Are you an expat working and living in Latvia? Or are you preparing to move soon to Riga, Jelgava or any other of the Latvian international hotspots?
Expat life in Latvia has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like Latvia's dense pine woodlands, interspersed by over 3,000 small lakes, learning how Latvian people celebrate Darba svētki, up to tasting Latvia’s favorite dishes such as pirags.
Moving to and living in Latvia requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Latvian expat life. Living abroad in Latvia raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Latvia?ʺ, ʺDo I need at least a smattering of Russian and / or Latvian in everyday life?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Riga should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Latvian municipality in Daugavpils?ʺ
Collecting all that information on working and living in Latvia is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Latvia aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Latvia. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from education and children, to local organisations & companies or restaurants and nightlife, up to food & shopping. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺWhat are the most famous sights in Riga?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.
Moreover, our expat directory for Latvia includes recommended listings of expat institutions and relocation services, e.g. special food stores or real-estate agents. As a member, you’ll also be able to share your experiences of living abroad in Latvia with your fellow expats on the InterNations Forum. We are looking forward to welcoming you with a heart-felt Sveiki from our expats living and working in Latvia.
