In the current context of the COVID-19 pandemic, some countries may require proof of a negative COVID-19 test to enter their territory.
In this context, the Luxembourg State is offering, for the summer holiday period, a free test per person before a trip or tourist stay abroad.
In a first phase, the system will only allow the booking of appointments with regard to departures in August.
This new procedure replaces the one where a code had to be requested in order to make an appointment. However, codes received before mid-August to make an appointment remain valid throughout August 2020.
All persons residing in Luxembourg and who have or wish to travel abroad (tourist trip) to a country that requires a negative test for COVID-19 can be tested for COVID-19.
In case of a trip of several persons, each person must request their appointment individually.
The test is free of charge for people travelling to a country that requires a negative test result from people entering the country. If the destination country does not explicitly require proof, the test cannot be offered free of charge at the moment. It is nevertheless possible for persons who wish to be tested, to contact a private laboratory and have the test carried out at their own expense.
Likewise, if no time slot is available for the desired date of the free test, it is possible to contact a private laboratory and have the test performed at their own expense.
In order to make an appointment, the person must:
In the case of business travel, free testing can be obtained by contacting the Chamber of Commerce.
The procedure is free of charge.
The application is to be made using MyGuichet.lu, without the need for a LuxTrust product or an electronic identity card.
In particular, the person must indicate:
They then choose one of the testing centres and the desired time for the test:
The possibility of making an appointment is available on a biweekly basis. Appointments for the second half of August are therefore only possible from mid-August.
Once the date of the appointment has been chosen, the applicant must confirm the transmission of the appointment booking form. Following this, the applicant receives an appointment confirmation, which is to be printed and presented on the day of the appointment.
The test is part of the COVID-19 large-scale testing project and follows the same procedures.
The test person is informed of the result by SMS, which also contains a link to download the certificate. The deadline for transmission of results is approximately 48 hours. In some cases, delays in excess of 48 hours have been observed.
It is possible to choose the language in which to receive proof of the test result. To do so, the following procedure should be followed:
Any decision on border crossing is the responsibility of the respective local authorities and therefore cannot be guaranteed by the Luxembourg authorities. As the situation is changing from day to day, it is recommended that you check with the respective local authorities on the arrangements in force at the time of the cross-border movement.
