How to Complete your Lithuanian Dual Citizenship Application: Part 8

complete your lithuanian dual citizenship application

After you’ve obtained all of your necessary documents, translations, Apostilles, etc. It is time to complete your Lithuanian Dual Citizenship application. The application can be found online, here: https://usa.mfa.lt/usa/en/travel-and-residence/consular-issues/citizenship-of-lithuania

The application should be filled out in Lithuanian. I did not write it in English and then pay to have it translated into Lithuanian. The application gives prompts for your answers like “yes or no” “was or was not”.  This makes it pretty easy to fill it out in Lithuanian correctly, even if you are not fluent.

I am not fluent in Lithuanian, so I input each line of the application into Google Translate one “question” at a time. Inputting too many words into google translate often gives you a crazy mis-translated jumble of words with no context. I created my own “English version” so that I would know what the application was asking me. I’ve uploaded a copy of my “English” version here.

Note: THIS IS ONLY FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE. I DO NOT MAKE ANY CLAIMS REGARDING THE ACCURACY OF THIS DOCUMENT OR ITS TRANSLATIONS. However, my citizenship was approved – so I did not have any problems. Also, make sure you are filling out the the official Lithuanian version of the application, listed on the consulate’s website. You should only be reading the “English version” as a guide to what each line means.

  1. Dear Nicole, I am clinging to your advice about gaining dual nationality like a life-raft! One thing I don’t understand, though, is whether you can just ask the Lithuanian archives for ‘anything about my grandfather’ or if you have to ask for a specific document. I would really appreciate if you could offer more detailed advice about this as I feel stuck and don’t know where to start. I have a letter with his Lithuanian passport number written on but I think it was issued in the UK.

    • Hi Sam!

      When you fill out the two forms that I have listed, for either the Historical or State Lithuanian archives, they will automatically send you everything they find! No need to specify a document. Fill out a form for each grandparent and just make sure you include all the information you have about them. For example, put the Lithuanian Passport number that you have on there. It will only make it easier for them to find records. Once they do the search, they will send you everything that comes back – or in my case they will send you a certified letter. I hope this helps! Feel free to ask anything else you are wondering! Thanks!
