Vaccinated citizens of USA, Australia and Canada can get temporary Latvian Covid certificates

The Latvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has confirmed that people entering Latvia fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in the USA, Australia, or Canada, can receive a short-term vaccination certificate for use in Latvia.

The short-term certificate is valid only in the territory of Latvia, and is equivalent to an interoperable vaccination certificate and valid for 30 days from the day it is issued. The short-term certificate is intended for receiving services and attending events.

All persons travelling to Latvia must fill out an electronic form on the website not earlier than 48 hours before entering Latvia and provide the requested information concerning vaccination, testing, or recovery from COVID-19.

Restrictions on entry to Latvia depend on the country the person is travelling from and on whether the person has been vaccinated, or recovered from COVID-19.

For the full official English-language account of the procedures required for the issuing and use of the certificate, please see this webpage of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
