Luxembourg allows unrestricted entry for residents of the United States

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has amended the list of third countries whose residents are not affected by a temporary restriction at the external borders on non-essential travel.

Consequently, as of 28 June 2021, third-country nationals residing in the United States of America are again allowed to enter the territory of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

It is recalled that, any person aged 6 years or above, wishing to travel by air to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is required to present, before boarding a flight to Luxembourg:

  • either a vaccination certificate attesting to a complete vaccination pattern (see FAQ) carried out with a vaccine that has been authorised for use by the European Medicines Agency, i.e. the vaccines of the companies AstraZeneca, BioNTech/Pfizer, Johnson&Johnson and Moderna, issued by a public or medical authority of a Member State of the European Union or of a Member State of the Schengen Area
  • or a recovery certificate issued by a practitioner or national authority of an EU Member State or Schengen Area Member State for persons who have had a recent SARS-CoV-2 infection within 6 months prior to travel and who have completed the applicable isolation period in the respective country with resolution of all symptoms of infection
  • or the negative result (on paper or electronically) of a nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA (PCR, TMA or LAMP methods) carried out less than 72 hours before the flight or of a SARS-CoV-2 rapid antigen test carried out less than 48 hours before the flight, by a medical analysis laboratory or any other entity authorised for this purpose. The negative result of the test must be presented, if necessary accompanied by a translation, in one of the administrative languages of Luxembourg or in English, Italian, Spanish or Portuguese.
