Working in Luxembourg

The workforce in Luxembourg is very skilled, and highly educated. The job market benefits from the multilingual nature of the country. Approximately half of Luxembourg’s workers commute across borders from neighbouring countries of France, Belgium and Germany.

Citizens of EU countries and workers from Iceland, Norway or Switzerland can work in Luxembourg without the need for work or resident permits. They also benefit from the National Health Fund, and Social Security benefits just like citizens of Luxembourg.

Non-EU workers need to have a valid passport and visa to stay in the country for up to three months. For longer stay they must apply for a residence permit. Employers have to file for work permit with Employment Office for non-EU citizens before they come to the country. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs takes the labour market into account before issuing the permit.

Currently steel industry and banking are very strong. There casual job options available in bars, restaurants, hotels, and campsites available in Luxembourg. Having working knowledge of German, French or Luxembourgish is a major advantage. Some financial institutions also offer internships to recent and prospective graduates.

Other job options available include office work for those who are qualified. This is usually easier to get due to the need for large numbers of secretarial and office staff. Temporary nursing positions can be found in hospitals, homes and clinics to cover for permanent staff on short notice. People with own transport like a van, car or even a motorcycle can find do courier work.
