According to the Ministry of Health, imported Covid-19 cases do not create an additional burden on public safety.
Therefore, the use of the covidpass.lv platform will be suspended as of March 1, as in the view of the Ministry it is no longer effective. The conditions for the issuance and use of digital Covid-19 certificates of the European Union (EU) are maintained.
In order to reduce uncertainties for passengers and to avoid the complicated entry rules, countries will no longer be divided into risk groups. However, a ban on entry from particularly high-risk countries (if any, as determined by the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control, as well as the Latvian Disease Prevention and Control Center) which may pose a significant risk to public health is maintained. Currently, no such countries are identified.
