Every third-country national (i.e. a national from a country which is not an EU Member State or a country treated as such - Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein and Switzerland) requires an authorization to stay and then a residence permit if they wish to reside in Luxembourg for private reasons for a duration of more than 3 months.
A third-country national may apply for an authorization to stay for private reasons in 2 cases:
1. the third-country national can live off his own resources.
2. the third-country national does not fulfill the conditions for family reunification, but has personal or family ties which are so important that a refusal to grant him residence would violate his right to respect for private and family life in a disproportionate manner compared to the motives of refusal. The existing ties are evaluated on how strong, old and stable they are. In the event that the claimed relationship is a partnership (unregistered), both partners cannot be linked to a third person through marriage, a partnership or a long-term relationship. The applicant must also provide proof of sufficient resources.
