The Welcome to Vilnius workshop is a crash course on life in Vilnius that covers more than just the basics. This helpful workshop is designed for all foreigners who have relocated to Vilnius and serves as a guide to mandatory legal procedures as well as day-to-day life in the city.
- The first part of the workshop is a seminar where you’ll learn about the healthcare system, choosing a home, getting driver’s licenses, possible visa requirements, choosing language courses, understanding the education system better, and registering your company in Lithuania. Feel free to ask any questions or talk about your experience so far.
- The second part of the workshop is a guided tour that will make you feel like a local in just a couple of hours. This is not your regular tourist excursion, either. You’ll get to walk around Vilnius and check out some of the best local spots. The city is known for its enviable work/life balance, so getting acquainted with the leisure side of things is just as important as navigating the bureaucracy, and will definitely help you make the most of your new home town.
- The workshop is also a great chance to meet others who have recently moved to Vilnius, just like you. Don’t hesitate to network and share your experiences. The networking evening is your way of becoming part of the community. And you’ll never walk alone.
- Conveniently located in the heart of Vilnius at the modern Workland co-working space on Gedimino Ave. 20, the workshop is not your regular boring lecture. The friendly atmosphere and experts in their fields will make the most pressing questions on starting a life in a new country easy.
