Do I need a passport or visa to enter?
Lithuania is a party to the Schengen Agreement. As a U.S. citizen, you may enter Lithuania for up to 90 days for tourist or business purposes without a visa. Your passport should be valid for at least three months beyond your period of stay. For further details about travel to and within Schengen countries, please see our Schengen fact sheet. If you are staying in Lithuania for more than 90 days within any six-month period, you must apply for temporary residency. Lithuanian authorities recommend applying for a residency permit through a Lithuanian embassy or consulate before initial entry into Lithuania, as processing times can run beyond 90 days. All foreigners from non-European Union countries seeking entry into Lithuania must carry proof of a medical insurance policy contracted for payment of all costs of hospitalization and medical treatment in Lithuania. If you lack proof, you must purchase short-term insurance at the border from a Lithuanian provider for roughly $1.00 per day; the number of days will be calculated from the day of entry until the date of your return ticket. Children residing in Lithuania must have written permission from at least one parent to travel outside the country if neither parent is accompanying them on their trip. This policy is not applicable to temporary visitors. Visit the Embassy of Lithuania website for the most current visa information.
