Restoration of Lithuanian citizenship
Lithuanian passport—an official document that verifies a person’s Lithuanian citizenship and their legal ties with the state of Lithuania. The issuance of a Lithuanian passport occurs when a person acquires Lithuanian citizenship through various means: by birth, restoration, simplified procedures, naturalization, or other applicable ways.
Restoration of Lithuanian citizenship can occur when an individual or their parents, grandparents, or ancestors were Lithuanian citizens before the significant date of 15/06/1940. To confirm this claim, one may present a range of documents, including Lithuanian passports issued before the aforementioned date, certificates, birth records, and other pertinent documents reflecting their Lithuanian citizenship. Moreover, records indicating military service in the Lithuanian army, public service, or residency in Lithuania until 15/06/1940 serve as corroborating evidence.
Restoration of Lithuanian citizenship may take two forms: renunciation of the current citizenship or the acceptance of dual citizenship. For those seeking dual citizenship, merely proving past Lithuanian citizenship before 15/06/1940 is insufficient. Additional conditions that grant a person the right to be both a Lithuanian citizen and a citizen of another state are necessary. These conditions include instances of forcible deportation and emigration to another state before 11/03/1990—excluding emigration to the territory of the former Soviet Union after 15/06/1940.
The Republic of Lithuania Law on Citizenship provides further details on additional conditions for acquiring dual citizenship, such as acquiring foreign citizenship through birth, cases of adoption, marriage, and other exceptional circumstances.
Regarding the acquisition of dual citizenship due to forcible deportation from Lithuania or emigration before 11/03/1990, the following conditions can be identified:
- Having held Lithuanian citizenship before 15/06/1940: The individual or their father, mother, grandfather, grandmother, great-grandfather, or great-grandmother possessed Lithuanian citizenship before 15/06/1940.
- Fact of forcible deportation: The individual or their relatives listed above were forcibly deported from Lithuania.
- The fact of emigration from Lithuania before 11/03/1990: The individual or their relatives listed above emigrated from Lithuania before 11/03/1990, permanently settling in another state—excluding emigration to the former Soviet Union after 15/06/1940—with their residence on 11/03/1990 not being in Lithuania.
In addition to meeting these conditions, providing relevant documents is imperative. Principal documents include those attesting to Lithuanian citizenship before 15/06/1940, forcible deportation or emigration from Lithuania before 11/03/1990, family ties, and changes in first names and/or surnames. In cases where these documents are unavailable, extensive searches may be conducted in Lithuanian archives. To initiate such searches, specific personal data is necessary, including first name, surname, date of birth, and place of birth and residence in Lithuania.
