UPDATE OCTOBER 18, 2021: THE CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES HAS APPROVED A NEW COVID LAW WHICH GRANTS RECOGNITION OF FOREIGN VACCINE CERTIFICATES EVEN WHEN NOT YET RECOGNIZED BY THE ENTIRE EUROPEAN UNION. THE LAW EXPLICITLY INCLUDES THE VACCINES APPROVED AND IN USE IN THE USA AND BRAZIL. THIS LIKELY MEANS THAT FULLY VACCINATED TRAVELERS FROM THE USA AND BRAZIL WILL BE ABLE TO RE-ENTER LUXEMBOURG IN SHORT ORDER. WE EXPECT UPDATES THIS WEEK. UNTIL THEN, THE EXISTING RULES APPLY.

– THE BELOW RULES ARE CURRENTLY IN EFFECT FOR USA TRAVELERS TO LUXEMBOURG UNTIL OFFICIAL CHANGES ARE ANNOUNCED –

Luxembourg is closed to travelers with their residences in the United States of America starting at 12:00 a.m. September 22nd, 2021.

Due to the dramatic increase of Covid-19 cases across the United States, the US has been removed from Luxembourg’s list of countries whose residents can travel to the country.

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.
