Due to situation in Belorussia, Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs decided to give citizens of
Belorussian national visa in a more simple way. From 21st of September, 2020 till 21st of March,
2021 there will be easier to gather documents needed for visa, and the person will be allowed to
show the account that contains money for only 3 months staying in Lithuania or he could show
the responsibility of company that will be able to pay this amount of money.
Lithuanian government says that this will help Belorussian companies to locate their business in
Lithuania, because the laws principles here are more reliable and protective.
Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius says Lithuania’s diplomatic service is capable of ensuring a
smooth and swift visa issuance process without bureaucratic and administrative obstacles.
Agne Rasciute says: “The visa facilitation will expand opportunities for Belarusian citizens to
arrive and seek jobs in Lithuania while those who have job offers will be able to move here
