Startup Visa

What is the “Startup Visa”

The Startup Visa is a new talent attraction scheme that provides a streamlined entry process to the Lithuanian startup ecosystem for innovative non-EU entrepreneurs to build, grow and compete in our booming international community. Designed for innovative startup founders who wish to establish a startup in Lithuania, you no longer need to fulfill certain capital or employment requirements to obtain a residence permit. If your business idea is deemed suitable by our panel of experts, you will be able to apply for a temporary residence permit on such basis.

What Do You Get

The Startup Visa gives you access to a streamlined migration procedure in claiming a temporary residence permit in Lithuania. A temporary residence permit will allow you to live in the country for one year, with the possibility to extend for an additional year. You will also be allowed to bring along your family. After the 2 years, in order to stay in Lithuania, you will have to fulfill regular immigration requirements.
