for your partner
You are relocating to Luxembourg and your partner is coming with you. You’ve got a job but he/ she hasn’t and is willing to find one. Here are some ideas about how to find a job in Luxembourg.
The job market
In spite of its small size, Luxembourg has a rich job market. Many Eu political and financial institutions are based here as well as numerous tech companies. You can find English-speaking jobs in all these domains, but some of the jobs might require a knowledge of German, French, or Luxembourgish. Read the job ad carefully
Children and young adults up to the age of 30 who are not themselves insured may be co-insured with a parent who is.
People retiring to Luxembourg need to get health insurance in order to recieve a residence permit. People granted non-resident tax status may not be required to make healthcare contributions but will probably be covered by the health insurance offered by their employer
Register with ADEM
