Administrative procedures / Residence inscription

Stay over 3 months in Luxembourg

Obligation to be registered in the commune's population register

As a new resident in Luxembourg and if you are staying more than 3 months in the Grand Duchy, you must register with the municipal administration of your new place of residence.

When you move to Luxembourg you have to register in person and with all members of your familu with your local commune. As each commune is autonomous, the procedure may vary from commune to commune. They ensue from different legislations and regulations which determine the procedures to be followed.
In Luxembourg-City the arrival declaration has to be done at the Bierger-Center within 8 days after arrival.

This registration will allow you to settle some of the useful administrative procedures, and also to enroll your children in the primary school in Luxembourg and to register for some local elections in Luxembourg. We remind you that voting in these elections is compulsory as a Luxembourg resident.

Registering at the consulate of your country of your origin

It is very worthwhile for you to register with your consulate or embassy in Luxembourg. Registration is essential for you to be able to receive or renew official documents (passport, national identity card, …) and also, for example, in case of  birth/death, serious accident, arrest, notarial deed, the consulate or embassy can come to your rescue and facilitate administrative formalities.

You also need to be registered if you want to vote in your home country.

See Luxembourg city’s website for a list of embassies and consulates.
