The Embassy handles consular and official matters for Swedish citizens. Since 1 January 2014 the Embassy no longer accepts applications for Swedish passports or handles migration matters.  Twelve persons work at the Embassy. Ambassador Henrik Landerholm is Head of Mission. We have six diplomatic and eight locally employed staff. Two posts are funded by other Swedish Ministries or Public Authorities.  There are no Swedish consulates in Latvia.  The Embassy has close contact with other Swedish organisations in Latvia such as Business Sweden, the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Latvia, and Stockholm School of Economics in Riga.

The Administrative and Consular Section deals with the following matters:

  • Visas
  • Residence and Work permits
  • Driving License
  • Family and legal matters
  • Elections
  • Legalisation
  • Legislation, etc.

When applying for a passport one needs to make an appointment online. The passport section at the Embassy deals with a great number of applications. It is recommended that the applicant book a passport appointment at least six weeks before he/she wants to apply. The fee must be paid upon application. One may pay in cash or by bank card. The Embassy does not accept cheques.

Normal processing of a passport is about two weeks. One must collect the passport in person at the Embassy or at a Consulate.

Theft or loss of a valid passport must be reported to the police and a police report should be presented when applying for a new passport. Otherwise a passport is applied as normally. When reporting a lost passport to the police it should be noted that a report made by telephone and a registration number given  on the basis of that might not be adequate proof to the insurance company. The report can be made in person at a police station so that a report of the crime is available in writing.

NOTE:

  • All documents have to be submitted in original and the application form filled in.
  • Biometric photos and fingerprints are taken at the Embassy as part of the application process
  • The Embassy is unable to accept an incomplete application.
  • The applicant must collect the passport in person from the passport section.
