For the duration of stay Lithuania visa falls into two categories:

  • Short-stay (for stays up to 90 days)
  • Long-stay (for stays more than 90 days)

Each of these categories has several subcategories according to the purpose of travel to Lithuania.

The validity period of a single Schengen visa usually covers the travel period specified in the Lithuanian visa application form. If you frequently travel to the Schengen area, you may obtain a one-, two-, three- and five-year multi-entry Schengen visa, depending on the Lithuanian consulate's decision. However, you should note that you can stay in the Schengen area for a maximum of 90 days in any case. In this case, holders of multi-entry long-term Schengen visas can remain in the Schengen area maximum of 90 days every 180 days.

It depends. During the examination of an application, the consular office may call the applicant for an interview.

pickvisa.com

What documents do I have to take with me when I travel to Lithuania on a Schengen visa?

Mere possession of a Schengen visa does not mean that the holder has an automatic right to enter the Schengen Area (i.e. the territory of the countries that issue Schengen permit).

At the Schengen external border, the visa holder may be requested to produce documents justifying the purpose and conditions of the intended stay and that they have sufficient means of subsistence, both for the period of the intended stay and for the return to their country of origin or transit to a third state into which they are sure to be admitted, or are in a position to acquire such means lawfully. The applicant should also have adequate travel medical insurance valid throughout the territory of the Member States and cover the entire period of intended stay or transit.

pickvisa.com

What is the maximum period for which a visa can be granted in case of a Personal Invitation/Private Visit?

Depending on the invitation details, a visa can be granted for up to a maximum of 90 days in 6 months (Short-term visa) with a validity of from one year to 5 years.

Is travel insurance necessary for Lithuania?

If you need a visa for traveling to Lithuania (Schengen visa):

Can I change my hotel reservation after getting a Lithuania visa?

You can change your hotel reservation with the condition that you notify the authority issuing a visa before your travel. There is a high possibility that your hotel will inform the Lithuanian embassy or consulate in the case of reservation cancellation.

Will I get my Lithuanian visa at the end of the visa process?
