If you live outside of Riga and have found a working place that is located more than 15 km away from your declared place of residence (the distance can be calculated, e.g. here: http://balticmaps.eu ), the State Employment Agency can provide you with financial support to cover commuting expenses during the first four months of employment.
If you prefer to stay close to your working place the State Employment Agency can provide you with financial support to cover expenses for your dormitory or other rented premises during the first four months of employment.
To receive this allowance, apply to the State Employment Agency within your first 10 working days stating that you would like to receive financial support for regional mobility.
For more detailed information about regional mobility, e.g., the amount of the allowance and the preconditions for eligibility , please consult your agent or consultant at the State Employment Agency.
