Replacement of the information published in OJ C 247, 13.10.2006

According to the Immigration Law, in order to be able to enter and stay in the Republic of Latvia an alien must prove that he or she has the necessary means of subsistence.

The amount required is no less than LVL 10 per day of stay.

Where it is indicated in the electronic database of invitations, or on the form ‘Ielūgums vīzas pieprāšanai/Invitation for requesting a visa’ laid down by the Office of Citizenship and Migration Affairs, that the host will cover the expenses related to the alien’s entry and stay in Latvia, the alien does not have to submit the documents proving the availability of the necessary means of subsistence.

If necessary, the alien must show that he or she possesses financial resources sufficient to pay for the planned accommodation and/or, if travelling with a private vehicle, financial resources sufficient to buy the fuel needed for the journey.
