Republic of Lithuania

 

The Republic of Bulgaria does not have a functioning embassy in Lithuania. At the end of 2011 for financial reasons and after a decision of the Bulgarian government, the embassy in Vilnius was closed. The territory of Lithuania is covered by the Embassy of Bulgaria in Warsaw, Poland.

General information

Currency

There are no restrictions (the exchange rate of Litas is officially pegged to the Euro at a fixed exchange rate of 1 Euro = 3.4528 Litas)

Security

The central areas of the capital Vilnius and Kaunas, are relatively safe and have a strong police presence. Theft is possible. Thefts from vehicles are relatively common, especially at night and in the cities.

Risk areas (to be avoided)

Healthcare

It is advisable to drink only bottled water.

In Lithuania, the family of Ixode ticks, known as ricin, is widespread, and these are dangerous for two types of serious diseases that can be transmitted to animals and humans: Central European encephalitis and Lyme disease. Care must be taken in the summer, especially during trips through the woods. It is advisable to wear long pants and shoes and clothes with bright colours, so that ticks can be easily found. We recommend application of ointments and insect repellents and frequent inspection of the skin, and if you notice them on the skin, immediately remove them with tweezers.

Other recommendations

DRUGS: Possession, consumption and drug trafficking is punishable by up to 15 years imprisonment and applicable fine.

Road traffic

We recommend special attention to those travelling by car or other ground transportation (truck, bus) in Litva. In order to finance the maintenance of Lithuanian roads, from July 1, 2007 authorities have introduced a vignette system for payment of fees for use of the main roads in the country (from A1 to A18) for the following vehicles:

  • Bus ( от 8 места + шофьор и нагоре)
  • Камиони (от 3,5 тона и нагоре),
  • Специални превозни средства (за специални операции, но не и товарни).

The respective vignette can be purchased at service stations and other authorised locations. Additional information can be found HERE.

Travel papers and visas

Passport or identity card. Visas are not required.

There are no requirements or recommendations for any vaccinations.

Competitive service

Bulgarian citizens staying for short or long terms in the Republic of Lithuania may contact the Embassy of Bulgaria in Warsaw for consular matters.

In extreme cases – such as a damaged, lost or stolen passport, Bulgarian citizens can apply for a temporary travel passport before the embassy of an EU Member State in Lithuania.

Certification and Legalisation

The Republic of Lithuania is a party to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents.

In order for them to be valid in the Republic of Bulgaria and to serve before Bulgarian institutions, all documents issued by the authorities of Lithuania to Bulgarian citizens should be provided with an Apostille by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Lithuania.

Thus processed, documents must be translated into Bulgarian by an authorised translation agency in Bulgaria, and such translation must be certified by the “Legalisation and Certification” Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Bulgaria.

Bulgarian identity documents

The diplomatic representation of Bulgaria in Warsaw has the technical capability of taking digital images signature, face and fingerprints of the applicant and is accepting applications for the issuance of passports, ID cards or temporary passports.
