On 26 June 2014, the Republic of Lithuania Law on the Legal Status of Aliens was revised with amendments. The purpose of these amendments is to get rid of bureaucratic barriers that hinder the employment of foreign specialists of high professional qualification in Lithuania. At the same time, the amendments seek to limit the establishment of fictitious companies that are set up with the aim of obtaining permits to temporarily reside in the country.
