I’m a single guy and just arrived in Luxembourg for an assignment. I have no idea of what Luxembourg people are like culturally and how I would go about striking up friendships with women. The people seem friendly enough - too friendly almost - and speak loads of languages and I cannot cut through the banter somehow.

My partner and I are non-EU citizens and I have been offered an employment contract by the Luxembourg office of my employer. My partner intends to apply for a 'family member of a third-country national' visa. What evidence does the Ministry require to demonstrate we are a 'declared partnership? (we're un-married) If she secures an employment contract with a Lux employer while on a 'family member' visa, is it possible to apply for a 'salaried worker' visa in Lux or will she need to leave? Thanks!

Dear Ipek,

I'm sorry for asking so many questions! I'm trying to explore the possibility of getting a work and residence permit for as a freelancer in Luxembourg. My question is: to qualify for the freelance permit, do my clients have to be Luxembourgish? (I'm a teacher and the client in question would be a university across the border). I would have other clients as well, at least some of whom would be inside the country. Thank you!

Kind regards,

Hi Ipek,

Thanks for your quick response to my last question. I have another one for you (on a similar topic). I have a work/residence permit in the Netherlands, and I see that it's also possible to keep my residence in the another EU country and simply get a work permit (not a residence permit) in Luxembourg. If I do that, imagine I am commuting every day but I have a full-time employment status with a company in Luxembourg, then what are my future options for gaining residency? Thank you!

Hi Ipek,

We are a new couple from non EU country and just moved to Luxembourg? We have our working permits but we couldn't yet apply for the residence permit although all of our documents are completed. My first question is how long does it take to have residence permit? The other question, how can we apply for the tax card?

Thank you very much in advance.

I am trying to move to Luxembourg. In looking up the legality of living/working in Luxembourg as a non-EU citizen (I'm from the US), I've found that any employer-to-be of mine must have looked first on the local job market and found nobody to hire before being able to hire me. My question is: I have a residence/work permit in the Netherlands, where I currently live-- does such a permit give me any advantage in this process? (I.e. does it classify me as a 'local' applicant?) Thank you!
