- applicant's curriculum vitae;
- copies of diplomas or certificates of professional competencies;
- copy of the work contract (in accordance with Luxembourg law), dated and signed by both the applicant and his future employer in Luxembourg;
- the official certificate from the National Employment Agency stating that the employer has the right to hire a third-country national.
- biographical details of the applicant.
All personal documents (birth certificates, marriage certificates, etc.) need to be apostilled. An apostille can only be issued by the state authorities of the country that issued the document. It is impossible for anyone else to do this. Diplomas do not need to be apostilled, unless your employer specifically demands it.
The documents must all be either originals or notarized copies (except for the passport, where a simple copy will be enough). In case authenticity is questionable, the authorities will require the document to be certified by the relevant domestic authority and legalized by the embassy or apostilled.
Note, that it is a post letter, not an email.
