Residents of Latvia traveling abroad now have an easier means of letting the Ministry of Foreign Affairs know where they are thanks to an online consular register.
The register, which can be accessed at kr.mfa.gov.lv, is voluntary. Registering one’s location allows officials to help travelers in case of emergency, according to a Ministry of Foreign Affairs press release.
The Web site became available Jan. 1.
Residents of Latvia may also register their whereabouts with Latvian embassies, consulates and consulates general, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Consular Department in Rīga.
