Does Lithuania allow dual citizenship?

Dual citizenship, also known as multiple citizenship or dual nationality, refers to the status of an individual who is concurrently recognized as a citizen of two or more countries. In the context of Lithuania, dual citizenship allows individuals to hold citizenship in Lithuania while also being citizens of another state. This legal status provides individuals with certain rights and privileges in both countries, as well as obligations to adhere to the laws and regulations of each jurisdiction.

Understanding dual citizenship laws in Lithuania is of paramount importance for individuals who may be eligible or considering acquiring dual citizenship. These laws outline the conditions under which dual citizenship is permitted, as well as the rights, obligations, and implications associated with holding citizenship in multiple countries. By familiarizing themselves with these laws, individuals can make informed decisions regarding their citizenship status and navigate any legal processes or requirements involved in obtaining dual citizenship in Lithuania.

Explanation of Dual Citizenship Laws in Lithuania

Dual citizenship laws in Lithuania are outlined in Article 7 of the Lithuanian Citizenship Law. This article specifies the circumstances under which a citizen of the Republic of Lithuania may also be a citizen of another state simultaneously. There are some circumstances:

  • Acquiring citizenship of the Republic of Lithuania and citizenship of another state by birth. This provision allows children born to Lithuanian citizens in another country to acquire dual citizenship. If a Lithuanian citizen gives birth abroad, the child automatically becomes a citizen of that country. However, by registering the child as a Lithuanian citizen, they can also retain Lithuanian citizenship. This ensures they hold dual citizenship, being citizens of Lithuania and their country of birth.
  • If a person who was a citizen of Lithuania before 1940 was expelled from the occupied Republic of Lithuania before March 11, 1990, or their descendants (children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren). This circumstance is particularly relevant to descendants from countries that were part of the USSR.
  • If a person who was a citizen of Lithuania before 1940 left Lithuania before March 11, 1990, or their descendants. This circumstance is relevant for descendants from all countries that were not part of the USSR.
  • If a person – a citizen of the Republic of Lithuania, if adopted by citizens (a citizen) of another state before reaching the age of 18, and thereby acquired citizenship of another state

Additionally, there may be other circumstances affecting dual citizenship in Lithuania. If you have any questions regarding dual citizenship, it is advisable to seek guidance from a qualified lawyer in Lithuania.

Dual citizenship brings about various legal rights and obligations for individuals in Lithuania. As a dual citizen, one enjoys the privileges accorded to Lithuanian citizens, including the right to live, work, and study in Lithuania, as well as access to healthcare and social services. Additionally, dual citizens have the right to participate in political processes such as voting in elections and running for public office.

However, there are also certain considerations for individuals seeking dual citizenship. It’s important to understand that while dual citizenship can offer certain advantages, it may also entail responsibilities and limitations.
