Yes, you can use a Lithuanian ID-card to register your Smart-ID account. If your ID-card works with other e-services such as accessing and using your online bank account then you should find it will work with Smart-ID.

  • ID-card: when was your ID-card issued?
    You can only use ID-cards that were issued after 4th of July 2012 for Smart-ID registration.
    If your ID card was issued before July 4th 2012, it only supports the SHA-1 signature, a standard which is no longer considered secure and therefore can NOT be used for identification.
