Residence permits for Third country nationals

Residence permits in the Republic of Lithuania are issued to a foreigner who is not a national of a Member State of the European Union. A foreigner has the right to choose, change or leave a place of residence in the Republic of Lithuania and return to it for the period of validity of a residence permit. A foreigner must notify the Chief Police Commissariat of Migration (Migration Service) about changes in his or her place of residence and keep in mind that the Law on the Declaration of Residence states that if a person leaves the Republic of Lithuania for more than 6 months period, he or she must declare the departure (in such case the residence permit may be revoked).

There are two types of residence permit in Lithuania: temporary residence permit and permanent residence permit in the Republic of Lithuania.

Temporary residence permit

Temporary residence permit is a document granting a foreigner the right to temporary reside in the Lithuania for a period specified in the permit.

Permanent residence permit

Permanent residence permit is a document entitling a foreigner to reside in Lithuania and certifying the alien’s permanent resident status.
