Bringing pets to Ltihuania

The State Food and Veterinary Service has facilitated the entry of pets. Ukrainians whose pets are properly marked, vaccinated, have a valid animal passport, and meet all the requirements for the entry of pets into the EU will follow the usual procedure for crossing the border. Animals coming from Ukraine that are not micro-chipped or have not been vaccinated against rabies will be micro-chipped and vaccinated, and therefore subjected to simpler quarantine conditions.

The State Food and Veterinary Service notes that the recent changes regarding the entry of pets into the EU apply exclusively to Ukrainian natural persons and not to legal entities such as sellers or breeders - the arrangements for the commercial entry of pets into the EU remain unchanged.

I want to use vehicle registered in Ukraine in the territory of Lithuania. How should I do that properly and what is worth to know?
Compulsory motor third party liability insurance is mandatory in order to use a vehicle in Lithuania. Proper insurance documents are the ones where it is indicated that they are valid and provide insurance coverage in the territory of Lithuania (e.g. Ukrainian Green Cards, Polish or Lithuanian Frontier insurance policies). If you want to insure a vehicle that is registered in Ukraine you can do that remotely in these Ukrainian insurance companies or you should contact any insurer in Lithuania which provides compulsory motor third party liability insurance documents.
As all vehicles must be insured in Lithuania – it is prohibited to use a vehicle which has no compulsory motor third party liability insurance. Nevertheless, participating in the road traffic with an uninsured vehicle can cause administrative liability.
More valuable information and recommendations in English language can be found on the official website of Motor Insurers‘ Bureau of the Republic of Lithuania: “Information for Ukrainian drivers“.


The Lithuanian authorities provide and will continue to provide all possible assistance and support to Ukraine - its fearless soldiers and brave people.
