Going native in Lithuania

Finding a job in Lithuania as a foreigner might be difficult, but it most certainly is (next to buying a house) one of two things you would want to do to really immerse yourself in the local culture.

Buying a house

Lithuania’s property market is now improving, amidst healthy economic growth. House prices continue to fall, but at a slower pace. Demand is slightly up. Construction activity is rising again. There are no restrictions to buying property in Lithuania, except for agricultural land. Ensure you are able to understand everything before you sign anything – you may need to employ an interpreter. There are the usual steps in buying property:

  1. The notary orders verification and registration data of immovable property i.e. land. Without this document you cannot execute the sales contract. This usually takes 7 days but you can pay more for a one day delay.
  2. A notary must certify every sale agreement.
  3. An act of transfer acceptance is signed by both parties and notarised. This takes around two days.
  4. Registration of the agreement is recommended, though not mandatory. This takes around ten days – but can be expedited by paying a surcharge.

It takes around 12 days to register a property in Lithuania.

It costs about 2.3% – 4.6% to buy a house. It usually costs more than you expect, so check your finances carefully. Currency rates will affect you – the following web site may save you money: www.smartcurrencyexchange.com

Finding a Job in Lithuania as a Foreigner

The European Free Movement of Workers agreement means you can live and work in Lithuania without a visa or work permit.

Language may be the biggest barrier for many foreign workers. The use of English language is on the increase in business and academia, but a knowledge of Lithuanian is a great advantage (most job adverts are in Lithuanian). Russian and Polish may also be useful. It may be worth trying to learn some Lithuanian before relocating. A good network of contacts in the country will also improve your chances.

In seeking employment, use any contacts you may have. Academic qualifications and language skills are valued, so highlight your fluency in English. They also look for IT competency and business knowledge. www.ldb.lt is the labour exchange site with useful information.
