INFORMATION FOR PEOPLE FLEEING THE WAR IN UKRAINE

The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs wishes to inform that procedures are being set up to welcome and assist displaced persons coming from Ukraine, including those that have already arrived in Luxembourg.

Every displaced person coming from Ukraine and arriving in Luxembourg is kindly asked to make their presence known by contacting the Directorate of Immigration of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs through the following email address: immigration.desk@mae.etat.lu

The people in question will then receive a form, which they will need to fill out, in order to help the Luxembourgish authorities to contact them with a view to introduce their temporary protection request or to regularise their stay in Luxembourg in a different manner.

The temporary protection status, which is about to be agreed upon at the European level, will be available for Ukraine nationals who arrived in Luxembourg in the past few days and for those who might arrive in the future. They will be informed in due time about the implementation of the procedure.

In the meantime, Ukraine nationals do not need to follow any specific procedures to regularise their stay. This also includes people who have a residence permit which is about to expire or whose short-term stay (usually of 90 days) is coming to an end, who are also asked to declare themselves to the Directorate of Immigration. At this point in time, they do not need to worry about their administrative situation.

The government has created a center for an initial reception in order to host persons fleeing the war in Ukraine. This emergency reception center, accessible 24/7, is situated at the SHUK (Structure d’hébergement d’urgence au Kirchberg), 11 rue Carlo Hemmer in Luxembourg-City. The center will provide shelter during the first couple of days, as well as food and items of primary necessity, for people wishing to request a temporary protection in Luxembourg, but also for those wishing to join another European country. For sanitary reasons, the center will not be able to host pets.

The Ministry would like to reiterate that the sanitary measures related to COVID-19 are in place.

 

The European Migration Network Luxembourg (EMN) has published a website dedicated to Ukrainian nationals with the latest up-to-date information in English, Ukrainian and Russian on procedures for asylum requests and temporary protection status.

The information links provide useful legal information for Ukrainian nationals and students residing in Luxembourg to regularise their stay. For those who are coming to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, this website provides contact details and legal information on how to ask for temporary or international protection. 

 

 

 

CURRENT INFORMATION: COVID-19

USEFUL SOURCES RELATED TO CORONAVIRUS IN LUXEMBOURG

Luxembourgish authorities have taken strict measures to limit the spread of the virus in the country and launched a dedicated website. It contains a.o. information about the evolution of the crisis at national level, the contact points to turn to, the aid programmes that have been set up and the behaviour to adopt in order to limit the spread of the virus. This website (in 4 languages) and other sources of information are made available for you on the right side.

As of 11 March 2022, the majority of the health measures in relation to COVID-19 are revoked in Luxembourg. As a result, the following areas are no longer subject to specific rules:

  • Catering (restaurants/bars etc)

  • Trade

  • Sports

  • Culture

  • Education

 

Public transport

Wearing a mask is compulsory at all times in public transport, with the exception of the driver if a distance of two metres can be respected, or if a partition separates him from the passengers.

 

Hospitals, elderly homes and other care facilities

The wearing of masks is compulsory in hospitals, elderly homes and other care facilities.

 

Nevertheless its essential to continue to respect the protective measures.  

For more details please consult the webpage "Sanitary Measures" by the Luxembourgish government. 

Due to the pandemic, third-country nationals may no longer enter the territory of the Grand Duchy, except in one of the cases mentioned on the dedicated webpage.

New health measures for all air travel to Luxembourg:

For any person, aged 12 years or older, authorised to enter Luxembourg (regardless of nationality), it is compulsory to present, before boarding a flight to Luxembourg:

  • either a vaccination certificate attesting to a complete vaccination pattern (see FAQ) against COVID-19, drawn up in accordance with Article 3bis, paragraphs 1 to 2, of the amended law of 17 July 2020 on measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Namely a vaccination certificate issued by the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, a Member State of the European Union or the Schengen Area. Certificates issued by certain third countries are also accepted. (see respective list)

  • or a recovery certificate issued by a practitioner or national authority of an EU Member State or Schengen Area Member State for persons who have had a recent SARS-CoV-2 infection within 6 months prior to travel and who have completed the applicable isolation period in the respective country with resolution of all symptoms of infection

  • or the negative result (on paper or electronically) of a nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA (PCR, TMA or LAMP methods) carried out less than 72 hours before the flight or of a SARS-CoV-2 rapid antigen test carried out less than 48 hours before the flight, by a medical analysis laboratory or any other entity authorised for this purpose. The negative result of the test must be presented, if necessary accompanied by a translation, in one of the administrative languages of Luxembourg or in English, Italian, Spanish or Portuguese

This applies to all departures to Luxembourg, including those from Member States of the European Union or the Schengen area.

Possible exemptions from these obligations as well as more information under this link.

The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs wishes to inform that the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has acted on the recent decision amending the Council Recommendation (EU) 2020/912 on the temporary restriction on non-essential travel into the EU and the possible lifting of such restriction. Thus, the list of third countries whose residents are not affected by a temporary restriction at the external borders on non-essential travel to the Grand Duchy has therefore been updated, removing, with effect from 31 January 2022, Argentina, Australia and Canada from the list.

Third country citizens with residence in Argentina, Australia or Canada will no longer be allowed to enter the territory of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg for non-essential travel as of 31 January 2022.  

Proof of residence is the responsibility of the third-country national.

The updated list of third-countries whose residents are authorised to enter the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, including for non-essential travel, as well as detailed information can be found here

In Luxembourg, the main public research actors have joined forces to launch projects intended to fight COVID-19. Find here an overview of the research carried out by the COVID-19 TASK FORCE under the coordination of the RESEARCH LUXEMBOURG initiative.
