Please also ensure that your passport is valid for at least 3 months from your planned date of departure from Lithuania and has at least two blank pages.

UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and USA passport holders do not require a visa for a stay of less than 90 days in any 60-day period.

Lithuania visa information for

South African Residents

Lithuania is part of the borderless region known as the Schengen Area and South African residents require a Schengen visa in order to enter Lithuania. A passport valid for at least three months from your departure is required and a visa will only be issued if blank pages are available. Requirements for the procurement of a Lithuanian visa are subject to change but application requirements include round-trip travel itinerary specifying entry and exit dates from the Schengen state and proof of funds to support yourself during your stay (approximately $50 USD per day). Visas are issued by the Lithuanian embassy in Pretoria.
