The Parliament of Lithuania adopted amendments to the Law on Passport on Thursday, allowing an entry about ethnicity in a passport, if the holder submits a written application.
Fifty-six members of Parliament voted for the amendments, 11 voted against, 24 abstained.
Changes to the law initiated by MP Mečislovas Zasčiurinskas will take effect on 1 January 2015. Passports issued before this date will not be subject to this regulation.
