Information for travellers to Latvia on provisions to prevent the spread of COVID-19

17.06.2020. 15:57

Since 3 June 2020, citizens of the European Union, the European Economic Area, and the Swiss Confederation, as well as people with permanent residence status in those countries, when travelling from their home countries to Latvia no longer face a 14-day self-isolation period, so long as in the European countries from which they travelled have a 14-day cumulative number of COVID-19 cases which does not exceed 15 individuals per 100,000 (or if they have been in Lithuania or Estonia during the 14 days immediately prior to entering Latvia).

  • Citizens and permanent residents of Latvia who have visited only Lithuania, or Estonia during the last 14 days before coming to Latvia do not need to self-isolate; and
  • Foreign nationals who have visited only Lithuania or Estonia during the last 14 days also do not need to self-isolate when they travel to Latvia.

All travellers, including citizens and permanent residents of Latvia, who have arrived from foreign countries in which the 14-day cumulative number of COVID-19 cases exceeds 15 individuals per 100,000, including in the context of repatriation to Latvia, must go into a 14-day period of self-isolation.
