Lithuania

If your company is sending employees to Lithuania—Fragomen is here to help. Working closely with our Local Advisors in Lithuania, we provide the immigration strategies and support you need to get your employees on the ground as quickly as possible. 

Lithuanian law provides many solutions to help employers of foreign nationals.  Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility, and benefits for accompanying family members vary by visa classification.

Business visitors to Lithuania typically use a local version of the Schengen-C Visa, which most foreign nationals are required to obtain prior to arrival in Lithuania.  Schengen visas are generally valid for up to 90 days within a 180-day period.  

Foreign nationals must, unless otherwise exempt, obtain a work permit to take up any form of employment in Lithuania. Work permits are generally granted for the length of an assignment, up to one year initially and can be renewed. Foreign nationals who will work in Lithuania for less than 90 days can do so pursuant to their entry visa, if that visa allows work in Lithuania, while those working for 90 days or more must obtain a residence permit.  A foreign national may obtain work and residence permits in country or prior to travel.

Note that Lithuania has very long government processing times.
