Visa for High-Net-Worth-Individual
In 2016 Luxembourg announced a new kind of exclusive residence permit for third-country high-net-worth individual (HNWIs).
HNWIs who would like to establish their residence in Luxembourg are subject to the Luxembourg law on freedom of movement of persons and immigration.
Opening the gates for HNWIs is meant to help maintain Luxembourg’s attractiveness at an international level, while developing and diversifying its economy.
Luxembourg aims to become a leader in an environment marked by competitiveness and by interdependence amongst national economies.
This new exclusive premium-based permit promotes Luxembourg as a destination of choice for international HNWI investors looking for a high-end relocation destination with top business opportunities.
WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR WEALTHY IMMIGRANTS?

Luxembourg has a tax system which is comparable to that of most other countries in the EU. It taxes the worldwide income of its residents based on a progressive personal income tax rate.
Luxembourg levies the lowest Value Added Tax (VAT) rate in Europe. The standard rate of VAT in Luxembourg is 17%, whereby the super-reduced rate is as low as 3%.
