Free Covid testing available for all arrivals at Rīga Airport

As of December 2, all passengers at Riga airport have the possibility to carry out a state-paid Covid-19 RNA test on a voluntary basis, the airport said in a release.

Testing at the airport will be performed by E. Gulbja laboratory and will be available to all arriving passengers. The voluntary free test is available to all travelers, including those with a vaccination or recovery certificate.

Testing points for arriving passengers are available at the following locations:

  • for passengers entering from the Schengen Area – in the arrivals hall E, at the exit from the terminal;
  • for passengers entering from outside the Schengen Area – in the arrivals area C before the border control.

These points will be available for most of the day; however, when these testing points are closed, the test can be performed at E. Gulbja Laboratory branch on the 2nd floor of the airport.

According to Cabinet Regulation No. 720, passengers must go to their place of residence, stay, or tourist accommodation immediately after the test to wait for the result of the test. In the event of a positive test, one must contact their GP and self-isolate.
