What information about ancestors is needed for an Eligibility assessment?
  • Full Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Place of Birth (or living) in Lithuania: town or a village
  • Date when your ancestor has left Lithuania

In case you do not have all information above or not sure about its accuracy, do not worry – our expert will get back to you and discuss everything in detail personally.

How long does the process of restoring Lithuanian citizenship take?

On average our clients get their Citizenship granted in about 6-12 months from submission of the application. Recently we have even managed to get the application approved in 3 months!

Usually, it takes 1-3 months to prepare the application for submission (the actual time mostly depends on how fast you can get the necessary documents from your country of residence). The longest part of the process is with the Migration department where the application is being evaluated.  We constantly follow up on your case during its processing period to make sure any required information is provided and a successful outcome is granted as soon as possible.

Since 2013 we’ve managed to maintain a consistent over 99% success rate at restoring Lithuanian Citizenship for our clients around the world.

What documents are required from the applicant?

We will need to find the documents proving that you are a direct descendant of a Lithuanian citizen. Usually, we require a copy of the applicant’s passport, birth certificate, one of the parent’s/grand-parent’s births certificates. In some cases, we require some additional documents such as marriage certificates (whenever the surnames were changed), and naturalisation certificates (if we need to prove name changes or other documents are not available).

We will provide you with the exact list of documents that are needed for the application after analysing your specific case and available documents. Each application is different and the list of documents needed varies depending on the circumstances. We always try to minimise the number of documents required from our clients. We usually search for documents, proving the Lithuanian citizenship of your ancestors, in Lithuanian and German archives ourselves.

Is Lithuanian Citizenship equivalent to EU Citizenship?

Lithuania became a full-fledged member of the European Union on 1 May 2004.

Lithuanian citizenship will automatically grant you access to all the incredible benefits of an EU Passport holder. You will be able to freely live, work, study, set up a business, or retire in any EU country of your choice. As an EU national you will have full access to Social security benefits including world-class healthcare which is free or highly subsidised in most EU countries.

Furthermore, children born to a person with dual Lithuanian citizenship will automatically get EU citizenship, as well as their children and their children. So this is an investment for generations.
