  • Travel advice for Russia (update) Statement 03/10/2022

    In view of the Russian military aggression against Ukraine, the Luxembourg Government strongly advises its citizens against all travel to Russia. Those residing or travelling in Russia should strongly consider departing Russia if their presence is not essential and while limited commercial travel options remain. In light of the current unpredictable and volatile situation, travel connections with Russia are strongly impacted. Due to the increasing restrictions on travel options between Russia and Europe, there continues to be a real risk of being stranded in Russia for an indefinite period. Furthermore, as Mastercard and Visa have suspended their operations in Russia, we draw the attention to the fact that it is not possible to access funds through Russian banks or to make payments in Russia with non-Russian credit/debit cards.

    The Government also calls on Luxembourg nationals in Russia to be extra cautious. They are advised to keep themselves informed of developments, avoid mass gatherings and follow the instructions of the authorities. It is also recalled that photographing or filming military equipment or installations is strictly prohibited in Russia.
