Luxembourg is one of the 25 countries who are party to the Schengen agreement. For American citizens, this means that a visa will not be required when traveling for business or tourism for a stay of up to 90 days.
US citizens will only need to present their current passport, valid for at least 3 months beyond the duration of stay in Luxembourg, a return or onward airline ticket, and evidence of sufficient funds.
Those planning to stay longer than 90 days in Luxembourg are advised to apply for a temporary residence permit (autorisation de séjour) before leaving the United States. This kind of permit applies to employees, self-employed individuals, interns, students, research workers or family members and is issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Within 3 weekdays of the traveler’s entry in Luxembourg, they must register their arrival (déclaration d’arrivée) at the town office (administration communale) of their future place of residence. The official residency card (administration communale) must then be requested from the Immigration Directorate of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs within 3 months of entry in Luxembourg.
