The Office of Citizenship and Migration Affairs (hereinafter referred to as the Office) has launched an information campaign "Spot the Threat of Trafficking in Human Beings!" with prepared tips that can help you avoid the threat of trafficking in human beings.

Search for jobs on safe and verified websites

If you are looking for a job, choose trusted and verified websites or job search platforms. Do not accept job offers from unknown sources or sources that look too good to be true.

  1. Check offers of "dream jobs"

To attract potential victims, recruiters often create unrealistic "dream job" offers. Study all offers carefully and be sceptical about the bonuses and rewards promised.

  1. Learn about employment law

Before taking a job in Latvia or working abroad, find out about employment rights and protections in the country where you work. This step will help avoid illegal employment and exploitation.

  1. Protect your personal belongings

Do not hand over identity documents or bank cards to people you do not know. Even if your documents have been lost or taken away, you can always turn to the State Police for help.

  1. Take a photo of your documents

Always keep copies of your personal documents, including your passport and eID card, on your phone. This can help you prove your identity when you ask for help.

  1. Inform your relatives

If you plan to move or work in another country, tell your relatives or friends about your plans, your new contacts and the address of where you will be living or staying. This will ensure accessibility if help or support is needed.

  1. Consult the labour inspectorate

If you encounter labour law violations or other illegal working conditions, consult your local labour inspectorate. Even if there is no formal employment contract, everyone has the right to protection and support.

The Office invites you to share tips with friends and family to work together for a safer environment and a fairer society.
