The President: smooth return of Lithuanian citizens must be ensured even with tougher rules for return

2020-04-02

During a video call, President Gitanas Nausėda and Minister of Foreign Affairs Linas Linkevičius discussed the possibilities for Lithuanian citizens to return home after the Government introduced tougher procedure for return as of April 1. According to the latest data, some 180 citizens expect help from the state to return home. “The repatriation process is coming to an end. After tighter rules for repatriation were introduced, Lithuanian nationals would be provided an exclusive possibility to return to Lithuania during the first days of April using flights, ferries and cars organized by the EU. These are exceptions, and there will be even fewer opportunities to return later,” the President said.
