Labas everybody! This is Jack, and I’m Raminta, and you’re listening to Lithuanian Out Loud, the world’s first Lithuanian language lessons in a podcast series!
In 1990 after Lithuania reestablished its independence, the Lithuanian Seimas or parliament enacted the “Lithuanian Nationality Law."
1-Complete a residency period
But according to the Lithuanian Nationality Law there’s a third way to become a citizen - if you’re a descendant of a member of the Lithuanian diaspora.
už jus! to you!
Now let’s toast Lithuania. Well, why not?
už Lietuvą! for Lithuania!
Of course we can toast other nations as well…
už Australią! for Australia!
Great! Now let’s toast our friend across the table…
už Džiaką! for Jack!
Labas Jack & Raminta! Does Lithuania allow dual citizenship? Both my husband and I are of Lithuanian descent and might someday consider moving to Lithuania and becoming citizens, but we wouldn\'t necessarily want to give up our US citizenship to do so. We are each only half Lithuanian, so I\'m not sure we\'d qualify anyway. But it certainly is an intriguing idea!
