Luxembourg ETIAS Travel Authorization: Join the waitlist

Last updated: September 2023

A notable change in 2024 awaits non-EU travelers from visa-exempt countries aiming for Luxembourg.

If visions of wandering Luxembourg's enchanting old towns or experiencing the majesty of the grand Bock Casemates are in your plans, there's a new preparation step you’ll need to keep in mind. Instead of the previous visa-free privilege, those from non-EU visa-exempt nations will require an ETIAS authorization to fully embrace Luxembourg and the broader Schengen Area.

Let’s turn our attention to the Luxembourg ETIAS. Here's a summary of the application process, eligibility criteria, and the potential costs involved.

What is the Luxembourg ETIAS?

In 2016, a suggestion arose for a system that would provide enhanced security for travel to Europe and the Schengen Area. This initiative materialized into what we now identify as the European Travel Information and Authorisation System, or ETIAS. Set to launch in 2024, this electronic travel authorization is designed for those travelers who, in previous times, could easily step foot in Europe without a visa.

Previously, a mere passport or similar travel document was enough for these visitors. However, this approach provided European authorities with limited data on such visa-free tourists. Addressing this, the ETIAS system aims to present a broader, more detailed view of incoming travelers.

Given Luxembourg's position within the Schengen Area, it's essential for visa-exempt travelers to secure a Luxembourg ETIAS before they make their journey to this charming nation.

Apply now for the Luxembourg ETIAS with us!

What can I do in Luxembourg with an ETIAS travel authorization?

The ETIAS is your go-to option for traveling to Luxembourg and the entire Schengen Area if your agenda includes:

  • Leisure and tourism

  • Business activities such as attending conferences or meetings

  • Pursuing short-term studies up to a duration of 3 months

  • Undergoing medical treatment

What can I not do with the Luxembourg ETIAS?

With a Luxembourg ETIAS, there are a few things you can't do. These include:

  • Engage in studies that extend beyond 3 months

  • Take up employment opportunities

  • Establish permanent residence in Luxembourg

Who can apply for the Luxembourg ETIAS?

The introduction of the Luxembourg ETIAS primarily targets nationals from countries that benefit from visa-free access to Europe and the Schengen Zone.

Several European nations, while not demanding a visa, do necessitate that travelers possess the ETIAS travel authorization. They include:

Austria Germany Netherlands
Belgium Greece Norway
Bulgaria Hungary Poland
Croatia Iceland Portugal
Cyprus Italy Romania
Czech Republic Latvia Slovakia
Denmark Liechtenstein Slovenia
Estonia Lithuania Spain
Finland Luxembourg Sweden
France Malta Switzerland

For those considering the ETIAS, you should align with these criteria:

  • Not hold EU citizenship

  • Be from a country that has a visa waiver for short visits with ETIAS-requiring European nations

  • Not possess any residence permit or similar documentation issued by an EU country

Who is eligible for the Luxembourg ETIAS?

Young and old travelers alike, originating from non-European nations that enjoy visa-free entry to Luxembourg and the larger Schengen Zone are required to have an ETIAS.

For detailed clarity, the following is an exhaustive list of countries eligible for the ETIAS travel authorization:

Antigua and Barbuda Japan Saint Vincent
Argentina Kiribati Samoa
Australia Macau Serbia
Bahamas Macedonia Seychelles
Barbados Malaysia Singapore
Bosnia and Herzegovina Marshall Islands Solomon Islands
Brazil Mauritius South Korea
Brunei Mexico Taiwan
Canada Micronesia Timor Leste
Chile Moldova Tonga
Colombia Montenegro Trinidad and Tobago
Costa Rica New Zealand Tuvalu
Dominica Nicaragua Ukraine
El Salvador Palau United Arab Emirates
Georgia Panama United Kingdom
Grenada Paraguay United States of America
Guatemala Peru Uruguay
Honduras Saint Kitts and Nevis Vanuatu
Hong Kong Saint Lucia Venezuela

ETIAS-exempt: Who doesn't need to apply for a Luxembourg ETIAS?

