To enter Lithuania, it is necessary to apply for the appropriate visa type based on the purpose of your visit. The following categories require a visa application:
- Family members of Lithuanian or EU citizens (including EEA and Switzerland) who do not reside in their home country in accordance with EU directive 2004/38.
For family members of EU/EEA/EFTA citizens, please refer to the relevant link for the required supporting documents.
- Family members of EU/EEA/EFTA citizens holding a residence document other than the Residence Card of a Family Member of an EEA National, and traveling together with an EU/EEA/EFTA citizen.
- Family members of EU/EEA/EFTA citizens who are not traveling together with an EU/EEA/EFTA citizen.
- Other applicants.
It is important to note that proof of relation to an EEA/EU or Swiss national is required. This can be provided in the form of a marriage or birth certificate (original document to be presented). If the certificate is not in English or Lithuanian, a certified translation by a translator in the UK is necessary. Additionally, if the marriage/birth certificate is not issued in an EU/EEA Member State or the Swiss Confederation, it must be legalized. Document authentication (legalization) and Apostille certification ensure the verification of the signature and seal of a document. Traditionally, this process is performed by a Consular Officer to ensure the legal validity of documents across different countries.
If you are planning a visit to close relatives in Lithuania, you have the option to fill out the necessary documents in either Lithuanian or English.
However, please note that only the Latin alphabet is acceptable for filling out the application form. If you are unsure whether you need a visa for your visit, please continue reading for more information.
Application form: To complete the application form, please click here and fill it out online using Latin characters. Once you have filled out the form, it is important to print it and sign it in two specific sections: section 37 and the bottom part of the 4th page. If you are submitting documents for a minor child, one of the parents should sign the child’s application form.
Photograph: Please ensure that you have a recent colored photograph with a light background, measuring 35 x 45 mm. The photo should have been taken no earlier than 6 months prior to submitting your documents, and your face should occupy 70-80% of the photo.
Passport: You will need to provide your passport and a duplicate copy of the pages containing your personal data. Your passport, or travel document, should be valid for at least 3 months beyond the expiration date of your visa. It should have been issued within the past ten years and must have a minimum of 2 blank visa pages.

UK Residence Permit – Original and Copy
It is essential that your UK Residence permit, whether endorsed in your passport or issued as a Biometrics card, remains valid for at least 90 days beyond your planned return date. Please note that a C-type visitor visa will not be accepted.
Travel Medical Insurance
It is mandatory to possess Travel Medical Insurance that covers the entire duration of your intended visit. This insurance should be valid for all Schengen States and provide coverage for any potential expenses related to medical repatriation, urgent medical attention, emergency hospital treatment, or any other unforeseen medical circumstances. The minimum coverage required is 30,000 EUR.
If your bank offers coverage while you are abroad, we kindly request a recent letter from your bank confirming that the aforementioned conditions are met.
Please be aware that the E111-form or its successor, the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), does not suffice as adequate travel insurance.
For applicants seeking a multi-entry visa, it is acceptable to submit appropriate and valid travel medical insurance that covers the duration of their initial intended visit.

It is important to note that if your marriage or birth certificate is not in English or Lithuanian, you will need to provide a certified translation by a translator recognized in the UK. Additionally, if your marriage certificate was not issued in an EU/EEA Member State or the Swiss Confederation, it must be legalized. Document authentication, also known as legalisation, and Apostille certification are processes that verify the signature and seal of a document.
