The government announced on Wednesday that the health measures for entering Luxembourg by air will be extended.

The measures that are currently in place at Findel airport will remain in place until 18 December. The announcement was made in a press release by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The process is very similar to the CovidCheck system: in order to travel to Luxembourg by plane, travellers are required to present a complete vaccination certificate, a certificate of recovery, or a negative test result (PCR, NAAT, TMA, LAMP) performed less than 72 hours before the flight.

It will still be possible to present a rapid antigenic test as long as it was performed less than 48 hours before the flight and was carried out by a medical analysis laboratory or other authorised organisation. The certificate must either be written in one of the administrative languages of Luxembourg, or alternatively in English, Italian, Spanish, or Portuguese.

These restrictions apply to any person aged 12 or older who is a citizen of the European Union or of the countries associated with the Schengen area. Citizens of Saint-Martin, Andorra, Monaco, or the Vatican are also allowed to travel to Luxembourg.

While this includes an exhaustive list of countries, some fifteen countries and regions are still affected by a ban on entering the Grand Duchy until 31 December inclusive. This list is updated by the Luxembourg authorities and can be consulted here.
