In order to avoid unpleasant incidents during travel and not expose itself to risk, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs recommends that the information regarding the countries or individual territories thereof be consulted, as well as the recommended precautions prior to and during the journey.
Available on the Ministry's websitelist of country informationin which, when selecting the country of destination, it is possible to familiarise itself with the recommendations and alerts for travellers.
Everyone must take a valid passport (or identity card) when crossing the national border (EID card) if you are travelling within the Schengen area). Before travelling, contact the embassy of the foreign country concerned to find out what the passport should be for when entering the country.
For more information on receipt of a personal identification document, video instruction on how to apply for the issue of a document electronically, and on action if the document is lost, see sectionPersonal identification document.
Before travelling, it should be made clear whether a visa is required when travelling to the country selected (taking into account the length of accommodation and the purpose of the journey). The Ministry of Foreign Affairs website contains a list of countries to which you can gowithout a visaor, on receipt of an electronic entry permit prior to the journey. If you still need a visa, contact the national representative office to find out the requirements, process and costs of the application. Available on the website of the Ministry of Foreign AffairsComposition and contact details of the foreign diplomatic corps(in English), which you can use to contact the national representative and to find out the information you are interested in.
If you are travelling with a child - a child (travelling to the countries of the Schengen area) must be accompanied by a valid travel document - passport or Latvian citizen's identity card (eID card).
If a child is travelling alone (it is allowed to reach the age of compulsory education - 5 years), it is best to design a notarially approved mandate. It is compulsory to leave the Schengen area, but it is also safer to travel with it (although not compulsory).
It should be verified that no additional requirements, such as the presentation of other documents relating to child travel, have been established in the country to which or through which the child will travel, as well as the company providing passenger services. It is also recommended to carry out a translation of the document concerned into the language of the country of destination and to familiarise itself with the rules of internal procedures of the passenger carrier chosen.
In order to protect yourself, your property and health when travelling, you must think about insurance. Travel insurance is widely offered by many insurance companies and can be presented electronically on the websites of companies, as well as in on-the-spot branches, during the journey. Travellers are advised to have insurance which also covers repatriation costs to their home country, in the event of the death of a person or serious illness.
When travelling, it is certainly worth weighing all health risks in the event of sudden illness, injury, etc. In such situations, the European Health Insurance Card, or EHIC, is very useful, which demonstrates your right to receive the necessary or emergency healthcare to the same extent as it is provided to the people of the country concerned.
The EHIC shall be a plastic card attesting that the person is a Member State of the European Union, a Member State of the European Economic Area (Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein) or a Swiss Confederation and is socially insured in his or her country.
An EHIC card can be applied for electronically:
The EHIC shall be issued free of charge and shall be valid for three years. You may receive a new card free of charge after the expiry date of the card (or within one month before the existing EHIC expires).
Vaccination is an essential guarantor of health. Full available on the website of the vaccination servicealphabetical list of countrieswhich allows you to find out about the necessary vaccines in the country and region when selecting the country of destination.
