Lifestyle

Lifestyle
Lithuania offer a good quality of life to the international expatriate. It’s naturally beautiful, full of lakes, rivers and forests. Perfect for hikers, campers and backpackers. The landscape is also dotted with a number of storybook castles, baroque buildings, churches, pagan ruins and medieval villages. Lithuania is also a safe country and not overly difficult to navigate or shop retail (although expats are encouraged to learn at least some basic Lithuanian). Eighty percent of the youth speak English and about one third of the adults; so, if one is having communication problems, help is usually not far away.

Visa Restrictions

Visa Restrictions

If you are a European Union National you have the entitlement to work in any European Union member country without needing to obtain a work permit. The only exception to this is if you are planning to work in Croatia where some restrictions can apply. However you should still investigate the consequences of working and the effect this will have on your benefits (health insurance, maternity/paternity, pensions, occupational accidents and diseases, death grants, unemployment, early retirement, family benefits), and the implications of where and how much tax you pay. The European Union offers this Tax advise at its Your Europe website. Once you have been in an EU country for more than 3 months you will be required to register your residence and obtain a residency permit.

If you are not a European Union National then you will require a work permit. The requirements for this often differ depending on your Nationality. For the latest up to date information for entry please visit Lithuania Consular Information  website.
