Recognition of diplomas
You can apply for the recognition of qualifications personally, through a proxy or send by registered mail.
For the recognition of your diploma, you must submit the following documents to the Centre for Quality Assessment In Higher Education (SKVC):
- Application form (http://www.skvc.lt/default/en/60/apply/documentation_requirements) diplomas that show the education you want to recognize in Lithuania. If the educational qualifications are not in English or Russian, translations of these documents into Lithuanian are necessary,
- a notarized copy of the ID document;
- if your name or surname changed, i.e. your name and surname in your ID document are different from the documents in the educational qualifications, you will have to submit a document proving the change of name (marriage or divorce certificate, etc.).

If you want to recognize the qualification of a health professional in Lithuania, you will not only need to receive recognition of SKVC. SKVC will inform you if you need additional learning / course hours to be able to approve the license. Once you have an answer from SKVC, contact the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Lithuania (http://sam.lrv.lt/), which makes the final decision on the issue of a medical license. It is important to know that to be able to work, you will need to pass the official language (Lithuanian) category II exam (equivalent to level B1-B2).
