So, join us as we explore how to make your dreams of living in the richest country in the world a reality.
Get married to a Luxembourg resident
Those who desire to relocate to Luxembourg through marriage must ensure that they hold a valid passport, and a Schengen entry visa before arriving in Luxembourg.
The processing time for a Luxembourg Schengen family Visa may take up to 15 days in a normal situation – but in extreme circumstances, it could take up to 60 days to be issued. Also, their spouse or partner must be a legal resident of Luxembourg who has a job in the country.
Before applying for a family visa, you will need to obtain a “temporary authorization to stay” from the Luxembourg authorities in Nigeria. A Luxembourg family visa allows you to study and participate in advanced training and retraining courses.
Apply to a university in Luxembourg
Another way to relocate to the world’s richest country is through the study option. If you want to study at a Luxembourg higher educational institution, you must first apply for temporary authorization to stay. Once your authorization is approved, you need to apply for a student visa.
One of the conditions for applying for a student visa is that you must have a letter of acceptance from the university in Luxembourg as proof that you are admitted to one of the Luxembourg universities. The small country is home to 2 universities, 2 business schools, and one institution dedicated to Public Administration studies.
Your Luxembourg student visa is valid for one year and can be renewed. It also allows you to work for a limited period of 15 hours per week.
Work for a Luxembourg employer
Nigerians desiring to relocate to the richest country in the world for employment need to apply for a work visa. Before getting a work visa, you must ensure that you have a job offer from an employer in the country and an employment contract. Your employer will also be required to declare the job position with the National Employment Agency (Agence pour le développement de l’emploi – ADEM) to prove that they are allowed to employ foreign citizens.
For workers with higher qualifications in specialised fields, they can apply for the Luxembourg EU Blue Card. This type of work visa is issued for a period of four years. However, if your employment contract is valid for a longer period, then the visa will be valid for the same period and an additional three months.
