Bharti AXA TRAVEL INSURANCE Lithuania Visa Guide Acquiring a Lithuania Visa Overview Lithuania is considered to be a cold country, not because of the people who are very warm and gracious, but due to the temperature of the nation.

It is a relatively large number for a country so small in size. Additional visitors to the nation include medical tourists as well. The medical service sector of Lithuania is considered to be one of the cheapest in Europe. Why is Lithuanian Visa Needed?
