From 9 March 2020, an alien who applies for a temporary residence permit or its replacement may submit a document on his / her proper residential premises (when this document is required) at his / her choice:

  • when filling in the application in the Lithuanian Migration Information System (hereinafter referred to as "the LMIS");
  • upon arrival to the Migration Department at the scheduled time of the visit to provide documents and biometric data;
  • when withdrawing the temporary residence permit.

If an alien intends to present a document on his / her residential premises when withdrawing the temporary residence permit, it is possible to select the entry "Consent of the owner or co-owner of the residential premises and / or his / her authorized person shall be presented upon the arrival to the institution providing migration services" in the section "Document on proper residential premises in the Republic of Lithuania" of the application for the issue or replacement of a temporary residence permit in the LMIS.

The Migration Department notifies that a new option will be introduced in the aforementioned section (additional information will be provided to the customers) soon and applicants shall be immediately able to select "You will provide a document of proper residential premises when you withdraw your temporary residence permit".

The Migration Department also points out that for an alien who has declared his / her residence in the Republic of Lithuania and has applied for the issue of replacement of a temporary residence permit on employment basis, the temporary residence permit issued may be withdrawn by the employer who employs or undertakes to employ the alien, host company or Lithuanian institution of science and studies. From now, such the alien shall not have to attach to his / her application for the issue or replacement of a temporary residence permit a free-form application for the serving the temporary residence permit issued to his / her employer, host company or Lithuanian institution of science and studies, as the applications in the LMIS already include the option to indicate that the alien wishes to have his / her temporary residence permit withdrawn by the employer, host company or the Lithuanian institution of science and studies with which he / she has entered into an employment contract.
