"Biergerpakt" – Citizen's pact for intercultural living together

Last update : 14.03.2024

General information

The "Biergerpakt" (Citizen's Pact) is aimed at any person of legal age who lives or works in Luxembourg. It gives access to the intercultural living together programme.

Intercultural living together is a participative, dynamic and continuous process that enables everyone to live, work and decide together. It is founded on mutual respect, tolerance, solidarity, social cohesion and the fight against racism and all forms of discrimination. It establishes diversity as an asset for the development of an intercultural society.

The Citizen's Pact is an instrument introduced by the Law on intercultural living together of 23 August 2023. It has replaced the Reception and integration contract (Contrat d'accueil et d'intégration - CAI) since 1 January 2024.


To join the Citizen's Pact, you need to apply for membership online via MyGuichet.lu (with authentication). The cross-border worker needs a certificate of affiliation from the Joint Social Security Centre (dated less than 3 months) to finalise the application.

Voluntary membership gives access to the programme of the intercultural living together and does not specify a duration or deadline for participation in the various modules. However, the Pact ends if the member does not take part in any of the programme's modules for a period of 2 years.

Intercultural living together programme

The free programme is made up of 3 introductory modules to life in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and a vast catalogue of individual modules on key subjects of living together in Luxembourg.
