Work visa to Lithuania is a long-term visa for the purpose of employment; this type of visa enables legal employment on the territory of the Republic of Lithuania.
Since 2004, Lithuania is a part of the European Union. Despite this fact, the unemployment rate in the country is constantly growing. In 2019 it’s around 9%.
The minimum salary in the Republic of Lithuania is 400 EURO/month, at the same time the average salary is around 700 EURO/month after taxes.
Of course, Lithuanian salaries are not attractive to Europeans. In addition, all students of Lithuanian universities are willing to move to the more developed countries of Western Europe where the living standards are significantly higher.
These factors have caused the overall shortage of labor force in Lithuania.
On the other hand, it facilitates the migration of the workforce from all over the world.
