In order to facilitate the entry of cross-border workers into Luxembourg during possible border controls, the Luxembourg government has issued a certificate attesting to the employment relationship with the employee.
This certificate serves as proof of the need to cross the border between France and Luxembourg under the COVID19 situation. Upon presentation of this certificate, cross-border workers residing in France will be exempted from the restrictions on border crossings between France and Luxembourg.
After announcing the closure of three of its borders, Germany has decided to tighten controls at its border with Luxembourg.
Only cross-border workers will now be able to cross the border between Germany and Luxembourg.
In order to do so, you will have to provide proof that you need to cross the border between Germany and Luxembourg, otherwise the German police will not let you pass.
A certificate has therefore been made available by the government of the Grand Duchy. It must be duly completed by the employee as well as by the employer, who must sign it in order for it to be valid.

For the SNCT
In the interest of reducing the risk of transmission for customers of roadworthiness testing bodies as well as for roadworthiness inspectors, certain precautionary measures will have to be observed from Tuesday 17 March 2020 until further notice.
The following precautionary measures will be applicable for all technical inspection organizations:
The technical inspection centres will only accept vehicles for the specified period of time for which the technical inspection certificate will expire within 2 weeks or for which the technical inspection certificate is no longer valid;
Contact with the customer should be reduced to a strict minimum;
The number of customers waiting in a closed room must not exceed 5 persons. In addition, a minimum distance of 2m between customers must be maintained;
It is recommended that technical control inspectors protect themselves with single-use gloves or a disinfectant against possible transmission of pathogens when the inspector has to manoeuvre a client's vehicle.
The Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Mobility and Public Works, reserves the right to adapt the present restrictions according to the assessment of the situation and may verify at any time the application of the present obligations and recommendations by the technical control organizations.
For further information or in case of emergency, a contact person is available at (+352) 247-84958.
The introduction of these provisions is intended to mitigate the impact of the epidemic, to safeguard the health of our employees and those around them, and to maintain our level of service at the highest possible level.
