Last day for UK nationals in Latvia to register their presence

Take note – story published 2 years and 11 months ago

June 30 is the deadline for United Kingdom nationals in Latvia to officially register their presence or risk losing their rights and privileges.

The British embassy in Rīga provided a reminder and urged anyone who has not yet registered with the Office of Citizenship and Migration Affairs (PMLP) to do so urgently.

A recent article in The Guardian suggested that only a third had bothered to register by the end of March, with around 800 potential applications still awaited from an estimated 1,200 UK nationals in Latvia.

As a result of the UK's departure from the Union, migrants from the UK no longer enjoy the automatic right to live, work or claim benefits, pensions and healthcare.

Latvian nationals, and all other EU citizens in the UK face a similar situation on June 30, with the Latvian embassy in London urging them to register for so-called "Settled status" if they have not already done so.
