Visa inquiries for Azerbaijan fall within the competence of the Embassy of Azerbaijan in Berne, as it is about the law and entry regulation of the Republic of Azerbaijan. Therefore no responsibility can be taken for the following given information:

To enter Azerbaijan a Swiss person needs in general a valid Swiss passport (validity must be at least 3 months beyond the planned stay in Azerbaijan) and a valid electronic visa, which can be applied for on the official electronic visa portal.

Attention: A Swiss identity card is not sufficient for an entry into Azerbaijan! If one stays longer than 15 days she/he should as well register with the State Migration Service of Azerbaijan.
