Last time updated

Those who move to Luxembourg with children encounter a lot of paperwork at first. Before moving to a new country, it is recommended to collect all the necessary documents in advance: this way it will be easier to get settled in and register when you arrive. There are some documents that will be essential and others that you should take with you for different situations. Let's see what are they.

Basic essential documents

Which papers are needed depends largely on the grounds on which an expat is moving to the Grand Duchy.

Generally, there are five types of documents required for most matters — passports, certificates, an apostilled criminal record certificate, health records and medical documents. However, you can ask the embassy for an up-to-date list of documents for your specific situation.
