People who are not family members of a citizen of the Republic of Lithuania may arrive and live in Lithuania with residence permits and other documents issued under the general procedure. Citizens of the EU and EFTA Member States are issued documents and the procedure for their issuance differs from the procedure applied to the citizens of third countries. A citizen of the EU and EFTA Member State (hereinafter referred to in general as a EU citizen) may arrive in Lithuania and stay there up to three months counting from the first day of his/her arrival in the country. If a person stays in Lithuania longer than three months, he/she must have documents certifying his right to temporarily or permanently reside in Lithuania. Then, having declared his/her place of residence in Lithuania, an EU citizen acquires the right to all social guarantees of the Republic of Lithuania if these rights are not related to citizenship (e.g., voting).
The document certifying the right of an EU citizen to reside in Lithuania permanently or temporarily is a certificate of the form established by the Minister of the Interior certifying the right of an EU citizen to reside in Lithuania permanently or temporarily.
