Due to the ongoing situation in the world and since the temporary residence permit (TRP) program in Latvia still exists, more and more clients contact our office to receive legal services.

Law office Inlatplus is ready to provide all foreigners (including citizens of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine) with services for opening companies in Latvia, registration of a residence permit and legal support.

At the moment, the most popular reasons for obtaining a residence permit through a company are two options:
