Notarial and documentary services
Information about official documents, certificates and notes including how to book an appointment with us. Unless you have a specific requirement for a Consular officer to carry out a service, you should contact a local notaire who can offer many of these services to you instead.
Registering a birth or death
There is no legal requirement for you to register the birth or death of a British national in Luxembourg with UK authorities. The locally issued certificates should be sufficient for all purposes. In most circumstances there is no requirement to register a birth with us if you are applying for a new passport.
Marriage in Luxembourg
If you require any official documents to be issued by the British Embassy in Luxembourg in relation to the above please see our notarial and documentary services guide for more details.

How else we can help

- offer support and help in a range of other cases, such as child abduction, death of a relative overseas, missing persons and kidnapping
- contact family or friends for you if you wish
- make special arrangements in the event of terrorism, civil disturbance or natural disaster
UK law states that we must charge for some services. Details of our Consular Fees and the standard of service you can expect to receive are on display in all our consular offices.
What our consulates cannot do for you
Although we try to help British nationals in a wide range of situations, we cannot:
- get you out of prison, prevent the local authorities from deporting you at the end of your prison sentence, or interfere in criminal or civil court proceedings
- help you enter a country, for example, if you do not have a visa or your passport is not valid, as we cannot interfere in another country’s immigration policy or procedures
- give you legal advice, investigate crimes or carry out searches for missing people, although we can give you details of people who may be able to help you in these cases, such as English-speaking lawyers
- get you better treatment in hospital or prison than is given to local people
- pay any bills or give you money (in very exceptional circumstances we may lend you some money from public funds, which you will have to pay back)
- make travel arrangements for you, or find you work or accommodation
- make business arrangements on your behalf
