How important is it to know the local language?

If your Lithuanian skills are not that good, you may encounter some difficulties while trying to establish and develop your business.

New businesses must have a Lithuanian company name; all documents must be completed in Lithuanian; the main language for communication in institutions is Lithuanian; reports, declarations and other accounting documents must be submitted in Lithuanian.

When communicating with customers or business partners, you may experience less difficulties, as the older generation speaks Russian, and young people have a good command of English. So, if you speak one of these languages, you will be able to “survive” without the Lithuanian language in most of the cases.
