Lithuania Travel Health Advice
Travellers intending to visit forest areas for lengthy periods should take the necessary precautions against tick-borne encephalitis. Doctors may also advise vaccinations against hepatitis A and hepatitis B. EU citizens are entitled to emergency medical treatment if they have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) from their country of origin. After Brexit, the Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) replaced the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) for UK citizens. The GHIC allows UK citizens access to state healthcare during visits to the EU. The GHIC is not valid in Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland, nor is it an alternative to travel insurance. Medical facilities are fair and there are plenty of doctors, but equipment and resources are lacking in some areas. There are a few private clinics of high standard. Doctors and hospitals usually expect immediate cash payment for services, so travel medical insurance is highly recommended.
