IOM Lithuania Migration Information Centre

In 2015, the International Organization for Migration (IOM Lithuania), in collaboration with the Government of the Republic of Lithuania, established the Migration Information Center "I Choose Lithuania" in Vilnius. Over the course of eight years, the project has grown into the most well-known initiative in the country for returning Lithuanians. During this time, 65 thousand individual consultations were provided, and the number of website visitors has grown to 4 million.

Starting from 2024, the consultations for returning Lithuanians have been taken over by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Lithuania. With the conclusion of the "I Choose Lithuania" project and the notable surge in inquiries from foreigners, the necessity of establishing a physical information center became apparent.

In the autumn of 2023, the MiCenter opened its doors – a migration information center established by IOM Lithuania, aimed at foreigners living in the country.

What consultations are provided at MiCenter?

All services are free of charge and provided in Lithuania to third-country nationals holding residence permits, aiming to improve the lives of foreigners in Lithuania, considering both their practical and emotional needs as migrants.
