To date, thousands of people across the Americas have recovered Luxembourg nationality through their ancestors.
This community is descended from brave Luxembourgers who set out to the Americas in generations passed. Now, their descendants have the beautiful opportunity to be a part of the Nation their ancestors came from. For these people, Luxembourg has already become a part of their futures
After several months of uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 global pandemic and its impact on travel, the Chamber of Deputies in Luxembourg has approved a law to extend the deadline for Article 89 of the Nationality Law.
This means that for anyone that was previously subject to the December 31, 2020 deadline to travel to Luxembourg, they now have an extra year to travel to Luxembourg and reclaim citizenship. The new deadline is December 31, 2021. This deadline change only applies to individuals on the two-step path to citizenship with a deadline, all other paths to citizenship do not have a deadline.
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.
