Important notice: New CRBA Production Procedure
Citizenship transmission requirements vary according to the date of birth. At present a child born to two American citizen parents abroad automatically acquires U.S. citizenship at birth if one of the parents has resided in the U.S. or its outlying possessions before the birth of the child. A child born to one American citizen parent may acquire U.S. citizenship if the American parent meets the transmission requirement of having resided in the U.S. for at least 5 years, two of which were after attaining the age of 14, prior to the birth of the child.
To register the birth of your child, you should come to the Consular Section. To make an appointment, please click here. The child should be present at the interview.
Documents you should bring with you:
- CRBA application form (please click here)
- the Lithuanian birth certificate
- the parents' marriage certificate (if applicable)
- the parents' passports
- if only one parent is an American citizen: that parent's proof of 5 years presence in the U.S. (tax returns, pay stubs, educational transcripts and diplomas, prior passports showing entries and exits to the United States, etc.)
The fee for this service is $100.
After presenting all the necessary documents, you will receive a Report of Birth Abroad, which will serve as the child's proof of U.S. citizenship.
