VILNIUS – An immunity passport, the so-called "Freedom ID", is coming into force in Lithuania on Monday and will be available to those who have been vaccinated, those who have had the coronavirus or have a negative COVID-19 test, as well as children under 16.

The "Freedom ID" will be available on the www.gpasas.lt website where people will have to confirm their identity and then will be issued a QR code they will be able to save on your phone or computer or print it out. 

Starting from May 24, businesses and representatives of various activities will also be able to check the status of "Freedom IDs" on the website, using a special scanner on the phone’s screen and to scan the QR code provided by the customer.

The "Freedom ID" will allow providing catering services and organizing larger events indoors and outdoors, leisure entertainment, personal celebrations; it will remove restrictions on accommodation establishments and will allow contact work again.

The Economy Ministry estimates that nearly 1.5 million residents will already be able to use the "Freedom ID" without testing in early June.
