For the kind attention of our Latvia Visa Application Centre customers in the UAE
Owing to the ongoing global COVID-19 developments, our Latvia Visa Application Centres in UAE will not be accepting visa applications for processing until further notice. Our Helpline Services will also remain suspended during this time.
The Government of the Republic of Latvia has declared a State of Emergency throughout the country from 13 March 2020 to 14 April 2020 to restrict the spread of COVID-19. While the State of Emergency is in effect an external border with Russia and Belarus will be closed for foreign nationals to enter Latvia from 17 March 2020 until 14 April 2020. All international flights, busses, ferries and trains are suspended from 17 March 2020 until 14 April 2020, therefore visa issuance for travellers to Latvia is suspended for the period of declared State of Emergency.
Consulates and embassies of the Republic of Latvia will continue to accept visa applications through external service providers where it is possible and where ESP visa centres are still operational, but only for planned travels to the Republic of Latvia after 14 April 2020
As of 17 March 2020 until 14 April 2020 international transit of passengers through airports and ports, by bus and rail to/from Latvia will be suspended.
