If you want to visit Lithuania for a work visa, you will need to apply for a work permit visa. Like any other country, Lithuania has a unique set of laws regarding immigration and foreign nationals who wish to work in the country. It’s part of the European Union (EU), which means citizens of other EU member states do not need a work permit or visa. For citizens outside of the EU, there are several visa options. Individuals who plan to work in Lithuania will generally need to obtain two separate documents: a work permit and a visa to enter and stay in Lithuania. The visa required for foreign employees is referred to as a national visa (D).

It is the employer’s responsibility to apply for a work permit on behalf of the foreign employee. The employee should provide the employer with the necessary documents, which include:

Proof of qualifications for the job, such as previous professional experience and education,
