Schengen area is an area comprising 26 European states that have officially abolished all passports and all other types of border control at their mutual borders. However, it does not mean you do not need to have documents with you. When traveling always have your passport with visa D or TRP card with you. Make sure your documents are valid and check the dates to make sure they are still valid when returning to Lithuania.
WORKING WITH TRP/VISA OUTSIDE OF LITHUANIA
Your TRP card or Visa D DOES NOT give you permission to WORK outside Lithuania; TRP card allows you to work full time just in Lithuania during the summer period;
TRP card or Visa D allows you JUST to TRAVEL outside Lithuania in the Schengen Zone countries for 90 days within a period of 180 days (days are counted backward. If you overstay and you get checked at the border, you can get a fine, your migration documents may be canceled and you even can get a ban for 5 years to apply for any Visa to enter the Schengen zone. Keep your traveling information (tickets, boarding passes) as proof of your traveling dates. Beware some employers will tell you that you can work 4 months and no one is checking, however, this is the risk you assume yourself if you decide to violate the law.

under a Schengen short-stay visa/TRP.
If you have:
- visa D – your health insurance is valid in all Schengen countries
- TRP – your health insurance is valid only in Lithuania
Plan to purchase additional travel insurance while traveling with TRP because in the case of a medical emergency or sickness, you will not be covered.
