The law of Lithuania on immigration h1>
Residence permit in Lithuania and grounds for obtaining residence permit:
1. Business immigration to Lithuania.
Business immigration to Lithuania is possible if an immigrant has shares in a Lithuanian company, or has registered his own business. Sometimes it’s enough just to be the owner of a 10% stake in one of the serious companies, so that you get a temporary residence permit. Open a business in the country is also inexpensive, at 3 thousand euros, as a rule, you can keep up with all permits and necessary documents. Personally, in Lithuania will need to attend only 2 times, you can go on a tourist visa. After the company is established (changes from 01.11.2014) are obliged to employ three Lithuanian citizens and only after that you will be able to file documents with the migration services and get a business visa that is valid in the territory of the Schengen zone (3 months). After the expiration of this period, you will be provided with a residence permit (by law, the issue of obtaining a residence permit up to 6 months).
Attention . Always correctly assess not only your current capabilities, but also the requirements that the country makes. Disregarding this, people often lose their money and time, face the impossibility of family reunification or extension of status. In Europe there are not so many countries where it is possible to obtain residence permit for yourself and for all your family quite easily and without refusals.
2. Work in Lithuania and Vilnius.
It will be difficult to receive a working visa. It distributes jobs at the Lithuanian labor exchange. This organization provides quotas for jobs for foreign workers, therefore the issue of employment and the provision of a work visa, as a rule, is solved for a long time and not always in favor of the future immigrant. It is a little easier to legalize your stay in the country – it’s to open a private business, even if it’s nominal, and after that, having a residence permit, you can start a job.
There is an opportunity for research activities under the contract. When a researcher will work for the benefit of Lithuania, while he will be signed a labor contract with one of the research companies, a temporary residence permit will be issued to him 2-3 weeks after the filing of documents. Such a visa will be issued for the duration of the contract. An immigrant can freely travel around the country and travel abroad in Lithuania.

3. Education and higher education in Lithuania.
The intention to get an education in Lithuania (under the program of secondary, higher education, training, internship, etc.) may be the basis for the provision of residence permit. According to the rules for admission to Lithuanian universities for foreigners, it is necessary to provide a certificate of completion of secondary school in your country, entrance examinations (this depends on the institution and faculty chosen), residence permit or student visa, financial guarantor (it certifies that the student will be able to pay for tuition and insurance).
A foreign student who wants to get a higher education in Lithuania must pass a test in knowledge of the Lithuanian language (verbally and in writing). The language test is the University of Vilnius. And it should be noted that some programs can be conducted in English, French, German and Russian. The diploma of higher educational institutions of Lithuania is recognized in the EU member states.
4. Real estate in Lithuania.
A very good investment will be the purchase of a house with land, which can also be leased, in other words, a source of income. But in order to buy land it is necessary to establish at least a personal enterprise, because in Lithuania land is not sold to citizens of other countries. In this case, a personal company, signing a lease, stops for 12 months its activities and does not need financial support. The question of the place of residence can be solved depending on what kind of structure is located on the acquired land (a dwelling house or an industrial structure).
You can not buy land in private ownership, on the rights of exclusive property owned by Lithuania (this is the land allocated for the seaside zone or the territory of state seaports, inland waters, etc.).
