Lithuania has been a member of WTO since 2001. As a result of the WTO entry Lithuanians decreased gasoline import duties from 15% to 10%, what drove gasoline prices and general consumer prices down. Lithuania also had to cancel sugar excise tax and reduce sugar import tariffs, what led to decrease in consumer prices for sugar and most sugar containing products. Reduced bureaucracy and market access can be illustrated by significantly reduced stamp duties and licensing requirements for import and wholesale of alcohol, oil products and certain financial services.

The following documents must be provided for customs inspection of the imported goods: commercial invoice, an import license or permit; documents confirming the origin, quality certificates, transportation documents, packaging inventory, documents certifying that import duties or taxes have been paid.

Free Trade Zone

In 1995 Lithuanian Parliament voted in agreement of the Law on the Fundamentals of Free Economic Zones. Nowadays Lithuania has three free trade zones, in Siauliai, Klaipeda and Kaunas. The largest airport in the Baltic States is located in Siauliai, Kaunas is an air, road, and rail hub, and Klaipeda is the largest port.
