Crossing the border

Since Latvia is a member of the Schengen area, the border with other European Union countries is not monitored, thus you will not have to stop for border control. However, Latvia is still a foreign country, so you are required to have your identity documents and regular driving documents with you at all times. If you are arriving either from Russia or Belarus, remember to take care of your visa in advance and other mandatory documents for crossing the border.

Traffic features in Latvia

The road traffic regulations in Latvia are the same as in the rest of the European Union, including the speed limits. As in other countries, Latvian police has the right to pull you over for speeding and other traffic violations as well as perform routine checks.
