Vaccination certificates issued by these countries will be considered valid and their bearer will be able to enter without additional restrictions. Non-digital certificates will also be accepted.
There is no compatible certificate with the European Union (EU) in these countries. Until now, the rules provided that travelers from one third country, United Kingdom, can enter Latvia, presenting an incompatible certification.

"These people, including our nationals, including our diaspora, will be able to enter Latvia with their vaccination certificates. Until now, unfortunately, travelers vaccinated with the same vaccines recognized in Europe, for example, in the United States, [but they] could not enter Latvia and confirm this fact. Although we know they were vaccinated. The amendments will allow these persons to really be considered as being vaccinated as they are," said the press secretary for the Foreign Affairs Ministry Jānis Beķeris.
