Covidpass will no longer be required to enter Latvia as of March 1

Take note – story published 2 years ago

Following the end of the state of emergency, the requirement for self-isolation after entry into Latvia will be abolished, and the registration system will also be suspended, the Latvian government decided on February 15.

According to the Ministry of Health, imported Covid-19 cases do not create an additional burden on public safety.

Therefore, the use of the 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.
