In accordance with the measures implemented at the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan in order to prevent a further spread of COVID-19, only holders of certificates including a QR code and proving vaccination or immunity against this disease or exemption due to contraindications to COVID-19 vaccines may visit the Embassy of the Republic of Latvia in Baku, including its Consular and Visa Section, as of 1 September 2021.
