Following the recommendation of the Council of the European Union, the grand duchy has updated its list of third countries whose residents are exempted from the temporary restriction on non-essential travel to the grand duchy.

In a press release, the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, while acting on the Council’s recommendation of 23 September (EU) 2021/1712 on travel to the EU, announced it has added Chile, Kuwait and Rwanda to the list of countries whose residents are authorised to enter the grand duchy, including for non-essential travel reasons.

On the other hand, it removed Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the Republic of Moldova from the list of third country nationals allowed to enter Luxembourg for non-essential travel with effect from 11 October.

The updated list of third country residents allowed to enter Luxembourg, including for non-essential travel reasons can be found on the governments website.

Travel restrictions to the grand duchy, including for non-essential travel reasons, apply to all other third-country nationals not mentioned in the list. The travel restrictions in place for third country nationals were recently extended from 31 September until 31 December 2021.
