Luxembourg visit visa
If you want to visit Luxembourg, you’ll need a Schengen visa for a limited period of time. You will remain in the country for a maximum of 90 days within a 180-day span with this visa. A single-entry or multiple-entry visa may be issued.
Since Luxembourg is a member of the Schengen Agreement, you can travel freely inside the Schengen countries, including Luxembourg, with this visa.
Details of the Luxembourg visit visa
You will have to apply for a Schengen short stay visa (Visa C) for transiting through or staying in the Schengen Area for a maximum duration of continued or interrupted 90 days’ stay in each period of 180 days. This is also commonly referred to as the “90/180 Schengen Visa Rule”.

How can I know if my visa is single entry, double entry or multiple entry?
The number of entries allowed on your Schengen visa can be checked from the label entitled
- Number of entries
- Nombre d’etnrees
- Anzahl der einreisen
Here, a ‘MULT’ label stands for multiple entries. Similarly, a ‘1’ label denotes single entry, and a ‘2’ label is for double entry.
As illustrated in the visa sticker attached to their passport, a single-entry visa allows its holder to enter the Schengen Region only once, within a given period of time. If the visa holder has left the Schengen zone, he or she will no longer be allowed to return, even though the number of days permitted by the embassy issuing the visa has not been spent there.
Double entry visa
A double-entry visa usually applies in the same manner as a single-entry visa. The only difference between a single-entry visa and a double-entry visa is that the second one gives you the option to return after you have left the Schengen area again.
You should be very careful not to exceed the number of days allowed to remain in the Schengen Zone, as well as the time during which you are allowed to stay in the Schengen Zone.
Do I have to get travel insurance for visit visa for Luxembourg?
Travel medical insurance is mandatory for all applying for a visit visa for Luxembourg. Cover provided should be a minimum of EUR 30,000.
You are supposed to have travel insurance policies in compliance with the law of the Schengen country if you are using a Schengen visa. The Schengen travel insurance policies may cover medical needs, disruption of cancellation or travel, injuries, loss of passport or luggage.
What happens if I overstay on my Schengen short stay visa (Type C)?
If, for any reason, you overstay, you might have to bear consequences such as –
- Being fined
- Future Schengen visa applications to be reviewed further than the usual scrutiny and might be refused altogether
- Processing time for future visa applications to be extended, from anything between 30 to 60 days
- You also stand the risk of being banned from entering the Schengen Area for 2 to 5 years.
Although no general policy on overstaying penalties exists for all the Schengen member states, each country imposes various types of penalties.
Therefore, the implications of staying too long in the Schengen territory, whether your visa or the 90 days allowed for citizens of the countries protected by the visa waiver scheme, depend a lot on the number of days you have overstayed too long and the country you have overstayed in.
