As reported earlier, starting March 17, flights to and from third countries will be permitted.
Arrivals who test positive for Covid-19 on arrival will be subject to a ten-day self-isolation in a hotel. Both the test and hotel stay will be paid for by the traveler. The list of hotels providing self-isolation opportunities is available on this website.
Arrivals who test negative on arrival will still be subject to 10-day self-isolation but may do so at their place of residence.
Flights to and from third countries will be permitted so that it is easier to control the epidemiological situation, the government said. Since most countries, including neighboring Lithuania and Estonia, permit those flights, some Latvian residents are believed to have used these routes to travel, making it problematic to know where they have been.
