Luxembourg Seasonal Worker Visa: Requirements and Process

Luxembourg Seasonal Worker Visa: Requirements and Process

Luxembourg offers a seasonal worker visa for non-EU citizens to work in specific sectors during their peak seasons. The visa allows stays between 1 week and a maximum of 5 months within 12 months. Renewals might be possible to reach the 5-month limit but you’ll need to leave Luxembourg when the visa expires.

Who can apply?

  • Citizens from countries outside the European Union (EU).

What jobs are eligible?

  • This visa is designed for seasonal work in sectors like:
    • Agriculture (harvesting)
    • Horticulture
    • Tourism
    • Hospitality

What are the visa requirements?

  • A signed seasonal job contract with a Luxembourg company. This is crucial as the company needs to first demonstrate they couldn’t find a local or EU candidate to fill the position.
  • You’ll need a completed visa application form.
  • Valid passport.
  • Proof of sufficient financial resources for your stay.
  • Proof of health insurance coverage.

What’s the visa process?

  1. Find a seasonal job: Look for positions advertised online or directly contact companies in Luxembourg.
  2. Secure a job offer: Negotiate and sign a seasonal work contract with your employer.
  3. Employer applies for LMIA (optional): In some cases, your employer might need to apply for a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) to prove they couldn’t find a local candidate.
  4. Apply for the visa: Once you have a job offer (and LMIA if required), submit your visa application to the Luxembourg embassy or consulate in your home country.
