Lithuania Visa and Passport Requirements
A passport valid for three months beyond the length of stay and issued within the past 10 years is required by all nationals except EU nationals holding a passport or national ID card which is valid for the duration of stay. If travelling from one border-free Schengen country to another, however, EU nationals are not required to show a passport or national ID card. It is still recommended that you travel with your passport or ID card to prove your identity if necessary though. Note that Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Ireland, Romania and the UK are not part of the Schengen area, so a passport or ID card is required if travelling to/from these countries. EU nationals are not required to possess a return ticket or show sufficient funds.
Within the European Union’s borders, visas are not required. EU nationals may stay for an unlimited period, but must register with the local authorities after three months.
Australian, Canadian and US nationals may stay in Lithuania without a visa for up to 90 days. Visas are required for citizens of other countries – e.g. Russia, Belarus and Ukraine (Ukraine citizens with biometric passports do not need visas). For current information please check at Lithuania consulate in your country.
Lithuania is a signatory to the Schengen Agreement. A 90-day visa allows you to visit all the Schengen countries but you cannot exceed 90 days in total. Once your 90 days is up, you must leave the Schengen zone.
