Luxembourg has a reception center for people fleeing the war in Ukraine. It operates 24/7 and is located at SHUK (Structure d'hébergement d'urgence au Kirchberg), 11, rue Carlo Hemmer in Luxembourg.

This center offers shelter for the first few days, food and basic necessities for people who wish to apply for temporary protection in Luxembourg, as well as those who wish to move to another European country. After the first few days, you will be assigned to other government agencies.
