Can we Cross from Vladikavkaz in Russia to Azerbaijan Overland?

Has anyone crossed from Russia to Azerbaijan overland recently? I wish to know the options for transportation? I read about the train but I wanted to know if there is some bus or shared taxis? Or Hitchhiking works there? I will be starting from Vladikavkaz in Russia and I will have less than 2 days to cross the border before my Russian visa expires.

Update: I am in Georgia according to my original plan, didn’t need to go to Azerbaijan.

    I didn’t but I think there are no trains Russia-Azerbaijan. The only crossing is the road to Quba. There are taxi and buses quite sure. Or you want to travel trough Georgia?

      My initial plan is to go from Vladikavkaz to Georgia but if I am refused entry at the border then I will have to go back to Vladikavkaz and head to the Azerbaijan border. So I will enter Azerbaijan from Russia.


    There’s straight marshrutka to Stepantsminda in Georgia. That doesn’t answer your question, but I wanted to help so bad. Sorry


    From Vladikavkaz, you only enter into Georgia. Just today I did that and in Tbilisi now. Tomorrow or Sunday I’m looking to go to Baku. There are trains and buses both.

      Do you have an Indian passport? My initial plan is to go to Georgia from Vladikavkaz, Azerbaijan is plan B in case I am not allowed to enter Georgia. I don’t need a visa for Georgia as I have a valid US visa but I have heard they often refuse entry to Indians and Pakistanis who have e-visa or are eligible for visa-free entry.

        I don’t need a visa for Georgia. That said, I do not have an Indian passport. What passport do you have? How are you looking to go to Azerbaijan if you’re refused entry into Georgia? Do you have a double or multiple entry Visa for Russia? Not sure but maybe there’s a direct border entry into Azerbaijan from Russia.

          I have a Pakistani passport. I had a Fifa Confederations Cup Fan id which allowed me multiple entries to Russia. I am in Tbilisi now. I was questioned just for 30 minutes by immigration so I would count that easy haha.
