Who is concernedThird-country nationals who benefit from international protection and hold an "international protection" residence permit can apply for its renewal if they still meet the eligibility conditions.
How to proceed
Application for renewal of the residence permit
In order to renew a residence permit, recipients of international protection must apply to the Immigration Directorate of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs within the 2 months prior to the expiry date of the residence permit.
The application for renewal must be filed using a specific form and must be accompanied by the following documents:
- a copy of the filled-in pages of the valid passport;
- a certificate of affiliation to the Luxembourg Joint Social Security Centre including all the salaried worker's affiliations to date;
- a recent extract from the criminal record in Luxembourg.
To apply for the renewal of their travel document, applicants who hold a travel document for refugees must go to the Directorate of Immigration of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs in person and present their old travel document.
This free renewal must be requested 2 months before the expiry of the travel document.
Loss, theft or damage to the residence permit
If the residence permit is lost, stolen or damaged, a special procedure needs to be followed.
