What do I need to know before retiring in Luxembourg?
When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Luxembourg, they said...
"Before retiring in Luxembourg, expats should familiarize themselves with the country's tax system, as well as the cost of living and healthcare. It is also important to research the availability of public transportation, as well as the availability of leisure activities and cultural attractions. Additionally, expats should consider the language barrier, as Luxembourgish is the official language, although French, German, and English are also widely spoken. Finally, expats should research the visa and residency requirements for retirees," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Luxembourg.
