Note: This information will continue to be sent regularly for the benefit of new registrants in STEP.  We will be sure to highlight any new information from previous emails.

According to current information, the last scheduled flight on United Airlines direct to the United States from Belgium will be on March 28, 2020.  Daily direct flights to the United States are available in Paris (Air France), and Frankfurt (United and Delta). Other flight options are available from Paris and Frankfurt on a less frequent basis. Flight availability is subject to further restrictions. Please visit our website with the latest instructions on the necessary documents to cross the Luxembourg-France and Luxembourg-Germany borders.

U.S. citizens in Luxembourg who normally live in the United States should arrange for immediate return home or be prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period.  You should have a plan to depart from Luxembourg that does not rely on U.S. government assistance.  If you are considering returning to the United States, you are urged to work with your airlines to make travel arrangements while flights are still available.  If your travel has been disrupted, please contact your airline – the U.S. Embassy cannot make individual flight arrangements on your behalf.
