Turkey recognized the independence of the Republic of Latvia in 1925 and did not recognize the occupation and subsequent annexation of it by the former USSR. Following the disintegration of the former USSR and declaration of indepence of Latvia of March 4, 1990, diplomatic relations between Turkey and Latvia have been re-established with a joint declaration in Riga on 3 September 1991. 

The Embassy of the Republic of Turkey in Riga first opened on 29 September 2005 at its temporary premises on Blaumana iela, 5a and moved into its current premises in 2008.

The Embassy in offers a wide range of consular services to Turkish as well as Estonian citizens. The list of the consular transactions consists of 5 main categories:

  • Birth: certification/registration of natural children
  • Marriage Registration
  • Passports/Travel documents
  • Notary Public
  • Citizenship

For birth certificate procedures, an application from either parent will be accepted. If one of the parents is a foreign national, the application must be completed by the Turkish parent. According to the relevant Turkish legislation, if a child is born abroad, notification must be made to the Embassy/Consulate General for the area in which the child was born, no later than 60 days after the birth.

Latvian citizens are exempted from the requirement of an entry visa to Turkey for their touristic visits, provided that the duration of their stay is not longer than 90 days within a period of 180 days. Visits for special purposes such as long term residence, education, scientific research, montage-maintenance-repair work and study are subject to a "special type of visa" issued by the Turkish diplomatic missions abroad, upon receiving the approval of relevant Turkish authorities.

In case Turkish citizens lose their passports, they can apply at the nearest Turkish embassy in the area for a temporary travel document which allows return back to Turkey. This travel document can be arranged in the same day and is valid up to 1 month.

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.
