For short-term stay visas, applicants are required to come in person to the Consular Section when lodging their application. It is recommended to read carefully the instructions provided under the entry " Visa to Luxembourg " to go forward through all the stages of the visa application process.

*For long-term stay visas or to work regardless of the length of the stay, applicants are required to send their application directly to the Immigration Directorate in Luxembourg. It is permitted to forward the application through the Consular Section. It should be noted that the application is in no way scrutinized in Bangkok.
