Payment information and expenses
EU, EEA/Switzerland citizens
EU, EEA and Swiss citizens do not need to register with the Office of Citizenship and Migration Affairs (OCMA), but need only a valid travel document (passport or ID card) to enter Latvia, if:
- students are admitted to an educational institution registered with the Register of Education Institutions of the Republic of Latvia;
- and the intended period of residence does not exceed one year (see: OCMA → Residence permits).
Be aware that in certain cases a residence permit can be helpful, for example, for opening a bank account. For details on how to apply for a student residence permit as an EU citizen, please see OCMA information → Registration cards for students.
Please contact the university for detailed information on the admission procedure as each university's admission procedure may vary.
