The move follows a request made by UEFA on behalf of fans who will travel to the UEFA Europa League final, ONAreports citing UEFA. 

UEFA today welcomed the decision by the authorities of the Republic of Azerbaijan to amend the current e-visa system (www.evisa.gov.az), abolishing the requirement on HIV/hepatitis confirmation. The move follows a request made by UEFA on behalf of fans who will travel to the UEFA Europa League final, to be held in Baku on 29 May.

UEFA felt that such a question was of a discriminatory nature and should not prevent football fans from attending the 2019 UEFA Europa League Final or UEFA EURO 2020 matches in Azerbaijan.
