The embassy’s Consular Department is available for guidance and assistance to Danish citizens and foreign residents of Denmark.

The Embassy can provide consular assistance in serious cases such as death, illness, imprisonment in Latvia etc. The embassy in Riga represents the Baltic countries in issuing Danish passports, visas and residence permits to Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Greenland.

The Consular Department cannot help citizens who encounter financial problems during their stay in Latvia. This also applies in relation to loan of money for a ticket back to Denmark, payment of hospital stays, legal aid etc. but we are happy to provide advice and guidance.

For further information, please see the menus under Travel and Residence.
