Azerbaijan simplifies vessel registration


The number of documents required for primary state registration of vessels has been reduced in Azerbaijan, according to the decision of the country’s Cabinet of Ministers.

The relevant amendments were made to the "Rules of the State Registration of Vessels in Azerbaijan.”


In accordance with the changes, the list of required documents has been reduced from 13 to 11.

From now on, it is no longer needed to get a special permit for the activity of marine radio stations, as well as a vessel’s certificate of suitability for navigation and a notary certified copy thereof.
