Work

You can come to Lithuania to work. If you are planning to stay in Lithuania no longer than for a year, you can obtain a national visa. If you are planning to stay longer, you should choose a temporary residence permit (usually issued for two years, in case of highly-qualified employees – 3 years and later can usually be renewed). While your application for a temporary residence permit is processed, you can get a national visa.

If you are abroad, submit your application for a temporary residence permit or a national visa to the Lithuanian Embassy, and if you are staying in Lithuania, submit your application for a temporary residence permit to the migration service, according to the territory of your intended place of residence, while your application for a national visa may be submitted to the Migration Division of the Migration Board of Vilnius, Kaunas or Klaipėda, or the Migration Department.

If you have a work permit, a resolution that the work, which requires your high professional qualifications, meets the demands of the work market of the Republic of Lithuania, or resolution regarding compliance with the needs of the work market, then your employer should apply to the territorial Labour Exchange regarding the issue of these documents.

You must leave Lithuania upon termination of your employment.
