In Lithuania the Lithuanian Migration Information System will start operating. This system is aimed at simplifying and quickening the process of submission and examination of applications and documents.

Applications of third-country nationals and EU citizens regarding documents listed thereunder will be provided to the Migration Department only by electronic means via the MIGRIS Information System:

- Applications of third-country nationals to issue/change a temporary or permanent residence permit in Lithuania;

- Applications of EU citizens to issue/change a certificate certifying the right to temporarily or permanently reside in the Republic of Lithuania;

- Applications of EU citizen’s family members to issue/change a card of permit of EU citizen’s family members to temporarily or permanently reside in Lithuania.

When submitting an application regarding the permit to reside in the Republic of Lithuania, the natural or legal person will have to sign in to the Lithuanian Migration Information System MIGRIS at address www.migracija.lt and provide all necessary documents. Application forms will have to be selected according to the alien’s nationality and purpose of arrival. Necessary documents can be provided by the alien himself or by his authorized representative, employee, higher school, etc.

When applying for an issue of permit to reside in Lithuania for the first time, the alien will have to create his personal account on a website www.migracija.lt. In order to create account, the e-mail address must be used, where the person will receive a password and will have to change it immediately, and other mandatory data.

Aliens having the right to reside in Lithuania and personal code granted herein will be able to log in the abovementioned system in the same way as Lithuanian citizens, i.e. by using e-signature, e-banking, and other opportunities. The natural or legal person of the Republic of Lithuania submitting the application for the alien will also have to use these usual means of authentication and recognition in electronic space.

When submitting an application by electronic means, the alien will have to book the time of arrival at the territorial unit of the Migration Department, arrive at the territorial unit of the Migration Department, irrespective of the declared place of residence thereof, and provide facial image and biometric data. The system will allow to choose the time of visit to the territorial unit of the Migration Department within a period of 2 months. The person will not be able to apply if he has not reserved his visit time.

Upon arrival for a visit at the territorial unit of the Migration Department, the person will have, alongside biometric data, provide originals of documents submitted electronically that were enclosed to the application. Originals will be returned after being verified by a specialist.

The alien will be able to pay the state fee for an issue of residence permit by bank transfer or cash, or bank card, upon arrival to the territorial unit of the Migration Department. There will no longer be a separate fee for document processing.

When the alien arrives at the specialist, he will check the documents submitted by the person with copies of documents submitted by e-mail, and will register the application. From the date of registration of the application, its examination term will start to be counted.

During the application examination terms which were valid until now, not only the application will be examined, but also a document will be produced.

After a positive decision is made, the person will have to come to the territorial unit of the Migration Department only to take a produced document.
