Additional costs related to approval of an invitation for requesting a visa

During CSIT Congress there was  a presentation delivered by Consular and Diplomatic Facilities Directorate representative Ambassador‐Director General Mr. Mihails Popkovs that there are additional costs associated with requesting visas.

We would like to inform you to take into account these additional expenses related to approval of an invitation for requesting a visa.

The additional costs are calculated according to the number of people included in the invitation.

As it is only possible to include 10 people in one request, the cost will depend on the number of people in the delegation.

This is just an example that will give you better idea how a cost is calculated.

Example: 25 people in the delegation
Fee for request submission: 7.11 x 3 = EUR 21,33
Additional fee for every person in the request: 2.85 x 25 = EUR 71,25

Total non-refundable fee: 21.33 + 71.25 = EUR 92.58

IMPORTANT: This amount is non-refundable and should be paid to LTSA before preparation of the invitation for requesting a visa has started.

additionally – for every person, whose age is more than six years included in the request for invitation 2.85
additionally – for every child under the age of 6 included in the request for invitation 1.42
