Thanks for your question.
Do you mean that she has a Lithuanian passport?

No Ukrainian passport but Lithuanian Visa that allows her to travel European countries

Hi,
Right. I'm not sure about that. Are you sure she does not have a schengen visa?
What connection does she have to Lithuania?
Kind regards,

Well I don't know about that I will ask her..... So what you are saying is that if she had a schengen visa she could enter UK ?

Expert:  Thomas replied 2 years ago.
Hi
Thanks for your patience.
I'm basically not sure what type of visa she has. Most countries will only permit entry if the government of that country issues a visa. Italy may be different (although I doubt it).
In any event if:-
1. she has a lituhinian visa authorising entry to italy (unlikely)
2. she has an italian visa authorising entry to italy
3. she has a schengen visa
..then neither of these would mean that she would also be allowed to enter the UK on her current visa. She would have to apply for a visa from the home office of the UK government in order to enter the UK.
However, if she has a Lithunian passport or ID card then this would be proof that she is an EEA national (ie. a Lithuanian citizen) and she could use this to enter the UK.
My goal is to provide you with a good service. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up issues specifically relating to your question.
Kind regards,
Tom
