Promotions in Latvia: rules

In Latvia, prize promotions are subject to a number of requirements which vary depending on the rules of participation and the prize pool. Prize promotions can be held only by locally-registered companies which will have to deal with the red tape required for the competition, as well as the handling of the participants’ personal data.

Promotions involving an obligation to buy require a special licence which takes between 15 and 60 days to obtain, depending on the amount of prize pool at stake.
