Hello, i am a lithuanian who has USA citizenship and who is planning to move back to lithuania for good in two months. How does that work ? Do i need a visa / permits to live and work ? Has anyone went though this ? Please help and advise. I am so lost. Also, are there any groups of americans in vilnius ? i would like to meet you and share stories/get some advices.

(I am not a lawyer but I have researched this area.) Your passport may expire but theoretically you still have your citizenship. The question is ... when you received US citizenship did you lose your Lithuanian citizenship? Lithuania recently tightened its laws on dual-citizenship. One possibility is to go to the Lithuanian consulate (not sure where you live) and renew your passport. Your expired passport is proof of your citizenship. Pay your money and be done with it. However you may be asked if you have citizenship with another country. I am not very familiar with the citizenship laws but the US Consulate website has plenty of documentation on who can have dual-citizenship and who cannot. Again, don't confuse citizenship with a passport. Hope this helps.

Hey , Thanks for replying. Well, my situation with Lithuanian passport is a little weird. When I got American citizenship I did not inform Lithuania about it. At that time I had not idea I was supposed to that ( nobody bothered to tell me that ). So I do have a Lithuanian passport. But it expired in 2012. Also, while getting my American passport I changed to my last name ( made it shorter). so... well, what do I do now ? go back to Lithuania and claim that I have a right to Lithuanian citizenship and loose my American passport ? What is going to happen to my last name ? which one will they use ? I mean... this whole situation is so weird. Makes more confused and there is nothing on the internet that would normally explain what to do :( Please let me know if have any more input. I would really really appreciate it.

Hello guys, Im a dentist from India and planning to take Master in Public Health in Lithuania this year. Jus wanted to know how much is monthly expense thr? N overall how is life thr?

It depends a lot on where you are going to live. Dormitories can be very cheap, and it is best to stay there at the beginning of your studies. 350 - 450 euro can be enough for living expenses for one month.

Other than ExpatExchange, what are good ways for me to advertise a vacancy for nanny and housekeeper on the local market in Vilnius? Is there a "monster.com" for Vilnius? Or a Craigslist? Or a department of Labor that could help me advertise the position? What is the best way to reach potential applicants over the internet?
nerka replied most recently with:
It's 1500 LTL /month (due to the switch-over to the EUR currency from the 1st Jan 2015, the prices here, along with salaries, will go up a bit in 2015, though). You don't need to worry about anything else as long as you do not employ her, but hire her instead, as a private person who has either "Individuali veikla pagal pazyma" (Private business with certificate) or "Verslo liudijimas" (Business certificate). In other words the burden of the taxes and similar stuff is then lying solely on their shoulders. One note though - for 1500 LTL payment majority of the nannies will hesitate signing a contract, in order to hide the income and save taxes. If you pay above 1500 LTL, you should find also those willing to sign the contract, and to pay their taxes. Hope that helps.

ashen89 posted Moving to Lithuania - Advice on the Lithuania forum:
Hi, I'm an Englishman with a Lithuanian girlfriend and we've been discussing potentially moving to Lithuania for a period of time in the future. I've seen a few similar topics on this forum but nothing in the last year or 2, I thought perhaps conditions may have changed. My question is: what kind of work will I be able to find and how likely am I to be able to find it? My girlfriends family is located in Jurbarkas though Kaunas, Klaipeda and Vilnius are the 3 most likely destinations. I'm 25 and have a degree in Microbiology and experience working in Quality Assurance but I appreciate that without the language skills work in such areas would be impossible so I'm willing to do low-skilled work and learn the language as I go. Work in places such as hostels, hotels and bars would be ideal Would it be worth it for me to get a qualification in teaching English as a foreign language? Are there opportunities in this sector? Any info at all would be much appreciated!

Hi all, I'm soon to be moving to lithuania for a few months on a secondment. I was wondering what the average council tax, utility bills and agency fees and deposit on rental accommodation is Any help will be greatly appreciated!
DashOWanderlust replied most recently with:
Good luck! Deposit on an apartment is usually first months rent. Rent costs vary greatly depending on where you live and the size of the apartment. Internet costs about 50 LTL per month. Utility bills are separate and are electricity, gas (if you have it), heat, water, and garbage disposal. Electricity and water are fairly inexpensive, however heat is very expensive and can be up to 1000LTL per month. Heat is controlled by the city in most apartments.
