How to apply for asylum in Lithuania

If you are afraid to return to your home country or the country where you lived previously because of fear of violence, persecution, war or you are in danger of suffering serious harm in that country, you can apply for protection in Lithuania. The first step to receiving international protection is to apply for asylum.

Please note that you must be in the territory of Lithuania or at a port of entry (an airport, land border crossing checkpoint or seaport) before you can apply for asylum in Lithuania.

If you are in Belarus, you can also apply for asylum at the Lithuanian Embassy in Belarus.
