Can I get my passport today?

The current standard processing time is approximately 4-6 weeks.

A temporary passport can be issued on the day only in the case of an emergency situation (such as the death or serious illness of a family member or in some cases for urgent business travel).

In all other circumstances, you will have to wait a minimum of 10 working days to get a passport. Valid proof of confirmed travel (e.g. airline ticket/email) must be presented in order for any application to be processed sooner than the standard turnaround. You may incur an additional fee. Please contact us immediately if you require a passport urgently.

We also provide assistance if you are on holiday in Luxembourg and your passport has been lost or stolen.
