Cobalt Latvia has advised two natural persons in an administrative appeal of a decision of Latvia's Office of Citizenship and Migration Affairs denying them residence permits due to non-compliance with the provisions of the Immigration Law.

According to Cobalt, "the situations of both ... clients were characterized as unusual cases which the legislator had not foreseen when adopting the relevant regulation, as a result of which the OCMA was obliged to make proportionality considerations and apply consequences that would be adequate, proportionate, and fair."

Ultimately, Cobalt reports, the head of the OCMA revoked both unfavorable decisions and the two applicants were granted permanent residence permits.

Cobalt's team consisted of Associate Marija Berdova and Assistant Lawyer Alina Ustinova.
