Moving to Latvia.

Moving to Latvia.

My question is quite specific to people who have already moved to Latvia.

I come from the Middle East, Kuwait to be exact.

I have visited Latvia because my girlfriend is Latvian and just fell in love with it, considered to actually move there.

My plans were originally postponed until a year or two but now due to matters out of my hand, causing my original plans to accelerate.

I want to ask you this first will the move be a hassle give to me not being from an EU country, also would i need a job at first then apply for the work visa or should i just ask my girlfriend to send me an invitation and have her sponsor me.

I am clueless been spending these few days looking everywhere, any help.

Normal way if you come from outside EU is to find a job first and then apply for work visa.

I would suggest you contact Latvian Embassy in your region. I think the closest to you is: https://www.mfa.gov.lv/en/uae

Check with them. Only they will be able to help you with most accurate and reliable information concerning your rights and obligations if you wish to move to Latvia.
