An EU citizen is an alien who holds the citizenship of another member state of the European Union as well as a citizen of the Republic of Lithuania who lived in any other member state of the European Union after 2004. Citizens of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland are also attributed to EU citizens.
Family members of an EU citizen are the spouse or the registered partner, descendants under 21 years of age or supported descendants, supported parents and grandparents. In most cases, family member of an EU citizen include other persons exercising the right of free movement – a cohabiting partner, when the relationship has been maintained for at least the past 3 years, dependants, persons with whom the person shares the household, persons who need care of an EU citizen for health reasons.
If you intend to stay in Lithuania for fewer than 90 days during a period of 180 days, you only need a visa (unless visa-free travel applies to you). If you wish to stay longer, you have to acquire a national visa or a temporary residence permit. For a long-term stay, usually in 5 years, you can acquire a permit to permanently reside in Lithuania.
When an application for a visa or a residence permit is submitted, documents issued abroad must be translated into the Lithuanian language and certified by an apostille or legalised. EXCEPTIONS: Apostille legalisation of certification of documents issued in Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, Moldova, Russia, and Ukraine, as well as documents issued to Lithuania by accredited diplomatic missions or consular posts of other countries is not necessary.
When an application for a temporary residence permit is submitted, the following documents that were issued abroad must be certified by an apostille or legalised: documents confirming family ties, a marriage certificate, a document confirming the dissolution of marriage or the death of a family member, a document that confirms the conclusion of a registered partnership contract, a higher education diploma and a certificate regarding (the absence) conviction.
An apostille is legalisation of a document when the authenticity of stamps in the document and the position of the person who put their signature is certified. The apostille may be used to certify the original document as well as a notarised copy of the original. Documents with the apostille are valid in all states that adopted the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents as of the 5th of October 1961.
Legalisation is obligatory for documents that were issued in states that do not certify documents with the apostille.
