The Minister of the Interior signed signed order amendments to change the procedure for issuing documents to foreigners

The Ministry of the Interior announced that Minister Agne Bilotaite signed order amendments that will change the procedure of documents issued to foreigners who wish to reside and live in Lithuania.

The amendments establish the requirement to submit additional documents or information for certain categories of foreigners who apply for a visa, residence permit in the Republic of Lithuania or the issuance of a residence permit card for a family member of a European Union citizen.

The Ministry indicates that the purpose of the aforementioned changes is to ensure that nationals who come from foreign countries hostile to Lithuania and therefore may pose a threat to national security and public order, do not enter the country.
