Luxembourg student visa
International students who want to study in Luxembourg in a course that extends for more than 90 days will have to get a student visa. This is a long-term visa available to students who have been granted admission by a recognized university or college in Luxembourg.
The student visa is valid for students wanting to do a course, doctoral program or to carry out research. However, citizens of certain countries need not get a visa provided their stay in Luxembourg does not exceed six months.
Foreign students wishing to study here must get their student visa before they enter the country.
