Why do you have to register your born abroad child as a Lithuanian citizen

In light of the increasing number of Lithuanians seeking residency abroad and the rise in children born abroad or to families where one parent holds citizenship in a foreign state, the issue of dual citizenship has become increasingly significant. In Lithuania, a child can now possess dual citizenship, being both a citizen of Lithuania and another country, if they acquired Lithuanian citizenship and citizenship of the other state at birth. The previous requirement for the child to choose a single citizenship upon reaching the age of 21 is no longer applicable, as more information is available regarding dual children citizenship.

As of January 1, 2021, amendments to the Republic of Lithuania Law on Citizenship came into effect, granting the right to dual (multiple) citizenship to all minors who acquired citizenship of the Republic of Lithuania by birth. According to the new provisions of the Citizenship Law, all kids up to the age of 18, who were born in Lithuania, now have the right to have double citizenship. This means they can have both Lithuanian citizenship and citizenship of another country at the same time, regardless of when they acquired citizenship of the other country – whether at birth or later – as long as they are under the age of 18.

Benefits of Lithuanian Citizenship for your child

Obtaining Lithuanian citizenship through registration offers numerous benefits for children and their families, including:

  • Dual Citizenship: Lithuania allows dual citizenship, enabling the child to retain their original citizenship while enjoying the privileges of being a Lithuanian citizen.
  • EU Rights: Lithuanian citizenship grants access to the European Union, allowing children to study, work, and reside freely within the EU member states.
  • Cultural Heritage: Registration ensures that the child remains closely connected to their Lithuanian heritage, language, and customs, instilling a sense of pride and belonging.

The registration of children born abroad as Lithuanian citizens is a heartwarming service that strengthens familial ties to Lithuania and nurtures a shared cultural identity. By embracing Lithuanian citizenship, parents provide their children with a treasure trove of opportunities and a deep connection to their ancestral homeland. This service serves as a bridge that unites families across borders, reinforcing the invaluable bonds that connect the Lithuanian diaspora to the heart and soul of Lithuania.
