Videos Translated by LuxCitizenship

In January 2019, RTL and its program De Journal featured a special report on LuxCitizenship and the new American-Luxembourgers who are reclaiming citizenship in Luxembourg.

RTL follows LuxCitizenship Founder Daniel Atz. In the video, he accompanies a new applicant through the citizenship declaration process. Daniel also presents findings from a 2018 LuxCitizenship study (updated as of April 2021) on the new American-Luxembourgers. Watch for a look into what LuxCitizenship involves itself in today.

In May 2020, RTL interviewed LuxCitizenship Founder Daniel Atz on a global campaign to advocate for the extension of the deadline for Article 89 of the Luxembourg Nationality Law.

Due to the Covid-19 global health crisis, many applicants for Luxembourg citizenship risked missing out on citizenship due to the deadline in the original Article 89 of the Luxembourg Nationality Law. LuxCitizenship launched an international video campaign for applicants. They got to explain what Luxembourg means to them and why they hoped to have the deadline extended. In the video, RTL also interview’s Luxembourg Minister of Justice Sam Tanson. For more on this video campaign, see below.

In October 2017, Luxembourg’s national TV channel RTL followed around two new American-Luxembourger dual citizens who had reclaimed citizenship.

RTL wanted to understand “why someone from the world’s strongest country would want to become a citizen of little Luxembourg”. As a result, the report features LuxCitizenship founder Daniel Atz immersing himself in Luxembourg’s culture. He is seen here cooking one of Luxembourg’s national dishes, Bouneschlupp. Above all, LuxCitizenship is happy to present the video for the first time with English subtitles.

When the above report on the new American-Luxembourgers broadcasted in Luxembourg, a long-lost relative that Daniel Atz did not know about saw the special report.

Annette Heinen couldn’t believe her eyes when she saw a 1950’s-era photo of her aunt on TV. She immediately contacted RTL to put the two in touch. RTL followed Daniel on his journey as he came to Luxembourg to meet his long-lost family for the first time. Because of this, an inspirational story of newfound long-distance connection ensued.

We Want to Stay What We Are

In the videos below, check out the 60 current and former applicants to recover Luxembourg citizenship from across the United States and Brazil. They explain why Luxembourg matters to them and why they want to become Luxembourgish citizens. Subsequent to this campaign from May 2020, the Chamber of Deputies in Luxembourg voted for a law that extended the deadline to recover Luxembourg citizenship under Article 89 of the Luxembourg Nationality Law. It extends to December 31, 2021, now.

On March 17, 2021, the Government announced a further extension of the deadline to December 31, 2022, due to ongoing Covid-19 related travel restrictions.
