Take note – story published 1 year ago

Since the beginning of the war, 21,981 Ukrainian civilians have been registered in Latvia so far, according to the latest information from the Ministry of Interior reported by LETA on April 19.

16,501 residence documents with the right to employment have been issued to refugees in Latvia, while accommodation through local governments was needed for 9,493 persons.

If the war continues, Latvia will have to think about Poland's practice of accommodating refugees in gyms and heated tents.

It is already necessary to consider providing aid to refugees who have been taken in so far and who will decide to stay in Latvia for more than three months. The number of such people will be known within the next two months. Ukrainian citizens who have biometric passports and do not need social assistance or assistance with accommodation may stay in Latvia for up to 90 days within one year without informing the national authorities.
