Social guarantees for students

Social guarantees for students

Students from third states may study and reside in Lithuania, if they are admitted to studies at a high education institution of Lithuania and are issued a Temporary Residence Permit on this base. The rights provided by the said Permit to third-country nationals are some narrower as compared to persons having a status of a permanent resident of Lithuania.

In a majority of cases, only social services on the base of accumulated contributions are accessible for third-country nationals having been issued a Temporary Residence Permit. When aliens study in Lithuania, they do not pay such contributions (because such contributions are deductible from wages), so students shall care about their health insurance independently. Citizens of foreign states involved in studies in Lithuania may start working (part-time) from the second year of studies only. In such a case, their contributions for social allowances will be modest, so it is recommended to care personally of the social guarantees.
