Do I need a passport or visa to enter?
Luxembourg is a party to the Schengen Agreement. You may enter Luxembourg for up to 90 days for tourist or business purposes without a visa. Your passport should be valid for at least three months beyond the period of stay. You are required to have sufficient funds and a return airline ticket. For further details about travel into and within Schengen countries, please see our Schengen fact sheet. No immunizations are required.
If you plan to stay longer than three months, you must apply for a temporary-residence permit (“autorisation de séjour”') before entering Luxembourg. This permit, issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, applies to students, employees, self-employed persons, interns, research workers, and family members. If you apply for and receive a permit, it will be mailed to you. You will then have 90 days to enter Luxembourg. You must then register your arrival (“déclaration d'arrivée”) within three weekdays from your date of entry at the town office (“administration communale”) of your future place of residence. You must request your official residency card (“titre de séjour”) from the Immigration Directorate of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs within three months of your arrival.
