Whether your company is sending employees into Luxembourg or expanding outside of Luxembourg to destinations around the world—Fragomen is here to help. Our dedicated team based in our Brussels office will partner with you to develop immigration strategies that help you meet inbound immigration needs and manage your regional or global immigration program.

The economy drives the immigration policy in Luxembourg, and the government has implemented streamlined immigration measures to attract and respond to the needs of foreign workers.

Business visitors to Luxembourg typically use a local version of the Schengen-C Visa, which most foreign nationals are required to obtain prior to arrival in Luxembourg.  Schengen visas are generally valid for up to 90 days within a 180-day period.

The main work authorization categories are the EU Blue Card – for highly skilled personnel that enter on local contract; the Intracompany Transfer Work Permit – for skilled staff temporarily transferred within a company group; and the Local Hire Work Permit – for skilled staff that enters on local contract for a vacancy where no local qualified staff is available. Work permits are issued for a maximum validity of one year and may be renewed annually, as long as the requisite conditions continue to be met. Luxembourg also offers work authorization exemptions for European Economic Area/EU nationals, and for foreign nationals on temporary assignment within a company group for 90 days or less per calendar year.

Note that intracompany transferees are not eligible to apply for permanent residence.
