Luxembourg student permit

International students who wish to study in Luxembourg and stay in the country for more than 90 days for this purpose will need to apply for a Luxembourg student permit. This is a long-term permit available to students who have been accepted into a recognized Luxembourg university or college.

Students who want to take a course, a doctoral program, or conduct research may apply for a Luxembourg study permit.

Before entering the country, make sure to:
  • Apply for a permit within 90 days of receiving the authorization.
  • Submit the request to the Immigration Directorate of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.
  • Make a request for a Type D permit.
After entering the country:
