Roadmap for your next business location in Latvia

 

Due to instable situation in the Republic of Belarus and strong interest of Belarusian companies in relocation of business, Investment and Development Agency of Latvia (LIAA), together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) and the Office of Citizenship and Migration Affairs (OCMA), took measures to provide informative support, as well as accelerate the issuance of necessary visas and temporary residence permits (TRP) for citizens of the Republic of Belarus.

Considering the spread of COVID-19, regulations № 360 of the Cabinet of Ministers “Epidemiological Safety Measures for the Containment of the Spread of COVID-19 Infection” came into force, which determine epidemiological safety measures, including the need to observe self-isolation upon the arrival in the Republic of Latvia. Considering possible changes in the rules, we recommend contacting LIAA for the most updated information.
