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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
MEET OUR RESEARCHERS
“I found my current research position on Euraxess job portal and I would recommend Euraxess without a doubt to anyone at any given point of time. Euraxess website is a place to go if anyone is looking for academic and research positions, or anything related to career counseling etc. I still need to explore more Euraxess funding opportunities.”
Felipe LINHARES's experience
“Euraxess had an important role since the beginning. First, I saw the advertisement for the position on Euraxess website. And after the position was offered to me, Euraxess Luxembourg continued to assist me to settle down in the country, looking for a place to live, and with bank procedures.”
Pranjul SHAH's experience
“From the beginning, Euraxess was very helpful in simplifying the administrative process for me and this simplified the uncertainties linked to moving to a new country. Luxembourg can be a bit administratively heavy country at the start and Euraxess does the perfect job in minimizing this burden for the researchers so that they can focus on their research.”
Pauline BOURGEON's experience
“Over the last three years, I have been using Euraxess portal to look for a job in Luxembourg or in the Great Region (Belgium, France, Germany). I was regularly checking the vacancies in my research field posted on the portal and I found very practical to be able to select several countries. It is very convenient to have such a portal where many career opportunities in Europe are gathered.”
