I am flying to my home country of Latvia this summer, haven't been there for 4 years. The last time I went the only document I needed was my US Passport. Nowadays every website I check seems to mention health insurance as a requirement to enter Latvia and some websites even mention that the border guards check in upon entry. Does anyone know if this is true or not? It hasn't been the case the last time I went there which was in 2003.
A mile of runway takes you to the world. A mile of highway takes you a mile.

I looked on Skyteam web site where they have a section about visa requirements (you choose your country of nationality and eventually country for connection). Here what it says (below) and the health insurance is needed. BUt they say you can take one at the airport on arrival before clearing immigration
