Permit takes time for Latvian (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

lett

Here is my best explanation:

'latvian' is the definition.

'permit takes time' is the subsidiary indication.

'permit' becomes 'let' ('let' can be a synonym of 'permit').

'takes' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'time' becomes 't'.

'let'+'t'='lett'

'for' is the link.

(Other definitions for lett that I've seen before include "Balt", "Native of Latvia", "Baltic citizen", "northerner", "native" and "East European".)
