Visa

European Economic Area (EEA)

Depending on the citizenship and length of stay in Lithuania, one may be able to enter Lithuania without a visa. If you are a national of the European Economic Area (EEA), you do not need a visa to come to Lithuania to study. You will just need your EEA national passport or ID card to enter Lithuania.

EEA nationals should apply for a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to obtain any medical treatment necessary during the trip to an EEA country.

The countries of the EEA are: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

Non European Economic Area

If you are from outside the EEA then you will need to apply for visa D to study at Kazimieras Simonavičius University. The decision on the issue of visa D is usually made within 10 days after the receipt of application. Visa D allows students to travel via Schengen area countries for 3 months in each period of 6 months. After first semester at Kazimieras Simonavičius University, students will apply for a temporary residence permit.

Your application should be submitted to the Embassy/Consulate of the Republic of Lithuania. In countries where Lithuania does not have an Embassy, there is often another EU member state that represents Lithuania and where an application can be submitted.

When lodging the application, the applicant shall:

(a) present an application form;

(b) present a travel document;

(c) present a photograph in accordance with the standards set out in Regulation (EC) No 1683/95 or, where the VIS is operational pursuant to Article 48 of the VIS Regulation;

It is advisable to contact the Embassy/Consulate of the Republic of Lithuania for necessary information before attempting to get visa D. For more detailed information, please visit the webpage of  the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Temporary Residence Permit

After the first semester at Kazimieras Simonavičius University, degree students from outside EU/EEA countries will apply for a temporary residence permit. You have to renew your residence permit each year. It is advisable to start the renewal process in time because it takes several months before being completed

Your application must be submitted to the Migration Department. For more detailed information, please visit the website of this institution. The international relations office consults and helps to prepare the necessary documents for it.

Proof of accommodation (this document must be submitted upon receiving notification from Migration Department about decision to issue a temporary residence permit).

Legalisation of the  Educational Documents

Legalisation of the educational documents is an important issue. We do not accept your education or study documents without Apostille or Consular Legislation. Therefore, we kindly ask you to check the information on the website of Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Applicants who received their education in countries acceding to the Hague 1961 Convention (e.g. Israel, Italy, United Kingdom, Russian Federation, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, etc.) should have an attached “Apostille” to their educational documents. In most countries legalisation services (the “Apostille” is issued) are provided at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the Ministry of Education.

List of the countries acceding to the Hague 1961 Convention you can find on http://www.apostilleinfo.com.

Applicants who received their education in any other country (Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Uzbekistan, Kirghizstan, Moldavia, etc.) should pass a double legalisation of their educational documents. First of all, the education or study documents should be legalised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs where education was received. Afterwards, the documents should be legalised by the Lithuanian diplomatic mission or consular post in the country where education was received or in the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Lithuania.
