  • URGENT MESSAGE TO LUXEMBOURG TOURISTS, STUDENTS, RESIDENTS OF LUXEMBOURG and ALL LUXEMBOURG CITIZENS WHO WISH TO RETURN TO LUXEMBOURG Statement 18/03/20

    The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs in Luxembourg invites all Luxembourg nationals and Luxembourg residents currently abroad as tourists, temporary residents or students to urgently assess the possibilities of returning to Luxembourg.

    The number of countries that have introduced travel restrictions is increasing rapidly and the availability of means of transport is decreasing as a result. This will in effect create a circumstance that a return or repatriation to Europe would no longer be possible.

    The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs in Luxembourg also advises against all non-essential travel abroad.

    Luxembourg nationals who are currently visiting abroad, especially those outside of the Schengen Zone, and who wish to return must contact their travel agency, tour operator or airline as soon as possible.

    The borders are open for Luxembourg Citizens and residents of Luxembourg.

  • Communiqué à destination des ressortissants et résidents du Luxembourg se trouvant actuellement en déplacement à l'étranger Statement 17/03/20

    Le ministère des Affaires étrangères et européennes invite les ressortissants et résidents du Luxembourg se trouvant actuellement en déplacement à l'étranger voire effectuant leurs études à l'étranger à évaluer d'urgence leurs possibilités de retour au Luxembourg.

    En effet, la disponibilité de moyens de transport diminue de plus en plus alors que le nombre de pays introduisant des restrictions de voyage augmente. Dans de telles circonstances, un retour risque de ne plus être faisable à court terme.

    Le ministère recommande dès lors aux ressortissants et résidents du Luxembourg actuellement en déplacement à l'étranger, notamment en dehors de l'espace Schengen, et en fonction de leur situation particulière, de vérifier auprès de leur agence de voyage et/ou compagnie aérienne la disponibilité de vols de retour en Europe et au Luxembourg, et de prendre contact, en cas de besoin, avec l'Ambassade luxembourgeoise accréditée dans le pays en question https://maee.gouvernement.lu/fr/missions-diplomatiques/missions-diplomatiques-et-consulaires-luxembourgeoises.html voire avec le ministère des Affaires étrangères et européennes https://maee.gouvernement.lu/fr/directions-du-ministere/affaires-consulaires.html .

    Les frontières sont ouvertes pour les ressortissants et résidents du Luxembourg de retour à leur domicile au Luxembourg.
