Strengthening of Consular Service Will Contribute to the Development of Business, Tourism and Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries


2006.08.24

The Government has approved the Programme for the Consular Development of the Republic of Lithuania for 2006-2008. The programme aims at ensuring the provision of effective and qualified consular assistance to citizens of the Republic of Lithuania, at facilitating the development of the tourism, business and cultural relations between Lithuania and foreign states, and performing consular functions in accordance with the requirements of the EU and Schengen acquis.

 The programme pays attention to an increased need for consular services in EU countries where the majority of Lithuanian migrants have moved. With the view of improving the quality of services provided to the citizens, the consular service in EU countries will be improved.

The consular service will also be strengthened in Eastern European counties where most visas are issued. This will create more favourable conditions for the development of the tourism, business and cultural relations between Lithuania and foreign countries.

After the programme is implemented, the network of the Lithuanian consular representation will expand to Australia, Brazil, India and the city of Los Angeles (the USA).

The scheme of prompt consular response to crises will be established and the consular cooperation in assisting during crises between Lithuania and other EU countries will be improved.

Besides, the preparation for acceding Schengen treaties will be improved and better conditions for appropriate accession to the Schengen system will be created.

Finally, an effective procedure for the training of consular officers will be established and regulated, which will contribute to a better quality of services provided to Lithuanian citizens and foreigners.
