UK/EEA nationals have the right to live and work in Latvia without a permit. However, a full ten-year UK/EU passport is essential. EU/EEA citizens will require a residence permit for stays of over three months. Residence permits are usually issued for a fixed period of time, depending on the purpose of the applicant’s stay. If you are planning to stay in Latvia for a long period of time or intend to work or study there, you should check with the Embassy regarding visa requirements.
