Take note – story published 2 years ago

On Tuesday, April 13, Latvian government extended the deadline until which third-country arrivals must carry out a mandatory Covid-19 test on arrival in Latvia, until June 15.

Since March 12, a person has to perform an additional Covid-19 test at the nearest possible testing point when entering Latvia from countries outside the European Union, European Economic Area, the Swiss Confederation and the United Kingdom. 

If this is not done, the person must immediately go into self-isolation at a tourist accommodation site from the list on Latvian Investment and Development Agency website. The person must stay there until a test is carried out.

Arrivals who test positive for Covid-19 on arrival will be subject to a ten-day self-isolation in a tourism accommodation location available on LIAA website. Both the test and hotel stay will be paid for by the traveler. 

Arrivals who test negative on arrival will still be subject to 10-day self-isolation but may do so at their place of residence.
