    I'm a Software engineer by profession, working in India. I got an offer from a company based in Luxembourg. And I wish to stay and work over there along-with my wife for a long period ( 6 years + )

    I'm Hepatitis B Carrier (HBsAg+) without any symptoms / effects or problems for a long time. Can I get a Work Permit and Residence Visa for Luxembourg ??
    If an employer selects a candidate, who turns out to be Hepatitis B carrier then what will happen?? Will he be deported due to Hepatitis B Positive Carrier condition?

    Also what are the list of Medical check-up for third-country nationals?
    I'm at crossroads, please reply ASAP , as I already have a stable job over here, and leaving this will be a blunder if I don't get work permit and residence visa in Luxembourg.

    Hi Aly Jr

    I have recently moved to Luxembourg as a dependent .I have recently received my residence permit . in your post you have mentioned that on dependent visa I can automatically get a work permit .Does that mean I don't have to search for a sponsor company ??? Can you tell me where I can find more information on work permissions.

    Thanks for the help

    Hello Suresh, The law has changed since I last wrote that post .You will automatically get a work permit when you receive your dependent visa .Come with your marriage certificate .On arrival your wife will go to the municipality with you .Get you registered in the address where she lives .You will be issued a visa that has the same validity period with your wife . The Indian community in Luxembourg are very active .You will not find things too difficult The only problem you may face is finding a job if you do not speak a second Language like French ,German or Luxembourg .If you are good at learning Languages ,you will over come this hurdle in mater of say a year .I do not know your area of studies . If you are into IT or finance you are more likely to get a job without a second Language . I hope this help Thanks Aly

    Hello Suresh,

    My situation is also similar to that you were in. I'm looking to move to Lux towards end of this year or early next year. Did you find a job? How difficult was it to find one without French language proficiency? And how good is the market for Java developers?

    I'm a software developer with close to 8 years experience. Any help in getting some job references would be much appreciated.

    Hi ,
    I know of a guy from USA who got the same qualification like you ,no single word in French or German .He has a Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science ,he got a job in ABL Advance biological laboratory Luxembourg .

    See the web site

    He applied for the job online in USA ,got it and moved down .He got one year contract and after that it was extended but he tunned it down and went back to USA because he told me Luxembourg is too expenssive for him.

    First of all thanks to u Guys for giving such valuable responses :)

    Currently I am working in Pune-India with a leading MNC called Amdocs Inc.My wife will come to LUX after 3-4 moths (in oct/nov 2011) for her job and then i will get the dependent VISA as well. I am preparing myself in all the aspects so that i can get the job in LUX as soon as possible.I am fluent in English and Hindi languages but not really familiar with French or German.

    Rainer: Thanks a lot , i will surely send you my CV to you.

    I would like to ask you :
    1) How important it is to know the other languages (specially French) in LUX apart from English?
    2) I have done my Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science in 2005 and having 6 years work experience. Is this qualification is good enough to get a job in LUX?
