You have probably already looked at the page about the benefits of dual EU citizenship that you can get due to your Lithuanian roots. But now we want to talk about something else.
The main idea that we want to convey to you is why you should start the process of restoring Lithuanian citizenship (dual citizenship) right now. And you should do it not only for yourself – for your children!
Most of the people who contact us say that they want to reconnect with their historical homeland.
Within each of us there is something that we call the soul. And for many of us, the soul has deep wounds that are not forgotten and are not healed by time. They can remind you of themselves at any opportunity – for example, when you saw some reminder of the source of your emotional trauma in the line of news. Or they can remind you of themselves in your last moments – like that most essential thing in life that you never did.
The blood of your ancestors flows into you
Today Lithuania attracts visitors with its calm and prosperous lifestyle in a country with a growing economy, good ecology, and high social development.
But it wasn’t always like that. Many, many years ago, your ancestors left Lithuania in search of a better life for their families, and their future descendants. Or simply from the need to save their lives and members of their families.
They had to rebuild their lives, learn a new and strange language, and grow used to an existence far from their homes. Most Lithuanians who had to flee their country during three waves of emigration suffered and toiled.
Perhaps, you might have heard their stories from your grandparents or great-grandparents.
And this was done to give their family and descendants a better, more prosperous life. But the pain of leaving Lithuania always remained buried inside. It was impossible to sever the connection to their true essence— they carried their homeland in their hearts for the rest of their lives.
And now their descendants, although enjoying the freedom found in a new country, bear an open wound that refuses to heal.
That impossible longing you’ve felt for something you can’t quite describe? That’s a piece of Lithuania calling you still, a thin thread of connection calling you back to your true homeland after all this time.
Do you know about the three-generation rule?
You might still be able to regain the Lithuanian citizenship your family had to give up for your sake. Without giving up your existing citizenship, and even without having to actually move. And thus heal your spiritual wound.
But do you know about the rule of three generations?
The three-generation rule means that you can get Lithuanian citizenship if you have an ancestor that had Lithuanian citizenship three generations back. It can be one of your parents, grandparents, or great-grandparents.
Miss this opportunity and you will lose it forever. Not only for yourself but also for your children!
Do you know what is the worst thing that can happen? If one day your child says to you:
“Well, why didn’t you do this? Why did you cut me from my roots? “
After all the hardships that your ancestors endured, you are allowed to restore the thread of connection with the homeland of your ancestors. And to refuse it, referring to the lack of time or money, is a crime to your children!
Sounds too harsh? But it is true!
Believe me, it was not easy for your ancestors. For many of them it was a matter of survival. They were forced to suffer in many ways, work at low-paid jobs, save on food.
There are things in this life that are worth more than just money.
If you meet the eligibility criteria, if you meet the three-generation rule, then restoring your Lithuanian citizenship is a duty for you. This is the duty not only to yourself, but it is also a duty to your children!
We all strive to make the lives of our children better. Dual Lithuanian citizenship will give your children the opportunity to live, work, study and travel in Europe freely, as its citizen.
But most importantly, it will allow them to have a connection to their roots!
Don’t deprive them of this opportunity!
