From Tuesday, foreign nationals will be vaccinated against COVID-19 (coronavirus infection).

According to the established procedure, citizens of the Republic of Lithuania who have lived abroad and come to live here for more than 183 days a year can be vaccinated in Lithuania. Vaccination is also provided to citizens of European Union (EU) member states and European Free Trade Association member states and their family members who have come to live in Lithuania for more than 3 months in half a year and have acquired the right to reside in our country.

Foreign citizens and stateless persons who have been issued a document granting the right to reside in Lithuania upon arrival here are also vaccinated.

It is important to mention that a person belonging to the target group who received the first dose abroad in Lithuania will be vaccinated with the second dose of the same vaccine, regardless of which priority group is currently being vaccinated. Such persons should apply to the vaccinating health care institution (https://koronastop.lrv.lt/lt/vakcina/vakcinacijos-tvarka), where they want to be vaccinated, and provide it with documents confirming the receipt of the first dose of the vaccine.
