Work in Lithuania

Students from EU or European Free Trade Association do not need a visa to enter the Republic of Lithuania. They can come and stay in Lithuania for 3 months and after that at the local Migration Department they must apply for the Certificate signifying their right to reside in Lithuania. For EU citizens, the process of employment in Lithuania is quite simple, they do not need any additional document.

Non-EU students willing to work during their studies in the Republic of Lithuania must obtain a Temporary Residence Permit and then can work up to 20 hours per week during their studies at Mykolas Romeris University. No additional work permits are required. Phd students can work full-time.

After graduation, non-EU students can apply for a Temporary Residence Permit for 12 additional months for a job search and self-employment purposes. During these 12 additional months no additional work permits are required from the recent graduates.

Later on, if employment in the Republic of Lithuania continues, graduate should timely apply to renew his/her Temporary Residence Permit on the grounds of Employment contract and also obtain a work permit from the territorial Employment Services office. In order to obtain a Work Permit either an Employer or a graduate himself can apply.
