Grand Duchy of Luxembourg

The diplomatic relations between Peru and Luxembourg started in 1953. The Embassy of Peru established in Brussels, in the Kingdom of Belgium, is concurrently accredited to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, as the official channel of communication, as well as the Diplomatic Mission responsible for the bilateral relation. Luxembourg has an Honorary Consulate in Peru.

 

The relation with Luxembourg has a significant potential for boosting the economy, trade and investments.
In the same way, given the fact that the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a Member State of the Schengen area, it is part of the Agreement between the European Union and the Republic of Peru on the short-stay visa waiver, that has come into force since 3 December 2015.
