Luxembourg's Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs have announced that the health measures applicable for travel from the United Kingdom (UK) to the Grand Duchy will not be renewed after Saturday 31 July 2021.
After this date, anyone arriving in Luxembourg after having stayed in the UK within fourteen days of their arrival will no longer be obliged to go into a seven-day quarantine (with a PCR test on day 6) nor will they be required to declare their arrival to the Directorate of Health.
For people travelling to Luxembourg by air from the UK, provisions remain applicable until 14 September 2021. Therefore, any person aged 12 or over must present upon boarding:
- a vaccination certificate attesting to a complete vaccination schedule carried out with a vaccine having obtained a marketing authorisation by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), i.e. AstraZeneca, BioNTech / Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna, certfied by a public or medical authority of a Member State of the European Union (EU) or the Schengen area;
- a recovery certificate drawn up by a doctor or a national authority of an EU or Schengen Member State for people who have suffered a SARS-CoV-2 infection within the six months before their departure and who have completed the isolation period applicable in the respective country and no longer display any symptoms of infection;
- a negative test result, on paper or as an electronic document. PCR, TMA or LAMP tests must have been carried out within 72 hours of the flight departure, whilst rapid antigen tests must be carried out less than 48 hours before the flight, by a medical analysis laboratory or any other body authorised for this purpose. The negative result must be presented, if necessary accompanied by a translation, in one of the administrative languages of Luxembourg or in English, Italian, Spanish or Portuguese.
The respective ministries also recalled that the obligations applicable to all persons wishing to enter Luxembourg by aeroplane are in addition to the temporary restrictions already in place (until 30 September 2021 inclusive) for third-country nationals for non-essential trips to Luxembourg. Note that the UK is not on the list of third countries from which third-country nationals can make non-essential trips to the Grand Duchy.
