Luxembourg Citizenship Guidance – FOR ARTICLE 89 APPLICANTS ONLY
This section only applies to individuals who applied before December 31, 2018.
On March 17, 2021, Luxembourg’s government confirmed that a law will be approved to extend the Article 89 deadline to December 31, 2022, due to ongoing Covid-19 related travel restrictions. Although the law has not been voted on in the Chamber of Deputies yet, the Government has already confirmed to the national media that this will happen. You are safe to operate as if this is already the policy.
Covid-19 Impacts on Applying in Person
We have received questions about whether Luxembourg will allow applicants to submit documentation by mail or electronically. We have also received questions about whether it will be possible to apply for citizenship in the United States. There will be no changes to the in-person application requirement in Luxembourg.
