BECOME AN e- or m- Resident

e-Residency (Electronic Residency) and m-Residency (Mobile Residency) is a government program, that allows entrepreneurs around the world to set up and run a location-independent business in Azerbaijan, using all the cross-border e-services of the Digital Trade Hub of Azerbaijan.

Becoming an e-/m-resident gives you a government-verified electronic identity, which you can securely use in an online environment. e-Residency and m-Residency are essentially the same, though e-residents receive a chip-enabled ID card for authentication and electronic signatures, while m-residents are issued with special Asan İmza (Mobile ID) SIM card that performs the same function.

Azerbaijan is the world's second country, after Estonia, to offer e-Residency and the first country to offer m-Residency.
