“The System for Obtaining and Monitoring of Permits”

E-Gov Development Center subordinate to the State Agency for Public Service and Social Innovations under the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, in collaboration with the Ministry of Internal Affairs, has established “The System for Obtaining and Monitoring of Permits during the Implementation of Special Quarantine Regime”. The system is designed to obtain permits for citizens to operate and leave their homes during the implementation of a special quarantine regime in the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

Public and private organizations should obtain permission for their employees to operate during the special quarantine regime through the portal icaze.e-gov.az. Obtaining legal permissions for employees in the portal is realized by the seal authorized persons of public and private organizations. Followingly, employee information is confirmed by the system and transmitted to the relevant system of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The seal authorized person can see the current status of the permissions in the system and edit/delete them if necessary. In addition, the seal authorized person of a public or private organization can give authorization to another person to use the system in order to facilitate processes. The log in to the system is realized through “ASAN Login”. Access to the system is possible through “ASAN Imza” and “E-Signature” available in “ASAN Login”.

Citizens have the opportunity to view the status of permits obtained by the organization or institution they are working for, by accessing their personal accounts in the e-government portal www.mygov.az.

8103 SMS Permission System is used to obtain permission for citizens to leave their homes during the application of the special quarantine regime. The system has the functions of issuing a limited number of permits to each citizen per day, processing the relevant code and the serial number of the identity card, confirming or canceling applications for permits.

8103 SMS Permission System is used to obtain permission for citizens to leave their homes during the implementation of the special quarantine regime. The system has several functions of issuing a limited number of permits to each citizen per day, processing the relevant code and the serial number of the national ID card, confirming or canceling applications for permits.

Citizens can send a special code indicating the purpose of the permit from any mobile number and the serial number of the ID card to the short number 8103 via SMS. The SMS Permission System, which does not require any service fee, automatically responds to sent permission messages within 1 hour. The response SMS to the citizens' appeal indicates the period of validity of the permit, and citizens can leave the place of residence only after receiving a positive response.

8103 SMS Permission System, designed for citizens to leave their homes for necessary purposes, is assigned with 3 codes on the purpose of permits.

• Code number 1 is related to getting urgent medical necessity and receiving treatment on any schedule. The permit is issued for 3 hours within the district and the city. If the duration of the treatment procedure is extended, the period of return is determined by a certificate issued by a doctor.

• Code number 2 is for leaving the house due to the need for purchasing food and other daily necessities, as well as medicines, and using banking and postal services. Permission is issued once a day for 3 hours.

• Code number 3 is for attending the funeral of a close relative. No restrictions are determined for this permission.

In case of abuse of any code, the system sends a notification to the user regarding the rejection of the permission.

For instance, citizens of the Republic of Azerbaijan must send an SMS with the content 2 AZE 1111111 to the short number 8103 in order to obtain a permit to leave the place of residence due to the need to purchase food and other daily necessities, as well as medicines, banking, and postal services.
