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:
- 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).
- E104 form;
- Form which includes your social insurance number;
- if returning from the UK, it is recommended to get a statement of your National Insurance contributions.
