The number of consultations at the One Stop Shop reached the first 1000

Active work has begun on the creation of new branches and on personnel selection in Jelgava and Valmiera, so that the One Stop Shop services are available to citizens of third countries, recipients of international protection and their relatives on a wider scale in Vidzeme and Zemgale regions.

In the meantime, the interest in consultation and translation services provided by One Stop Shop remains at its current level. The largest increase in face-to-face consultations has been observed in the Liepāja branch so far, where in June 104 individual consultations were provided to citizens of third countries.

In June, 160 individual consultations were provided in the Riga branch. The most frequently asked questions concern obtaining or extending a residence permit, changing a driver`s license or registering a car in Latvia, as well as questions related to the documentation required for marriage registration.

In addition to other activities this month, a cooperation meeting was held with representatives of consulting, technology and outsourcing company “Accenture” on improved support for foreigners. The company already employs 200 third-country nationals in Latvia, representing 38 nationalities, and has developed a special program for introducing new employees to work at the company – an onboarding program -, which is based on social inclusion and provides a Latvian language course for the newcomers. The One Stop Shop plans to attract more new companies with similar practices in order to inform them about the activities of the One Stop Shop and the services offered to citizens of third countries, as well as to draw inspiration from the best practices of immigrant integration.

The One Stop Shop’s services are provided by the Society Integration Foundation within the framework of the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund’s project (Agreement No. PMIF/13.1./2022/1/01). The funding has been allocated by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (75%) and Latvian State budget (25%).
