VPN Gateway pricing

Azure VPN Gateway enables you to establish secure, cross-premises connectivity between your virtual network within Azure and on-premises IT infrastructure.

VPN Gateways

Setting up a virtual network is free of charge. However, we do charge for the VPN gateway that connects to on-premises and other virtual networks in Azure. This charge is based on the amount of time that the gateway is provisioned and available.

  • Yes. Data transfers between two virtual networks are charged at the Inter-virtual network rates noted above. Other data transfers over the VPN connections to your on-premises sites or the Internet in general are charged separately at the regular data transfer rate.

  • A sub-region is the lowest level geo-location that you may select to deploy your applications and associated data. For data transfers (except CDN), the following regions correspond to Zone 1, Zone 2 and Zone 3:
