The Cabinet Regulation No 360 “Epidemiological Safety Measures to Limit the Spread of Covid-19 Infection” issued on June 09, 2020 describes requirements and procedures to provide healthy and safe services. Chapter No V of the Regulation No 360 sets Restrictions on International Passenger Carriage, Tourism and Travel and concerns Air Travel. 

 


Main restrictions:

As of 10 June 2020, international passenger flights to and from countries with a low or medium risk of Covid-19 infection are allowed in accordance with the list published on the website of the Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. Low- and medium-risk countries are countries with a 14-day cumulative rate of COVID-19 cases per 100 000 population lower than twice the average of the EU/EEA and the United Kingdom. The list of countries on the website is updated once a week - on Fridays, and the restrictions take effect on the following Monday.

 

Starting from October 12, 2020 all passengers travelling to Latvia have to fill in an electronic  questionnaire and get QR code.  Electronic questionnaires are accessible from any smart device and it will be possible to complete them on a special website, www.covidpass.lv, as of 12 October.

Completion of the contact information form is mandatory for all travellers, and it must be completed no earlier than 48 hours before crossing the Latvian border. The person must indicate in the questionnaire relevant contact information including their name, surname, personal identification code, the address where they will reside  and the telephone number where they can actually be contacted, as well as countries they have visited over the past 14 days and dates of departure preceding their arrival in the territory of Latvia. For each adult, the certificate must be completed separately, for minors, the certificate is to be completed by parents or legal guardians.

After filling in the form certifying their contact information, the traveller will receive a QR code which is assigned to them personally and which also confirms that the information they submitted on the electronic questionnaire was received. In case the QR code is lost, the traveller can go back to the website and retrieve their QR code again by clicking on the “Receive QR Code” function and entering their e-mail address.

Airlines are responsible for checking QR codes (printed or on smart devices)  visually or with any QR code reader before boarding. Passengers  with no QR codes  can be denied boarding or suggested to fill the questionnaire on their smart devices.
