Yellow fever

Yellow fever vaccination is not required.


Infection typically occurs through contact with the saliva of an infected animal, usually caused by bites, scratches or licks near open wounds or mucous membranes (e.g. mouth, nose, eyes). The most common vectors are dogs and bats, but cases of infection in other domestic animals have also been reported.


Caused by toxins released by the bacterium Clostridium tetani, the risk of tetanus infection is present throughout the country.


Insect bites and stings

Diseases such as Crimean-Congo Haemorrhagic Fever, Leishmaniasis, and West Nile virus are present in Southern Europe. As these diseases are transmitted by insect bites and there are no vaccines, it is important to adopt careful behavioural and preventive measures.

The following vaccinations are strongly recommended as these diseases can be contracted anywhere in the world. Experts advise that you protect yourself and other travellers by making sure you are up-to-date with all of the recommended vaccinations. This will allow you to travel safely, while minimising the risk of exposure to infection.

 Territory and climate

Luxembourg is one of the smallest sovereign states on the European continent. The country borders Belgium to the north and west, Germany to the east, and France to the south.

Its territory has two distinct characteristics: the northern, forest-clad highlands, which are relatively low in altitude, and the southern region with its extensive valleys.

As the country is landlocked, Luxembourg tends to have a continental climate, with cold winters and mild summers.
