Luxembourg's Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs have confirmed the extension of health measures applicable for travel from the United Kingdom (UK) to the Grand Duchy until 15 July 2021 inclusive.
This extension of travel restrictions comes in light of the circulation of seeimingly more transmissable coronavirus variants, particularly the spread of the Delta variant (B.1.617.2).
Anyone over the age of six who has stayed in the UK within the fourteen days preceding their arrival in Luxembourg must undergo a COVID-19 test (PCR, TMA or LAMP) as soon as possible, and must indicate to the medical test laboratory that they stayed in the UK. This obligation applies to anyone who has stayed in the UK in the fourteen days preceding their arrival, regardless of the length of stay in the UK and in Luxembourg, and regardless of their means of transport to reach the Grand Duchy. If the person arrives by aeroplane in Luxembourg, the test will be performed, free of charge, at the COVID-19 test centre at Luxembourg Airport.
As soon as they arrive into the Grand Duchy, those concerned go into strict quarantine for seven days with the obligation to undergo a second test from the sixth day of quarantine. In the event of refusal to submit to the test on arrival or at the end of the seven-day quarantine period, the quarantine will be extended for an additional seven days, for a total period of fourteen days.
Those concerned are required to declare their presence to the Health Inspectorate (by email: email@example.com or by tel: 247-65533) which ensures follow-up and reinforced tracing.
The Health and Foreign Ministries recalled that a specific regime is also in place until 15 July 2021 for all travel from India.
