Latvia’s “white” country list remains unchanged from last week

The Center for Disease Prevention and Control (SPKC) updated its statistics October 30, determining that in future self-isolation will be required when entering Latvia from countries with a 14-day cumulative COVID-19 incidence rate per 100,000 of population above 121.7. 

Consequently it is now possible to enter Latvia from countries with a lower infection rate than Latvia without the need for 10 days of self-isolation. The European countries that qualify for this “white list” are still Greece, Norway, Estonia and Finland, jjust like last week.

Other non-European countries on the “white list” include Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Rwanda, Uruguay, Thailand, and Singapore.

The list and requirements of self-isolation come into force on October 31 at 00:00. Prohibition of passenger transportation comes into force on the third day after the list is published i.e. November 2.

SPKC specialists recommend that you carefully consider the need to go abroad, assess the risks and do not expose yourself and others to the risk of infection.

As COVID-19 rates of infection are still increasing across much of Europe, nearly all European countries are now on the “red list” of countries to which a visit is strongly advised against. All red list countries require ten days of self-isolation.

International passenger transport is allowed only to European countries where the cumulative incidence rate does not exceed twice the EU average. Nine countries are banned for passenger carriers.

The full list of countries is  available at the SPKC website  , in English, Latvian and Russian, along with advice on how to follow the self-isolation rules and the conditions applying to all persons, be they Latvian nationals or other nationalities.

We have also attached the list in PDF format to this story for your convenience.
