Crew requirements


Art. 20 of the Luxembourg Maritime Act 1990

The command of a ship flying the Luxembourg flag shall be entrusted to a person whose nationality is that of one of the Member States of the European Union and who is the holder of a diploma awarded by a school of navigation that is recognized in Luxembourg. Derogations from this nationality requirement may be granted by virtue of a specific authorization by the Minister in special cases, and in particular where the needs of commerce or of seafaring justify such a derogation, or else in the light of the origin of the ships which are applying for registration.
