Passports and Identification cards for US, Canadian and Mexican citizens having recovered their Luxembourg citizenship based on ancestry

We congratulate you on your recovery of the Luxembourg citizenship.

In order to submit your first passport and identification card application, we must verify that your registration number has been created in the "Registre National des Personnes Physiques".

Do not book any trip to our Embassy before an appointment can indeed be confirmed by our Consular Agent.

Please send us copy in good quality of the following documents:

  • Your "Lettre de Recouvrement" and its enclosures.
  • The main page of your US/Canadian/Mexican passport.
  • Your US/Canadian driver’s license, or Mexican "Instituto Federal Electoral" card stating your current address.

If married, please provide a copy of the following documents:

  • The marriage certificate.
  • The two main pages of your spouse’s passport.

In case you have children which are still minors, they have automatically acquired the nationality on the very same day that you did recover yours.

Prior to submitting a passport application for you child/children, the following documents are requested to create their registration number:

  • A copy of their birth certificate(s).
  • A copy of the main pages of their passport(s).
  • A notarized statement written and signed by the parents confirming that parents and children do reside at the same address.
  • Copy of both parents' drivers' license reading the current address

We only accept electronic attachments in case the copies are forwarded in a color PDF format and letter size.

We cannot take pictures of document laying on any not neutral background (countertop, table, desk, carpet, etc.) taken with an iPhone or other electronic type of camera. Also we must have the copy of the documents only, at the exclusion of anything else (items, fingers, etc.), which is why it is advised to  send by regular mail classic standard color copy of all requested documents taken with a standard photocopy machine.

Once all documents are verified, the procedure to request your first passport(s) and identification card(s) will be launched and we will invite you to pay the fee. Do not pay unless confirmed!.

The average processing time to this point is over 90 days.

Once the National Registrar is updated and the payments are confirmed, we will invite you to present yourself at the Embassy in order to take your finger prints. You will not book any travel before we actually confirm an appointment.

The Consular section is open Monday to Friday from 10 am to 3.30 pm without interruption.
