Full Restrictions:


All travellers

UK nationals are now permitted to enter Luxembourg for non-essential purposes. All travellers arriving by air must complete a passenger locator form while on the plane. Further details can be found on the Luxembourg government’s website.

If you’re fully vaccinated

If you’re fully vaccinated, you can enter Luxembourg without needing to test or quarantine.

You will be required to show proof of vaccination and will need to complete a passenger locator form before arrival.

Find out if you qualify as fully vaccinated in Luxembourg on the Luxembourg government website.

Proof of vaccination status

If arriving by air, you must present proof that you have been fully vaccinated to enter Luxembourg.

Luxembourg will accept the UK’s proof of COVID-19 recovery and vaccination record and proof of COVID-19 vaccination issued in the Crown Dependencies. However a screenshot or a photo is not sufficient. Your final vaccine dose must have been administered a least 14 days prior to travel. Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.

If you are arriving by land, you are not required to present a vaccination certificate, recovery certificate or a negative test. Full details are available on the Luxembourg government website.

If you’re not fully vaccinated

If you’re not fully vaccinated and are arriving by air, you’ll need to show proof of a negative PCR test (taken no more than 48 hours before entry) or rapid lateral flow test (taken no more than 24 hours before entry) when entering Luxembourg. See information on getting a test before entry.

If you’ve had COVID-19 in the past year

If you’re not fully vaccinated but have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last year you can enter Luxembourg. You will need to show proof of recovery.

You can use the UK’s proof of COVID-19 recovery record to demonstrate proof of COVID-19 recovery when entering Luxembourg.

If you are arriving by land, you are not required to present a vaccination certificate, recovery certificate or a negative test. Full details are available on the Luxembourg government website.

Children and young people

Children aged 12 years and 2 months or older are subject to the requirements to show proof of vaccination, proof of recovery or proof of a recent negative test.

If you’re transiting through Luxembourg

There are no specific rules regarding transiting through Luxembourg. You should observe the same rules as for travellers visiting Luxembourg.


You should check the Luxembourg government website for the latest information on exemptions to rules.

Check your passport and travel documents before you travel

Passport validity

If you are planning to travel to an EU country (except Ireland), or Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino or Vatican City, you must follow the Schengen area passport requirements.

Your passport must be:

  • Issued less than 10 years before the date you enter the country (check the ‘date of issue’)
  • valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the ‘expiry date’)

You must check your passport meets these requirements before you travel. If your passport was issued before 1 October 2018, extra months may have been added to its expiry date.

Contact the embassy of the country you are visiting if you think that your passport does not meet both these requirements. Renew your passport if you need to.


You can travel to countries in the Schengen area for up to 90 days in any 180-day period without a visa. This applies if you travel as a tourist, to visit family or friends, to attend business meetings, cultural or sports events, or for short-term studies or training.

If you are travelling to Luxembourg and other Schengen countries without a visa, make sure your whole visit is within the 90-day limit. Visits to Schengen countries within the previous 180 days before you travel count towards your 90 days.

To stay longer, to work or study, for business travel or for other reasons, you will need to meet the Luxembourg government’s entry requirements. Check with the Luxembourg Embassy what type of visa and/or work permit you may need.

If you are travelling to Luxembourg for work, read the guidance on visas and permits.

If you stay in Luxembourg with a residence permit or long-stay visa, this does not count towards your 90-day visa-free limit.

Passport stamping

Check your passport is stamped if you enter or exit the Schengen area through Luxembourg as a visitor. Border guards will use passport stamps to check you’re complying with the 90-day visa-free limit for short stays in the Schengen area. If relevant entry or exit stamps are not in your passport, border guards will presume that you have overstayed your visa-free limit.

You can show evidence of when and where you entered or exited the Schengen area, and ask the border guards to add this date and location in your passport. Examples of acceptable evidence include boarding passes and tickets.

You may also need to:

  • show a return or onward ticket
  • show you have enough money for your stay

If you are resident in Luxembourg, read our Living in Luxembourg guide for passport stamping information.
