Latvia has been a part of the European Union for over a decade already and one of the immense advantages of being a Latvian citizen is the freedom to travel and work in the European Union and live anywhere in the EU.
The possession of a Latvian passport is like having a passport to any EU country, which gives you a right to live in one of the 32 countries of EU and EFTA. Under the terms of Article 17 of the Treaty on European Union, any person holding the nationality of a member state is a citizen of the Union. EU citizenship, which supplements national citizenship without replacing it, grants citizens the right to move freely and to reside on the territory of the EU member states.
The countries where you can move freely and live with Latvian citizenship: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, and Lichtenstein.
This right is one of the greatest benefits of the European Union citizenship for individual citizens. With a Latvian passport, you will be able to take advantage of this right and live in another EU country. As most of the people who already have EU passport, you will be able to travel regularly to other EU countries for business or as tourists without checks within the Schengen area or enjoy fast-track checks at the borders.
Nowadays only EU citizens have the right to live in European Union without restriction and the easiest way to livе in EU is to claim European citizenship through descent should you have an ancestor born in Latvia. Your family members, irrespective of their citizenship, have the right to accompany or join you in an EU country where you decide to live.
Latvian citizenship can provide a number of other advantages and if you have Latvian ancestors, you might qualify for Latvian (EU) citizenship.
