In all, traveling with a passport in Latvia is a less time-consuming, more enjoyable, and seamless process. You can move with more ease, less frustration, and less investment in administrative fees. Instead, you get to relax, kick back, and have the adventure of your life.
Every year, more and more people are choosing to lead a lifestyle of adventure— either by working as unshackled digital nomads or simply by prioritizing travel. This lifestyle is best without bureaucratic hassles and visa applications— and you can get it if you have a Latvian passport.
With it, you can get the digital nomad experience. You can stay up to half a year (in one year) in some countries— like Canada. And you can remain 30 days to 3 months (in half a year or a year) in most other countries with no extra charges or bureaucratic bothers.
Especially after Covid-19 travel restrictions and prohibitions, many travelers are looking to obtain a stronger passport to move more freely across borders— especially within the EU.
The global impact on Covid restrictions has been severe and no one knows yet what 2021 will bring. Will you be able to travel? With a Latvian passport, you can press fast forward on your relocation plans and move more easily throughout the EU— unlike non-EU-passport holders who will probably have to apply for prior authorization.
Having a Latvian passport cuts the red tape: it can help you adventure and even live in many nations with minimal administrative inconveniences. But what exactly are the advantages of having it? And what do you need to get it?
The Latvian passport is one of the strongest ones in the world, tied in 5th place with nations such as Canada and Greece (data obtained before the pandemic). What this means:
Visa-free travel: with this passport, you’re allowed to travel visa-free (no sharing too much information, no fees, no drawn-out forms) to 93 countries, including the entire EU and Schengen area.
Visa-on-arrival: the Latvian passport allows you to only do visa-on-arrival in 34 countries. This is an easy process: at the immigration desk at the airport the border, you get a stamp or attachment on your passport. You don’t need to fill any paperwork beforehand: it’s faster, easier, and much less frustrating than obtaining a regular visa.
Easy, prolonged stay: as a Latvian passport holder, you can stay in many countries (eg., New Zealand and Brazil) as long as 3 months with no hassles. In other countries, such as Canada, you can simply stay up to 6 months.
Uncomplicated access to the Schengen area.
In a world where visa barriers and administrative processes rule, having such a powerful passport makes everything easier.
The requirements to restore Latvian citizenship and obtain a passport of Latvia are straightforward. You need to be able to prove descent— that at least one of your ancestors was a Latvian citizen. There is no generation barrier.
But there’s a catch. To get Latvian dual citizenship, your Latvian ancestor must be someone who left the country during the period of occupation (officially, between 1940 and 1990).
The restoration process involves finding the documents that prove descent, filling out number of forms, and presenting them in the legally required way.
