There is an exemption in the new rules for some vaccinated individuals from certain countries. THE UNITED STATES VACCINE CARD IS NOT IS NOT AMONG THESE AND NOT ACCEPTED. Vaccine Cards issued in the United States cannot be used to enter Luxembourg.
As of September 22nd, and until further notice, no US residents are allowed to enter Luxembourg without a specific certificate attesting to their right to entry as issued by the Luxembourgish government.
This rule applies whether you are flying from the USA with a connection in another European country before arriving in Luxembourg OR if you already in Europe and fly from another European country to Luxembourg. If they see your American passport, they will ask for proof that you can enter Luxembourg. There are no checks when driving or taking the train into Luxembourg.
We know this is very disappointing but this is now the law.
We believe that this situation may change as soon as in November once the US starts allowing European travelers into the USA. However, this will require the USA to enter into agreement with the EU on mutually recognizing each other’s vaccine certificates. Current press releases from the US Government do not specifically say that is going to happen as part of the new plans. We will have to wait and see.
