To register a child as a citizen of Latvia and apply for the first identity document (passport and/or ID card) of the child, please book an appointment by using the ELECTRONIC APPOINTMENT SYSTEM.
At the appointment the following documents shall be presented:
- 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 presentation of required documents and completion and submission of the application form, the personal identity code is granted to the child in approximately one week.
The issuance of a passport and/or ID card is possible only after the identity code has been granted for the child.
Please note that the whole procedure (receipt of personal identification code and passport and/or ID card) takes at least 8 weeks, therefore plan your trips with child abroad accordingly.
For any questions please contact the Embassy's Consular Section.
