Arriving and having to get the visa can be a lengthy nightmare, especially if you have arrived behind a flight from Iran. At least one hour with people letting their mates in so movement ceases. -a traveller
To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Zvartnots International Airport.
What to Expect
- A modern and colorful international airport with one functioning main passenger terminal (Terminal 2) and a VIP terminal. Reasonably priced 24-hour shopping and dining options are available.
- The airport is very busy at night, due to the amount of incoming flights from Europe.
- A recent traveller suggests that after landing, you should pick up the Visa form and fill it out whilst waiting in the lengthy queue. Payment in AMR only. No other currencies are accepted.
- There are no exchange counters once you are airside.
- WiFi is available. See WiFi in the airport guide below.
Where to Sleep
- As of February 2017, we have no reviews from travellers who have attempted to sleep in this airport. Reviewers do report that there are plenty of comfortable chairs to lay across, and although you will be stared at for laying down or sleeping, no one will bother you. Write a Review to help future travellers!
- For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
Good to Know
- You will need AMR to purchase Visa. One reviewer suggests getting the currency first, picking up the form and complete it while you are standing in line.
- Economy class passengers can pay to enter the airport’s first class lounge. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for locations and rates.
- If you have time to kill, downtown Yerevan is only 35 minutes from the airport. Visas are reportedly easy to obtain if you want to visit the city during a long layover.
