Luxembourg's Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs has announced exemptions from the temporary travel restrictions to the Grand Duchy in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
From now on, short-stay visits by family members of EU citizens will be exempt from travel restrictions to Luxembourg. The following individuals are considered family members in this context: spouse or registered partner; and the direct descendant of the EU citizen or his / her spouse / registered partner, if the former is under 21 years old.
Short-stay visits by a family member of a third-country national resident in Luxembourg will also be exempt from travel restrictions to Luxembourg. Family members include: spouse or registered partner; the direct descendant of the Luxembourg resident who is a third-country national or of his / her spouse / registered partner, if the child is under 18 years of age.
Likewise, short-stay visits by persons whose life partner resides in Luxembourg will be exempt from travel restrictions aimed at third-country nationals. Those concerned will have to, on the one hand, subscribe to a support commitment with the Passport, Visa and Legalisation Office and, on the other hand, provide proof of the existence of a long-term relationship and regular contacts. The evidence must attest to common activities which may take the form of: entry / exit stamps affixed to the passport; plane tickets / boarding passes; proof of joint residence abroad.
Authorisation to enter Luxembourg will be subject to the usual conditions applicable in the context of short-stay visits.
For the categories of persons concerned, an express request should be sent by email to the Passport, Visa and Legalisation Office via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, in order to obtain a specific certificate. For any further information, contact the office by the above email address or via tel.: 247-88300.
Temporary entry restrictions for third-country nationals on the territory of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg remain in place until 31 December 2020.
