Parking place for the vehicles of the Mission

Requests in the form of a Verbal Note concerning the Mission’s intention to create a parking place outside the Mission should be forwarded to the Director of Diplomatic Facilities Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which will inform the municipal authorities. The municipal authorities have full autonomy as regards their policy on reserved parking lots. For new embassies the Municipality of Riga reserves 2 parking lots on the public road outside the main office (the Chancery) of a Mission. These parking lots may be used only by vehicles belonging to the Mission and members of the Mission, and not by visitors.

Additional information is be provided by the Director of Diplomatic Facilities Department, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, tel+371 6701 6130.

Parking near the Ministry

Vehicles with CD, CC, C or CH number plates have the right to temporary parking in front of the central entrance of the Ministry.

Parking and Penalties for Parking Offences

Parking zones are indicated by special P-zone signs. Pay & Park ticket machines are in operation in many parts of Riga. For the convenience of drivers, several multi-stored parking places have been opened in Riga. In these locations payment for parking is compulsory.

Vehicles with diplomatic license number plates are subject to parking laws and regulations. No exemptions from charges for parking are possible, since the charges are levied by the City Municipality for specific services rendered. Members of the Missions are therefore requested to meet their obligations voluntarily, despite their privileged status.
