Work in Lithuania

Are you a foreign student in Lithuania eager to find a perfect job?

workinlithuania.lt/relocation/students/ will help you to kickstart your career here!

This foreign student-specific website features student job postings (internships and junior positions included), latest migration information, other job offers and the latest relevant news.

The website was launched by “Study in LT” partners “Work in Lithuania” – the initiative which encourages professionals living abroad to build their careers in Lithuania and helps international companies meet their potential employees.

Working During the Studies

International students have the right to work while studying in Lithuania as long as they are enrolled in a university. EU students can work full-time, meaning up to 40 hours per week. International students from non EU countries can also work up to 40 hours per week after obtaining the temporary residence permit. The limitation of working time does not apply to international students in doctoral studies.

Working After the Studies

International students have a possibility to stay in the country for 15 months afterwards to look for a job:

• During the last year of studying apply for a temporary residence permit renewal for 3 additional months from the day when studies are finished.

• After graduating, you also have the possibility to apply for a temporary residence permit for 12 months for job search and self-employment purposes.
