Entry & Exit Formalities

Visas

EU citizens can stay indefinitely; many other nationals can enter visa free for up to 90 days.

Money

Credit cards are widely accepted. ATMs are very prevalent.

Post

Postal rates for standard-sized letters under 50g: €0.60/0.85/1.10 to domestic/EU/non-EU

Smoking

Luxembourg has yet to ban smoking in cafes and pubs which comes as something of a shock coming from elsewhere in Western Europe. To refresh the lungs you'll find that many sights have plenty of steps, but that can prove hard on the infirm or disabled.
