Panorama of Riga city. Latvia

Due to security reasons, Latvia will not issue humanitarian or other types of visas to those Russian citizens who avoid mobilization, nor will it change the border crossing restrictions for Russian citizens with Schengen visas introduced since September 19.

On Tuesday, September 20, Finland sent a letter to the European Commission asking for common recommendations to all Schengen countries regarding the invalidation or cancellation of visas issued to Russian citizens and the imposition of entry bans.

Citizens of the Russian Federation ordinarily resident in Estonia who go to fight against Ukrainian forces in the current conflict will not be admitted reentry into Estonia, the Ministry of the Interior announced Wednesday.
