Getting there…

Flights

Flights into the Zvartnots International Airport (EVN). Among major airlines which fly directly to Yerevan are:

Ground Transportation. General Info

Getting around: The city center is very compact and walkable. It takes 20-30 min to get from one side to the other. But if you need or prefer transportation, the best way to get around the city is by taxi. They are really inexpensive and abundant. For better service you may want to download and install apps for local taxi services. There are a few apps that work for taxis in Yerevan. The two most popular are:

The standard fare is around 600 drams per 4 kilometers and around 100 drams per kilometer after (in US currency: $1.25 for every 2.5 miles and then $0.20 for every .6 mile after). If you use an app it gets a bit cheaper at a standard fare of 400 drams ($0.80) per 4 kilometers (2.5 miles). And you won’t have to negotiate any nonsense.

Visas

Majority of participants of the conference would not need visa to visit Armenia. Some who need visa can easily obtain it at the airport upon arrival. However there are a few countries, citizens of which may need to apply for the visa. Please, check out the requirements at the web site of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Armenia.
