Consequently it is now possible to enter Latvia from countries with a lower infection rate than Latvia without the need for 10 days of self-isolation. The European countries that qualify for this "white list" are Greece, Norway, Estonia and Finland.

Cyprus is no longer on the white list, the only change from last week's list.

Other non-European countries on the "white list" include Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand.

The list and requirements of self-isolation come into force on October 24 at 00:00 Prohibition of passenger transportation comes into force on the third day after the list is published i.e. October 26.

SPKC specialists recommend that you carefully consider the need to go abroad and assess the risks to your own and your relatives' health, without exposing them to the risk of infection.

As COVID-19 rates of infection are still increasing across much of Europe, nearly all European countries are now on the "red list" of countries to which a visit is strongly advised against. All red list countries require ten days of self-isolation.

International passenger transport is allowed only to European countries where the cumulative incidence rate does not exceed twice the EU average.

The full list of countries is available at the SPKC website, in English, Latvian and Russian, along with advice on how to follow the self-isolation rules and the conditions applying to all persons, be they Latvian nationals or other nationalities.

We have also attached the list in PDF format to this story for your convenience.
