Let us assess your case
It’s as easy as answering five questions
In 2003, the Lithuanian European Union referendum took place to decide whether Lithuania should join the European Union (EU). Over 90% of those who voted supported membership and Lithuania joined the EU on May 1, 2004.
EU membership gives Lithuanian citizens the right to travel, study, work and live in any of the 28 EU countries without any additional permits or documents. Many people belonging to the Lithuanian diaspora and who are descendants of Lithuanian immigrants have the right to Lithuanian citizenship regardless of where they were born or where they live.
Lithuanian immigration has resulted in hundreds of thousands of people with Lithuanian ancestry living outside Lithuania. Large waves of Lithuanian migration occurred during the 19th and 20th century, a large portion of whom were Jewish. Communities in the United States make up the largest part of this diaspora, where as many as one million Americans can claim Lithuanian descent and with the largest concentrations of Lithuanian Americans making their homes in the Great Lakes area and the Northeast. Lithuanian communities in Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Uruguay also developed before World War II. Many descendants of Lithuanians migrated to Israel, which today has a large ethnic Lithuanian community.
Today, Lithuanian migration offers millions of potential Lithuanian citizens living abroad the right to recover their Lithuanian citizenship.
What are the benefits of Lithuanian Citizenship

A person with Lithuanian citizenship can live in any of the 28 countries of the EU without special visas,
A person with Lithuanian citizenship can work in any of the 28 countries of the EU without the need of applying for a work permit,
A person with Lithuanian citizenship has the right to an education at schools and universities within the territory of the 28 countries of the European Union and in some places with preferential tuition,

Are you eligible?
Lithuanian Citizenship Law has been amended many times over the past 8 years and its terms can be interpreted using different criteria.
The current citizenship law grants the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of Lithuanian citizens whose ancestors left Lithuania prior to 1990 and who became citizens of another country, the right to reclaim Lithuanian citizenship.
In some cases, especially for the offsrping of those who left Lithuania prior to June 15, 1940, there are special requirements, related to the conditions under which they left (persecution, fear of losing their lives, and others) that must be met.
In addition, because Lithuania became an independent state in 1918, those who left before this year were not Lithuanian citizens and therefore their offspring are not eligible to claim citizenship.
