Lithuanian Citizenship Through Descent

Did you know that if you have Lithuanian ancestry, you might be eligible for Lithuanian citizenship and an EU passport? This means you can live, work and study in any of the 28 EU member countries with no restrictions.

How does it work?

You can apply to have your Lithuanian citizenship restored by proving your heritage and by satisfying eligibility criteria set by the Lithuanian government. Your application form needs to be accompanied by your ancestral and personal documents, translated into Lithuanian. 

How do I know if I qualify?

Many people whose parents, grandparents or great-grandparents were born in Lithuania qualify for Lithuanian citizenship through descent.

In essence you need to have at least one ancestor who:

  • Was a citizen of Lithuania between 1918 and 1940; or
  • Left Lithuania before 1990.
