For safety reasons, avoid visiting countries or regions beset by political or other troubles.
Upon written request (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by telephone (247-72445/247-72494), the Directorate of consular affairs and international cultural relations may provide further details on the travel advisories published by the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs. This information mainly relates to travel documents, precautions to be taken, places to avoid in the context of possible security or health threats. By the same token, the Directorate of consular affairs and international cultural relations will provide the traveller with the contact details of Luxembourg embassies or consulates in the country being visited, or those of Belgian missions or, as the case may be, of another European Union (EU) member state, depending on whether there is a Luxembourg mission in the country in question or not.
On the other hand, it is not the role of the Directorate of consular affairs and international cultural relations to influence the traveller’s final decision or to cancel his travel. Indeed, this decision is at the traveller’s sole discretion and is his or her responsibility alone.

Travel document validity
It is your responsibility when planning a trip to make timely enquiries with the Embassy of your destination country about the required travel documents (passport and/or visa), as well as the necessary validity period of your travel document. Indeed, for many countries outside Europe where a valid passport is required, the passport must be valid for a specified period beyond the planned duration of your trip.
Should you encounter any problems once in the country (passport, identity card theft, etc.) be aware that consular assistance is frequently possible.
