Luxembourg Immigration Services

​• Luxembourg's immigration system provides several options for employers of foreign nationals. Luxembourg is a member of the European Union (EU) and the Schengen Area. Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility and benefits for accompanying family members vary by permit type.
• Business visitors to Luxembourg typically travel with a Schengen C Visa, unless they are visa exempt based on their nationality. The Schengen Area rules limit stays for visitors in the Schengen Area (including Luxembourg) to 90 days in a 180-day period. For stays exceeding 90 days, a residence permit is required.
• The main work authorization categories are the EU Intra-company Transferee Permit, for intracompany transfers of qualified managers, specialists, and trainees from outside the European Union (EU); the EU Blue Card, for highly skilled personnel employed in Luxembourg on a local contract; and the Work Permit for Salaried Workers, for skilled staff on a local contract for positions where no local qualified staff is available. The initial permit validity differs among work permit types and may generally be renewed provided the permit conditions continue to be met. Luxembourg also offers certain work permit exemptions, depending on the activities performed during the visit.
• EU, European Economic Area (EEA), and Swiss nationals staying on a home contract must comply with Posted Worker requirements.​
