Do I need to hire a translator?
All civil records in Luxembourg must be written in or translated to French or German. We have court-certified translators on staff to ensure an accepted translation.
Do I have to go to Luxembourg in person?
Yes. To complete Phase 2 and recover citizenship, you must appear in person before the Civil Registry in Luxembourg City or another commune of Luxembourg. Your minor child does not need to appear with you.
The in-person meeting is straightforward and can be carried out in English.
If you are acquiring Luxembourg Citizenship through Article 7 you do not need to appear in person.
What are the implications of Dual Citizenship?
Neither the United States of America nor the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg forbid dual citizenship. The Embassy of Luxembourg in Washington, D.C. encourages all interested applicants to inform themselves about the implications of dual citizenship. U.S. applicants should contact the State Department for any serious questions.
LuxCitizenship only provides applicants with process information concerning applying for Luxembourg dual citizenship. LuxCitizenship does not provide legal advice.
Will I owe any taxes to Luxembourg?
Only individuals with some form of Luxembourg source income, such as that from inheritance, real estate, rental income, or business/employment income in Luxembourg, owe Luxembourg taxes.
LuxCitizenship can direct individuals with Luxembourg source income to the competent Luxembourg-based institutions for more information.
