So far the officials have not launched administrative procedures but offered people to register on the system right away, and the people completed their registration. Ruskulis reminded that a fine of up to EUR 2,000 can be imposed for failure to meet the epidemiological requirements.

He also reminded that the Home Guard has been attracted to help patrol the roads.

Information from registration is sent to the police, and the police carries out further inspections.

Completion of the contact information form is mandatory for all travelers, and it must be completed no earlier than 48 hours before crossing the Latvian border.
