Can you drink the tap water in Azerbaijan?
The US Center for Disease Control's travel advisory recommends avoiding tap water and drinking bottled or disinfected water in Azerbaijan (source). Like all countries though, water accessibility, sanitation, and treatment vary widely from location to location, so we encourage looking for specific city information.
What do people in Azerbaijan think about the tap water?
Tap water is generally safe to drink in most of the region, though in Baku and the lowland areas of Azerbaijan, you’re better off with bottled purified water, which is easily available. If you aren’t sure of your tap water’s quality, boil tap water for 10 minutes, use water purification tablets, or use a filter.
Always take extra precautions, the water may be safe to drink when it leaves the sewage treatment plant but it may pick up pollutants during its way to your tap. We advise that you ask locals or hotel staff about the water quality. Also, note that different cities have different water mineral contents.
