Entry Visa Information

Applicants from non-EU / EEA countries are required to obtain a national multi-entry D Type visa for studies from the nearest Lithuanian Embassy or Consulate of their home country. After the first instalment of the tuition fee payment is received in the VMU bank account, the applicant is provided with a mediation letter in order to obtain the entry visa. VMU will mediate for the applicant to obtain said entry visa with the Lithuanian Embassy and Consulate. Please check the list of Lithuanian Embassies and Consulates. The mediation letter, issued in the Lithuanian language, confirms the applicant is accepted to VMU (study programme: Sports Business MBA by EB Institute, payment of tuition fee and period of the first study year are indicated). If the applicant is coming from a foreign country where Lithuania does not have a representative Embassy or Consulate, the applicant must verify where a Lithuanian Embassy or Consulate is located and if it provides national multi-entry D type visa for studies for citizens of the applicant’s home country. VMU also provides applicants with a confirmation letter, issued in English, for the Intermediate Embassy or Consulate.

Register for an Appointment at the Lithuanian Embassy or Consulate

After obtaining the original acceptance, confirmation and mediation letters from VMU, the applicant is requested to register for a personal appointment at the Lithuanian Embassy or Consulate. Please be informed of and prepare the documents required by the Lithuanian Embassy or Consulate in order to apply for and obtain a national multi-entry D type visa for studies. Usually, the decision on the issue of an entry visa is made within 10-14 days after the receipt of an application. However, sometimes it takes longer depending on the specific country the applicant comes from.

Note: Students who have a national multi-entry D type visa for studies must arrive in Lithuania first. If your flight is not direct to your final destination, you cannot leave the airport as you will not be allowed to continue your trip to Lithuania.
