Using public transport systems for a temporary means of getting around meets your requirement, but if you have your own car, you can go whenever and wherever you please.
If you want to import your own vehicle to Lithuania, you may need to follow a few rules and regulations set forth for shipping to port. You will also need to provide the Lithuania Custom Department with the correct information before proceeding.
You will first want to gather up the necessary paperwork and then fill it out before sending it all in. You will be required to pay all transport fees at the time of shipment in order to prevent delays. The weather should also be a factor in when you ship. The weather in Lithuania can vary from rainy cool summers to harsh cold freezing temperatures. The skies are often filled with rain and clouds which can affect the shipping conditions as well. You may want to keep this in mind in case you need your car by a certain date.

- Residence permits.
- Your current passport.
- Title of the vehicle.
- Proof of ownership.
- Vehicle registration.

If you don’t know much about shipping rules and regulations in Alytus in Lithuania, you can refer to Title 19 of US Federal Regulations Code.
If you have any parts that could possibly come off during transport, you will need to remove them before the car is shipped. You will also need to clean out the inside of your vehicle if you choose the RORO method of shipping. Your vehicle will need to be steam cleaned inside before your vehicle leaves the port to avoid quarantine at the Lithuanian port instead. If you want to speed up the delivery, you will need to follow the rules of the shipping company first. Once your vehicle arrives at port, you will need to show ownership and claim it. You can sign the Power of Attorney and give it to us so that one of our representatives will be there to complete the legal formalities.
You will need to consider how you plan to ship your vehicle. Currently, there are two methods; the Roll On/ Roll Off method and the Container Shipping method. If you choose container shipping, you will need to drive your car down to the port where it can be loaded into either a 20 foot or 40 foot container. You will also be able to place your personal belongings in, with the car inside the container. This method of shipping is very expensive. If you choose the Roll On/Roll Off method, you will drive your car up onto the ramps provided by the ship. It is then strapped down on the deck for the transit. You can only have a quarter of a tank of gas, car keys, car jack, and a spare tire in the vehicle during transport.
After the vehicle arrival.
Once you arrive at the port, you will need to follow the proper procedure for picking up your vehicle. You will need to pay the right amount of customs duty and all taxes and other shipping fees associated with your import. You will need to apply for registration and get the license plates. You will also need to familiarize yourself with the driving laws in Lithuania before you begin driving there.
