The emigrant who came back to live in Lithuania was horrified: I ask myself why he is returning here
The woman who wrote to the media wants to return to live in Lithuania if she wants to share her impressions.
“In other words,” I choose Lithuania. ” In the first days, I am disappointed that the system has come up with a lot, but nothing is fully organized and working, there is no single system, it is not adapted to a person. You have to call yourself, search… The phone is given to “I choose Lithuania” after 5 pm. does not work, after they write, they will respond within 3 days? She wondered.
The woman is clear that she returned to Lithuania on September 16. and declared arrival the next day, paid compulsory health insurance (PSD).
“I have been vaccinated with Pfizer since May. I have a document. When asked how to get a passport, they were told to contact a family friend and the doctor would check the vaccination documents and bring something somewhere. Then I can only register for possible options.
The next day I went to the outpatient clinic and said “you are uninsured” even though the payment was made at my bank. Will go to the clinic again the next day, nothing yet. I call Sodra, they don’t see anything, then register my application as a matter of urgency to the health insurance fund. After a while I get a call that everything is gathered, I can go to look for it, ”she said.
He also added that it seems that it is not difficult to go to the polyclinic, but according to the women, the parking is terrible, all the places are occupied, because there are no places.
“I go to the polyclinic again, I see the contributions there, I am insured, but I declare that because my question is not urgent, it is easy to get there early in 30 days. I cried that I was in a great hurry, I signed up on the 28th!
I think this is just the beginning of the frustrations of the house. I have acquaintances who are thinking about returning to Lithuania to live. What can I advise them? Think well? Of course, no one is waiting for emigrants with a red carpet, but how much precious time is burdened with challenges and others until everything is sorted out, ”the almost former emigrant assured.
“I ask myself, why did I come back here? So agreed, the opinion of another returned person pushes our country down. Only when it is necessary to pay, everything is done very quickly, ”she was outraged.
The woman also spilled on paying for PSD, as she didn’t understand why she had to pay for a full month.
“I returned on September 16, but I have to pay not for the remaining days of that month, but for the full month, although by the 16th. me not even in the country? Isn’t that interesting to anyone? Of course, the amount is small, but the calculation is incorrect.
It is a pity for compatriots who are so pushed by the system and want nothing to change, no one will get lost, even though it is a democratic country, but democracy is still a long way off, oh pity! “She assured.”
Gets a lot of questions about PSD
Jovita Sandaitė, the coordinator of the project “I Choose Lithuania”, comments that Lithuanians turn to their desired one very often and on a wide range of issues.
“We are waiting for over a thousand different inquiries every month, therefore the interest returning to Lithuania remains stable. Returning to our question, we rarely receive passport inquiries about opportunities. However, there are many questions about the state’s requirements for travelers, ie the limits caused by COVID-19 pandemics.
Questions about PSD from our consultants are also common, for example, we received 37 inquiries about PSD in August and 64 in July to apply PSD hearings – how to reliably PSD debt, how to recalculate it, “she commented.
According to J. Sandaitė, people are also often interested in how to pay PSD independently, and different persons with state funds (pension recipients, the Employment Service to register the unemployed, parents raising young children) listen to PSD payments.
“Finally, after receiving inquiries from foreign Lithuanians who are banned in other countries but intend to receive treatment or give birth in Lithuania.
Our helpline (toll-free number) is open on weekdays from 9 am. until 5 p.m. Anyone interested can also contact us any time via Facebook Messenger and through Livechate wants on our website www.renkuosilietuva.lt, we respond to such inquiries no later than within three working days, ”the project coordinator informed.
The first job is to declare a place of residence in Lithuania
Sodra reminds that according to the current procedure, a person can be insured with health insurance only in one of the EU countries, ie in the country where he / she lives, works and pays taxes.
“So, if you have declared your departure from Lithuania and an artificial kit in an EU country in order to pay the taxes set in that country, then you do not need to pay PSD contributions in Lithuania,” said the institution.
He also points out that when he returns from abroad, it is necessary to declare his place of residence in Lithuania, because only then will the health insurance be renewed.
“It simply came to our notice then Electronic power gates portal or by going to the nearest ward. Once you have declared your place of residence in Lithuania, the obligation to pay PSD contributions arises.
PSD contributions can be: paid along with wages if you are employed or on a service basis; paid independently; paid together with other contributions if you work independently; paid for you if you are insured by the state funds. For example, you are a retiree, a full-time student, a student, you are registered with the Employment Service and so on. “
