Is a quarantine required? 

In general, entry to Luxembourg is not conditioned upon absolving a mandatory quarantine. However, until 30 June 2021 included, any person who stayed in India during the 14 days prior to his or her arrival on Luxembourg territory must undergo a COVID-19 test (PCR, TMA or LAMP methods) as soon as possible and inform the medical analysis laboratory about their stay in India. This obligation applies to any person who has stayed in India during the 14 days preceding his/her arrival, regardless of the duration of the stay in India and in Luxembourg, and regardless of the means of transport to the Grand Duchy. If the person arrives in Luxembourg by air, the test will be carried out free of charge at the COVID-19 test centre at Luxembourg airport.

Upon arrival in the Grand Duchy, the persons concerned are placed in strict quarantine for 7 days with the obligation to undergo a second COVID-19 test from the 6th day of quarantine. In the event of refusal to submit to the test on arrival or at the end of the 7-day quarantine period, the quarantine will be extended for a further 7 days, bringing the total duration to 14 days.

Those concerned are required to report their presence to the Health Inspection Department (per e-mail: contact-covid@ms.etat.lu or by telephone: 247-65533), which ensures a reinforced monitoring and tracing.
