Lithuania proposes stricter requirements for third-country nationals and employers

In mid-April 2024, the Lithuanian government approved a draft amendment to the Law on the Legal Status of Foreigners. If the amendment is approved by the parliament, third-country nationals (and their employers) will be subject to stricter work authorization (and sponsorship) requirements. If approved, the draft amendment will also introduce the following changes for third-country nationals: (i) will be able to work for no more than four employers simultaneously; (ii) only those who hold a residence permit will be able to work in Lithuania; and (iii) individuals who apply for temporary residence permits will be subject to a quota of 40,000 per year.
