The Latvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is urging travelers not to completely forget a few precautions; however, particularly when it comes to checking the validity of your and fellow travelers' travel documents, taking care of travel insurance and visas, as well as making sure your destination is a safe one.
With that in mind it is launching a new publicity campaign stressing the basics of safe travel. By June 4, eight thematic visuals and a short animated video (which you can see above) on tips for prudent travel and the potential risks of traveling will be distributed in the digital environment using the hashtag #CeļoApdomīgi (#TravelThoughtfully).
Information materials will be displayed at Riga Airport, Riga International Bus Station and passenger terminal, as well as on various social networking accounts.
