The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a country of immigration. The steps regarding entry and residence vary according to the country of origin of the person wishing to settle in Luxembourg.
Whilst European Union nationals have the benefit of extremely simplified provisions regarding residence, people coming from third countries are subject to more restrictive rules.
Every European Union (EU) national enjoys freedom of movement within the EU, entitling him to work and live in the country of his choice within the European Union.
Nationals from a country outside the European Union must, where appropriate, produce a visa and a residence permit (autorisation de séjour) in addition to their travel document.
