LT

The two-character ISO 3166 country code for LITHUANIA.

LT

1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for the Republic of Lithuania. This is the code used in international transactions to and from Lithuanian bank accounts.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Lithuania. This is used as an international standard for shipping to Lithuania. Each Lithuanian county has its own code with the prefix "LT." For example, the code for the County of Vilniaus is ISO 3166-2:LT-VL.
