E-Resident Card as of 21 June 2021

E-Resident Card as of 21 June 2021

Since 21 June 2021, Lithuania has enacted e-resident card which will enable aliens to use administrative, public or commercial services electronically rendered in Lithuania. The willing persons can already submit applications for e-resident status and obtain e-resident card with a recorded electronic identification certificate and a qualified electronic signature certificate.

Thus, the aliens will be able to use the same electronic services as Lithuanian nationals, for example, a possibility of connecting to the Electronic Government Gateway and signing of documents by e-signature, as well as connecting to the Lithuanian Migration Information System (MIGRIS) through the Electronic Government Gateway. The range of services provided to e-residents will be gradually expanded in the future, by providing the aliens with opportunity to electronically develop business relationship, set up and manage a company, perform financial operations, and receive other e-services.

Applications for e-resident card are submitted through the Information System MIGRIS. Afterwards, the alien will have to physically arrive at the Migration Department in Lithuania. Decision on granting e-resident status will be taken immediately. During this visit, a production of e-resident card will be also ordered, which will be available for pick-up within 5 (five) business days. Currently, collection of e-resident card will be available only at the territorial branches of the Migration Department in Lithuania. From the next year, it is also planned to provide e-resident service to individuals residing abroad.
