We are strongly urging in this context all road users residing in the administrative territories under the curfew and/or entering/exiting these territories to end their travel before the start of the curfew taking into account the distance to their point of destination, and not to leave their place of residence (stay) during the curfew without special permission and identity documents.

Persons who obtained special movement permits based on the service certificate and registration at the “icaze.e-gov.az” web-site are allowed to use their service and personal vehicles.
Conditions will be created for the movement of persons taken to medical institutions by ambulance cars or by their close relatives.
It is brought to the attention of the public that close relatives of deceased persons will be able to move freely in order to prepare for the funeral in accordance with religious traditions after contacting the "102" service or the "hotline" (012 590-80-20) of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and conducting appropriate proceedings on the appeal.
Legal liability measures will be taken against persons who violate the requirements of the martial law and do not comply with the legal requirements of police officers and military personnel ensuring compliance with the curfew regime.
