A number of countries have placed travel restrictions on Luxembourg residents due to the increasing number of coronavirus cases. Here's an overview of the current situation.

Beginning with the Grand Duchy's neighbours, Belgium have placed Luxembourg on an "orange" list, under "increased vigilance".

People travelling from Luxembourg into Belgium are advised to observe a quarantine or take a test, but there is no obligation.

Travellers to Germany must observe quarantine if they do not have a negative test result less than 48 hours old. This is because there have been more than 50 infections per 100,000 inhabitants in Luxembourg during the last week. German citizens have been advised to avoid travel to Luxembourg.

There are no restrictions for travel to and from France. For the Netherlands, travellers must have a reservation.

Rest of Europe

Bulgaria is accepting tourists without restrictions.

Denmark has placed Luxembourg on a list of "banned countries", meaning Luxembourgish tourists cannot travel to the country. Other "open" countries are allowed to visit Denmark provided they have booked a minimum stay of 6 nights. The list is refreshed every Thursday.

Austria is allowing Luxembourgers to enter without a test or quarantine.

Estonian authorities require a 14 day quarantine for travellers from Luxembourg, as there are more than 16 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants.
