The Luxembourgian nationality law is ruled by the Constitution of Luxembourg.

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a member state of the European Union and, as such, its citizens are also EU citizens.

Since 1 January 2009, Luxembourg allows dual citizenship.[1] Since then, a lot of Belgians made use of the new law to adopt Belgian-Luxembourgish citizenship, especially Belgians living in Arelerland, a part of the Belgian province of Luxembourg at the border with the Grand Duchy.[2]
