Travelers to Ireland, Portugal and the United Kingdom Friday / Article / Eng.lsm.lv

Latvia TV reported on February 24 that passenger flights to Ireland, the United Kingdom and Portugal would resume on Friday.

On February 5, the Latvian government decided to suspend passenger traffic to the United Kingdom, Portugal and Ireland. Travel to these countries will not be banned from February 26.

However, it is not clear whether the “non-essential” travel ban will remain in effect. The Latvian government is expected to make a decision on Thursday. The Ministry of Health has directed that the law be adhered to until the end of the state of emergency on April 6.

The Home Ministry referred the matter to the Transport Ministry. It was handed over to the Ministry of External Affairs. The State Department responded that it would not encourage the extension of the restrictions, but indicated that border control would not fall within its purview. It is the responsibility of the Ministry of the Interior to fill out the Ministerial Passport.

Riga International Airport spokeswoman Laura Kulakova said clear guidance was needed.

We respond to people that these restrictions will not be enforced from February 26th, but it is clear that we want a clear message that they really are. This situation, as it is now, makes it difficult for us and the airlines to plan action, ”Kulakova said.
