Created: 2015.03.17 / Updated: 2015.03.17 15:49

A Residence Permit of the Republic of Lithuania (hereinafter – Residence Permit) entitles an alien to reside in the Republic of Lithuania, to choose a place of residence in the Republic of Lithuania and to change it, to leave and re-enter the Republic of Lithuania during the term of validity of the residence permit.

The following residence permits may be issued to aliens:

  • Temporary Residence Permit;
  • Permanent Residence Permit.

Temporary Residence Permit is usually issued when an alien is issued a residence permit for the first time, except in the situations stipulated in the Law on the Legal Status of Aliens (hereinafter – the Law).
An alien applying for a residence permit for the first time must submit an application for a residence permit to a diplomatic mission or a consular institution of the Republic of Lithuania abroad. This procedure also applies in those cases when an alien’s residence permit expires.

Please visit the website of the Migration Department of the Republic of Lithuania for the information on the grounds of application and documents needed to be submitted (under the column "Residence").
