Reminder: third-country nationals coming from a third country cannot enter Luxembourg territory until 31 March 2021 inclusive. Certain categories of persons are exempted. More details on these restrictions are available in our explanatory information page.

The new procedures for applying for aid for costs not covered, set up by the Ministry of the Economy as part of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, will be communicated as soon as possible.
