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 from the downloads section
- 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.
The necessary documents can be in either Lithuanian or English. However, please note that only the Latin alphabet is applicable for filling out the application form.
Do I need a Visa?
To apply for a visa, you must fill out the application form online using Latin characters. Click here to access the application form.
Once the application form is completed, you need to print it and sign it in section 37 and the bottom part of the 4th page. If the application is for a minor child, one of the parents must sign the child’s form.
Please provide a colored photograph with a light background, measuring 35 x 45 mm. The photo should have been taken within the last 6 months prior to submitting the documents. The face should occupy 70-80% of the photo. Glue the photo onto the application form. For more information on photo specifications, click here.
Passport and copy of personal data pages (duplicate)
Your passport (travel document) must be valid for at least 3 months beyond the expiry date of the visa. The passport should have been issued within the past ten years. There should be a minimum of 2 blank visa pages available.
UK Residence permit – Original and Copy
Your UK Residence permit, whether endorsed in your passport or issued as a Biometrics card, must be valid for at least 90 days beyond the return date of your trip to the Schengen Area. Please note that a C-type visitor visa is not acceptable.
Travel Medical Insurance
Travel Medical Insurance is a crucial requirement for individuals planning to visit the Schengen States. This insurance must provide comprehensive coverage for the entire duration of the intended stay, ensuring that any unforeseen medical expenses, repatriation needs, urgent medical attention, or emergency hospital treatments are adequately addressed. It is essential that the minimum coverage amount is set at 30,000 EUR.
In the event that a bank offers coverage while traveling abroad, it is necessary to provide a recent letter from the bank confirming that the aforementioned conditions are met.
It is important to note that the E111-form or its successor, the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), does not suffice as adequate travel insurance. These cards do not provide the comprehensive coverage required for a safe and worry-free trip.
For applicants seeking a multi-entry visa, it is acceptable to submit valid and sufficient travel medical insurance that covers the entire duration of their initial visit.
Proof of Employment
For general employment, we require a recent (not older than one month), official, and signed original letter from your employer. This letter should be on company letterhead and include the name, position of the signatory, and date of issue. Additionally, it should provide the employer’s address, recent telephone number, and registration number in the United Kingdom. Alternatively, you may submit payslips for the last three months. Please note that contracts of employment will not be accepted.
If you are self-employed, we require a recent original letter from your accountant, banker, or solicitor. This letter should be on official letterhead and include the name, date of issue, address, recent telephone number, and position of the signatory. It should also include the registration number in the United Kingdom and clearly state your self-employment or business ownership in the country. Additionally, a letter from the tax authorities is required.
For students, we require a recent (not older than one month), official, and signed original letter from your United Kingdom school, college, or university. This letter should state the date of issue, your name, the type of studies you are pursuing, the number of lessons (hours) per week, and your attendance record.
If you are currently unemployed, please provide a social benefit entitlement letter.
Please provide your last three months’ original and copy of your current account UK bank statement. The statement should be in your name and address, showing details and a balance that proves you have sufficient means of subsistence for the duration of your intended stay and for your return to the United Kingdom or your country of origin. The balance should amount to a minimum of €40 (approximately GBP 34) per day. Alternatively, you may provide traveller’s cheques showing the same information.

– If a minor child is accompanied by someone other than their parents or guardians, an original and a copy of a notarized consent signed by both parents or guardians must be included.
