Declaring departure from Lithuania
When leaving Lithuania for a longer than 6-month period it is necessary for Lithuanian citizens, EU citizens and foreigners permanently living in Lithuania to declare the departure.
The individuals who are leaving Lithuania for longer than a 6-month period and who failed to submit a declaration before leaving, can declare it at diplomatic missions or consular posts of the Republic of Lithuania or on the Internet through e-government portal. They can identify themselves through the Internet banking systems or certify the declaration by a qualified certificate of the electronic signature. Unfortunately, EU citizens and foreigners do not have this opportunity, and have to declare change of place of residence by personally coming to municipality office or Lithuanian Embassy (consular post).
Also, before leaving Lithuania both citizens of Lithuania and the EU citizens, and foreigners, if they were regarded as permanent residents in Lithuania for the purpose of paying taxes (residents), must submit the income tax declaration of an individual departing from Lithuania for good to the State Tax Inspectorate. This declaration can be submitted electronically through electronic declaration system or having filled in the form and submitted it to the division of the State Tax Inspectorate.
It is important to mention that the permanent residence of underage children is considered to be the same as the permanent residence of their parents or guardians (caretakers). Therefore, if a minor who is citizen of Lithuania lives with you in a foreign country and his departure from Lithuania has not been declared, a separate declaration in his/her name has to be submitted. The declaration must be accompanied by a valid passport or ID card of the person applying for the application and for the minor. If an underage citizen of Lithuania stays in Lithuania, you will need to provide a written explanation of where the child lives and who takes care for him.