EU nationals and residents aren't required to obtain a Luxembourg ETIAS. They can smoothly travel through Luxembourg and the broader Schengen Area using just their passport or national identity card.

For those already holding a valid Schengen visa, there’s no added obligation to secure a Luxembourg ETIAS either.

Can minors apply for a Luxembourg ETIAS?

For young travelers, it's essential to note the following: Minors from visa-exempt nations are required to secure a Luxembourg ETIAS visa waiver prior to entry to the country.

The application can be made by the child's parent or legal guardian. Each minor who will travel to Luxembourg requires a separate application.

How long can I stay in Luxembourg with the ETIAS?

A Luxembourg ETIAS comes with a validity of 3 years. But, if the travel document used during the application process expires sooner, then the ETIAS's validity matches that earlier date as well.

This travel authorization permits multiple entries into Luxembourg and its Schengen counterparts, but the cumulative stays should not go beyond 90 days within a span of 6 months.

Can I extend my Luxembourg ETIAS?

Once the Luxembourg ETIAS reaches its expiry date, renewals are not an option. A fresh application is the only recourse in that case.

Also, if your travel document expires while the ETIAS is still active, a new application is necessary as well.

Required documents for the Luxembourg ETIAS

When preparing for the ETIAS application, ensure you have:

  • A valid travel document – Commonly a passport, it should remain valid for a minimum of three months after your intended departure from the Schengen Zone.

  • Filled-out application form – You will need to add various details, like your birth date, nationality, the names of your parents, educational qualifications, current profession, the primary country of stay, the address of your destination, and any criminal history or past visits to war or conflict zones.

If you’re going to visit a relative living in a European country that requires ETIAS authentication, be prepared to provide comprehensive details about them, including outlining the nature of your relationship with them.

Luxembourg ETIAS fees and cost

The standard charge for the Luxembourg ETIAS will be 7 euros, equivalent to approximately $8.

Individuals below 18 years and those aged 70 and above are not subjected to this fee.

Luxembourg ETIAS processing time

A significant number of applicants receive their ETIAS authorization promptly, often within a few minutes. However, in certain cases, the process might extend up to 30 days. Therefore, applying ahead of your planned travel date is advisable.

  • Rush processing time: A faster alternative, albeit at an increased cost.

  • Super Rush processing time: Tailored for individuals with urgent needs.

It's essential to note that the indicated iVisa processing durations do not include the time taken by the Luxembourgish government for application review.

Do transit passengers need the Luxembourg ETIAS?

If you're a traveler from a visa-exempt country just passing through Luxembourg, you won't need an ETIAS if you stay in the airport's international transit area.

But if you plan to step out of this area or visit other European countries that require the ETIAS, you'll definitely need one.

Luxembourg entry requirements or restrictions

Luxembourg welcomes travelers without imposing rigorous entry constraints. COVID-19 vaccination documentation isn't mandatory. However, you must be in possession of:

  • A current and valid travel document, like a passport

  • An active ETIAS authorization or a Schengen visa

Differences between the Luxembourg ETIAS and the Luxembourg Schengen Visa

It might be a bit tricky figuring out if you need a Luxembourg ETIAS or a Luxembourg Schengen Visa. Firstly, the ETIAS isn't a visa. It's an electronic travel pass, much like the United States ESTA.

Here are the main differences:

  • Eligibility: An ETIAS targets those who can currently explore Europe visa-free. The Schengen visa, conversely, caters to those who must have a visa to enter the European Union.

  • Application process: For the ETIAS, you fill out an online form and provide a valid travel document and some basic information. For the Schengen visa, it's a longer process. You need more documents, like proof of funds, and have to attend a personal interview to provide your fingerprints.

  • Number of entries: An ETIAS allows multiple entries while it's valid. A Schengen visa might allow single, double, or multiple entries, depending on the decision of the immigration officer.

  • Format: An ETIAS is an electronic authorization that is digitally linked to a travel document, while the Schengen visa is a paper sticker affixed to a passport.
