Which documents to bring?

There is no such thing as a single list of documents required upon arrival / return to Lithuania – it all depends on individual situation. Most of the EU approved forms (such as E104, U1, U2, etc.) are required when one is claiming for different kinds of social benefits. If you do not plan to claim the benefits but only wish to transfer the employment record, none of the additional documents are required, the most important thing is to inform of your leave the institutions of EU member state where you currently reside.

When moving to Lithuania, it is advisable to bring these documents:

  1. Documents certifying periods of employment and professional relations, such as:
    • Contract of employment;
    • Payslips or forms certifying income;
    • U1 form (which will be useful claiming unemployment social insurance benefit in Lithuania);
    • U2 form (if you receive unemployment benefit in other EU member state and would like to transfer it to Lithuania);
    • P60 or P45 forms (relevant to those living in United Kingdom or Ireland);
    • Pension certificate (if you are retired).
  2. Documents certifying social contributions, such as:
  3. If you are a foreigner, bring documents required for the residence permit or visa. If a foreigner intends to get married in Lithuania, he should also bring his birth certificate and the certificate of no impediment.
  4. S1/E106 forms (useful if you plan to live in Lithuania but work and/or your health is insured in other EU member states) or S2/E112 (useful if one is coming back for planned medical treatment).
  5. European health insurance card which will guarantee an access to medically necessary state-provided healthcare during a temporary stay in Lithuania.
  6. Documents proving your education/qualifications. If you have children, bring a certificate proving their level of education completed abroad; a certificate from local Lithuanian school (if a child was attending one), child’s medical extracts as well as a vaccination book (if available).
  7. International driver's licence (in case your national driver's license  does not meet the requirements outlined by the Conventions on Road Traffic (for example, if it was issued in the United States). Read more about driving in Lithuania.
