Employers looking for workers in Luxembourg are required by law to report any vacancy to the Department of Employment (Administration de l’Emploi). A work permit application must be submitted to the Ministry of Employment before entering Luxembourg territory.
If you live outside the EU / EEA, the following paperwork must be provided to apply for a work permit:
- A certified copy of the applicant’s full passport
- A certified copy of all relevant professional diplomas
- An explanatory letter from the potential employer confirming the employment
- CV of the applicant
- A certified copy of the employment contract
The Ministry of Employment reserves the right to request additional documents during the processing of the application. The application process takes 4 to 12 weeks.
After receiving a confirmation letter, the applicant must apply for a visa at the Luxembourg embassy of his country of residence or the Belgian embassy in countries where Luxembourg is not directly represented.
