register their arrival with the migration authorities, apply for temporary and permanent residence permits, check their application status, and make online payments.

He said the app provides direct connection to call centers of the migration authorities. "The mobile application also features information on Azerbaijan's history, culture, music as well as tourist attractions."

"Available in Azerbaijani, English and Russian languages, the software can now be downloaded on Android devices. An iOS version of the application will soon be made available," Huseynov added.

In 2016, Azerbaijan introduced "ASAN Visa" system that allows applicants to get electronic visas within three days. The Azerbaijani e-visa permits visits for up to 30 days and is valid for a 3 months' period.
