Residence permits for EU citizens

A citizen of a European Union, Norway, Switzerland, Iceland and Lichtenstein (hereinafter EU citizen) may enter the Republic of Lithuania and stay here for a period not exceeding three months starting from the first day of entry into the Republic of Lithuania. If one resides for a period longer than 3 months, (s)he should apply for a document confirming the right to reside in Lithuania. Then, having declared a place of residence in Lithuania, an EU citizen acquires the right to the social guarantees of the Republic of Lithuania if these rights are not related to citizenship (for example, voting). A document confirming the right of an EU citizen to temporarily or permanently reside in Lithuania is a certification of the form established by the Minister of the Interior to confirm the right to temporarily or permanently reside in the Republic of Lithuania (Certification of EU national).
