In a research published by Eurostat, Europe’s unemployment rate has significantly lowered from 11.6% in 2015 to 6.4% in 2020, even after UK left the European Union earlier in the year.
With an EU Lithuanian passport, you are also eligible to live in some non-EU countries such as Norway, Switzerland and Iceland; If you are not aware, these countries are some of the safest countries in the world, ranking among the top 10 safest countries globally according to Forbes.
We’ve discussed several benefits of having a Lithuanian dual passport quite a couple of times in our blog. Besides from reconnecting to your heritage, you are entitled to many more benefits for you and your family.
If you have already traveled to Europe, you would know that most US, Australian, Canadian and New Zealand citizens can enter the EU without a visa. However, they cannot live or study in the EU for a short time period by acquiring the necessary permit for the purpose. This is a troublesome process and does not guarantee that you can even reside in the EU for a full year, since most of the time, you can only get a 90-day permit at most every 6 months. If you qualify for EU citizenship, you can travel between the 28-member states freely, with no visas, and remain there with no restrictions
Lithuanian passport holders are legally entitled not only to reside but to look for career opportunities in any other EU member country. The alternative, getting an employer-sponsored visa for non-EU citizens is not only time consuming but also difficult to acquire without providing a foolproof reason to get approved. Because of this, most employers prefer to work with EU citizens as they do not need to deal with complicated permits or visas unless they are forced to.
Wherever in the EU, you are working, you are entitled to healthcare benefits with a Lithuanian dual passport. This is one of the most important things that Lithuanian citizenship can provide, so people with Lithuanian descent try to re-establish their European identity.
If you want to retire and enjoy the fruits of your hard work, Lithuanian citizens also can own properties not only in Lithuania but in any EU country without getting any special permit. Whether if it’s buying land for investment or permanently retiring after decades of hard labor, your Lithuanian dual passport will help you with that.
