At the visa centres, visa applicants make a special payment of EUR 20-26, depending on the country. Lithuania's state budget does not incur any costs related to the establishment and activities of visa centres.

Foreign citizens will still be able to apply for Schengen visas at Lithuania's diplomatic representations and consular establishments in those countries.

Currently, Lithuania has 16 and 13 visa centres in Russia and Ukraine respectively.
