To register a child as a citizen of Latvia and afterwards apply for a valid idenity document (passport and/or ID card), please contact the Embassy to arrange an appointment*

At the appointment the following documents shall be submitted:

  • Birth certificate on international form (can be requested at the local municipality, where the birth of a child has been registered);
  • Personal identification documents (passport and/or ID card) of the parent(s).

Following the submission of documents and completion of the application form, the personal identity number is granted to the child in approximately 1 week.

After the identity code is granted you can apply either for a passport and/or ID card.

Please note that the whole procedure (receipt of personal identification number and passport and/or ID card) takes at least 8 weeks, therefore plan your trips with child abroad in due time.
