Saeima’s Citizenship, Migration and Social Cohesion Committee has decided to ask the Cabinet of Ministers to extend the period of time within which residents are obligated to report their registered place of residence in foreign countries, as reported by Saeima’s press-service.

The committee will ask the Cabinet of Ministers to extend the period of time to three months instead of the current one month period.

Previously, European Latvians Union’s representative informed members of the Saeima about certain problems members of Latvian diaspora face when registering their place of residence abroad with Latvia’s Population Register. One problem mentioned by the representative is the short period of time given to individuals to register their place of residence with the institution. This period of time should be extended, said the union’s representative, adding that citizens of EU member states have the right to remain in other member states for a period of up to three months with the only requirement for them is having a valid passport.

Ritvars Jansons, chairman of the committee, mentioned during the meeting that the Saeima had approved amendments to the Population Register Law last year. The parliament had also authorized the Cabinet of Ministers to approve regulations needed for realization of requirements listed in the Population Register Law. All terms associated with the Population Register are detailed in Cabinet of Ministers requirements.

«Extension of the term will help resolve many problems complications that appear for people when living abroad, as well as practical matters associated with benefits in Latvia and definition of the unemployed status,» said Jansons.
