From 1 April 2022, the requirement to present an interoperable vaccination or recovery certificate or a negative COVID-19 test certificate for entry into Latvia has been revoked. Hence, this requirement will only apply to travellers from high-risk countries.

Countries with a particularly high risk are those where epidemiological situations have been identified, posing a serious threat to public health. At present Latvia has not assigned any country to that category. Follow updates on the website of the Centre for Disease control and Prevention at:  

At the same time, when entering from high-risk countries, the requirement for a certificate or negative test certificate will not apply to:

  • Children under the age of 12;
  • Employees of the transport and passenger transport service provider;
  • Seafarers who need to get to or from their place of work on board;
  • Aircraft passengers who cross the territory of Latvia in transit without leaving the controlled area of ​​the airport and staying there for no longer than 24 hours if they can present confirmation of their transit flight;
  • Ukrainian citizens and their family members leaving Ukraine due to Russia’s war in Ukraine.More detailed information for travelers to Latvia available here.  

We encourage travellers to check the epidemiological safety requirements in the countries of destination and transit before the flight, clarifying the travel conditions and current requirements with the particular carrier.
