Measures concerning the entry into Luxembourg of third-country nationals -COVID-19 Test

Given the epidemiologic situation, additional measures were taken at the external border of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg: from 21 August 2020, third-country nationals aged 11 or over who wish to travel by air to Luxembourg from a third country not included in the list (see the link below) , even if they have a temporary residence permit or a residence permit, must present the negative result of a biological test for Covid-19 before boarding. This does not apply to members of the flight crew and to passengers on a stopover waiting for a connecting flight and who are not leaving the transit area. The test must have been carried out less than 72 hours before the flight.
