Additionally, when travelling to Lithuania, you can only select transit airports that should be heading to Schengen countries.Through the 1st study year at the university, a foreign student should apply for a TRP, which is a temporary residence permit per year. The Migration Department requires close to 4 months for making a decision on issuing a TRP. After applying for a TRP, the following documentation will also be needed.


  1. Passport that should be valid for 3 months after the TRP’s expiration.
