US State Dept Travel Advisory
The US Department of State currently recommends US citizens exercise normal precautions in Liechtenstein. Consult its website via the link below for updates to travel advisories and statements on safety, security, local laws, and special circumstances in this country.
US citizens should make sure their passport will not expire for at least 6 months after they enter the country even if they do not intend to stay that long. They should also make sure they have at least 1 blank page in their passport for any entry stamp that will be required. A visa is not required as long as the stay is less than 90 days.
US does not have an embassy in Liechtenstein; the US Ambassador to Switzerland is accredited to Liechtenstein EMER: +(41) (031) 357-7011; US Embassy Bern, Sulgeneckstrasse 19, CH-3007 Bern, Switzerland
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) travelers can face unique challenges when traveling abroad. Laws and attitudes in some countries may affect safety and ease of travel. Legal protections vary from country to country. Many countries do not legally recognize same-sex marriage. Approximately seventy countries consider consensual same-sex sexual relations a crime, sometimes carrying severe punishment.

Liechtenstein's workday is longer than many other countries, 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., albeit with a very long lunch break (officially from noon to 1:30 p.m.). So, do not be surprised if people are busy until later than might otherwise be expected. Additionally, on the country's National Day, 15 August, all residents of the principality are invited to Vaduz Castle, the prince's residence, for a reception that includes speeches and free aperitifs.
Service charges are included in most bills and further tipping is not required. Taxi fares include a service charge so no tipping is necessary.
