Transport to Luxembourg
Luxembourg Air Rescue helps sick refugees get to Luxembourg:
Luxair airline waives ticket costs for flights from EU countries bordering Ukraine for Ukrainian refugees who already have an agreement with a host family or SHUK (Structure d’Hébergement d’Urgence Kirchberg), provided there are still seats available on the flight. Pets can also be transported. For this it is necessary to send an e-mail to the non-profit association LUkraine, which will then coordinate with the Luxair team.
E-mail address: email@example.com
The email should include the following information from the refugees:
- full name as it appears in the passport
- Current place of residence and origin
- Address where the refugees will live in Luxembourg. In case of accommodation with a host family, provide their full name, address and either email or phone number.
- Flight date
- Mobile number
Through the website UA.SUPPORT you can find lawyers who help Ukrainian refugees for free.
Means of transport
Throughout Luxembourg, the use of public transport (bus, train, tram) in 2nd class is free for everyone.

Technology and computing

Insurances for private hosts
Refugees staying privately with policyholders of the LaLux and Foyer companies are automatically covered by the hosts’ household contents and liability insurance at no extra charge. Some insurance companies offer car insurance for Ukrainian refugees.
Ukrainian driver’s licenses must be transcribed into a Luxembourg driver’s license within one year after its holder takes up normal residence in Luxembourg in order not to lose their validity. The administrative fee for this is 30 EUR. If Ukrainian refugees do not have driver’s licenses rewritten within this time, they will have to take a paid control test (theory and practice) again.
Vehicles registered in Ukraine must be registered no later than 6 months after arrival in Luxembourg:
