Lithuania begins processing extension applications under the Temporary Protection Directive
Effective 12 December 2023, Lithuania's Migration Department began accepting appointments for the renewal of temporary residence permits held by refugees of the Ukraine crisis issued under the Temporary Protection Directive (TPD). In Lithuania, temporary residence permits issued under the TPD are currently valid until 4 March 2024. In line with the European Council's proposal, holders who seek to extend their permits until March 2025 must file extension applications online on the Lithuanian migration information system MIGRIS, book an appointment with any office of the Migration Department regardless of their place of residence in Lithuania, and present a valid identity document at the appointment. Successful applicants will receive a new electronic permit via their MIGRIS account.
