You have just settled in Luxembourg and plan to stay for a long period there? The declaration of your new residence to the Luxembourg administrative services is an unavoidable step. Just Arrived gives you all the keys to declare your new residence in Luxembourg, be it as a newcomer, because you change your domicile on Luxembourg territory or because you leave the Grand Duchy permanently.
Statement of your new domiciliation in Luxembourg
Declaration to the population office in your commune of residence
This declaration must be made as soon as possible, in person, by the spouse with whom the person usually resides. Minor children shall be represented by their legal representative.
A tutor, curator, legal administrator, ad hoc administrator or special representative on the basis of a valid identity document and the title on the basis of which he acts may also, if necessary, declare your residence for you.
In accordance with the principle of communal autonomy, the terms and conditions of the declarations may vary from one commune to another. They result from different laws and regulations which lay down the procedures to be followed. You will be asked for an identity document and the livret de famille (family record book), as well as a visa or residence permit if necessary.
The declaration of arrival has to be made within 8 days after your arrival. This deadline moreover decreases for the foreign nationals of third countries because these have to declare their arrival on the territory within 3 days after their arrival.
If you are changing residence in Luxembourg, declare yourself online
If you leave your home to move elsewhere in Luxembourg, you must also report this to the municipal administration of your new commune of residence. The latter will also remove you from the register of your former place of residence.
From now on, this declaration can be made online for a certain number of communes via Myguichet.lu, whether it is for a single person, the spouse or PACS partner, as well as minor children registered in the same household and at the same address.
Registration at the consulate of your country of origin
As a new resident in Luxembourg, it is also recommended to register with your consulate or with your embassy in Luxembourg. This registration is essential for the delivery or the renewal of official documents (passport, national ID card, etc.) but also, for instance, in case of birth/death, wedding, serious accident, arrest, notarial act, etc. The consulate or the embassy can help you and facilitate your administrative formalities.
