• Invitations are issued automatically to UK nationals registered as residing in Luxembourg;

• Residence permits are available for UK nationals and their family members residing in Luxembourg before 1 January 2021;

• Applications must be introduced before 30 June 2021;

• Residence permits will be valid as of 1 January 2021;

• The residency permits will be valid for 5 or 10 years (depending on current residence in Luxembourg);

• The residence permits will be renewable upon request, provided that the residence conditions continue to be fulfilled.
