Job - one of the main reasons for immigration to Lithuania. In recent years, the entry procedures have been simplified. For example, in 2011 entry rules were changed to allow all migrant workers to come with the national (D) visa, so now they can come having a work permit. Residence permit they can get already being in Lithuania. Before the entry into force of these amendments, under the simplified procedure could only enter the foreigners who have professions that are lacking in Lithuania. EU directives have been transposed by simplifying entry procedures for certain groups of third-country nationals (for example, students, scholars and high-skilled workers). For example, for high-skilled workers has been simplified procedure for family reunification, so university professors and business owners can come together with their family members at once. Previously, they were allowed to bring their family after 2 years residence in Lithuania.
