A person (diaspora representative) who has returned or resettled, or is planning to return or resettled, from his/her home country to Latvia after a prolonged absence and is a Latvian citizen, Latvian non-citizen or a person who has been granted the status of a repatriate, is considered a remigrant under the programme, or a person who is entitled to acquire Latvian citizenship by registration procedure within the meaning of the Citizenship Law, as well as family members of the said person (child, grandchild, parent, grandparent or spouse), if they are returning or moving from their country of residence to permanent residence in Latvia together with the said person.

"Knowledge of the Latvian language is not only an essential prerequisite for any Latvian citizen to successfully integrate into society, but it is also a unifying and cohesive foundation for Latvian society. Communicating in the same language does not guarantee unity alone, but a common language helps to build a common world view and information space, which is particularly necessary and important to defend now, for decision-making and mutual participation in a democratic society," explains Zaiga Pūce, Director of the SIF Secretariat.
