Internal Security Bureau has asked the prosecutor’s office to commence criminal prosecution of an official of Office of Citizenship and Migration Affairs for organizing a fictive marriage.

In August 2017, Internal Security Bureau detained three people who worked in an organized group and created conditions, including fictive marriages, to provide foreigners with a legal way to acquire residence permits in Latvia.

Each member of the criminal group had a specific role – one person acted as ‘wife’, another person organized fictive marriage, and the third person, who was an official of OCMA, performed the necessary actions to provide foreigners with a legal way to stay in Latvia.

Marriage is one of the legal ways a non-resident can acquire a residence permit in Latvia. The pay for ‘marriage services’ reached several thousand euros, according to ISB.
