In response to growing numbers of sex workers, restrictions were placed on the issue of permits for cabaret workers. The European Parliament reported in 2000 that reform of the penal code was under consideration with a view to reinforcing the available means of action against prostitution networks and rings trafficking in women for purposes of prostitution.

Residence permits are granted to cabaret artists and are often used as a route of entry for sex workers. Traffickers use this guise to import foreign women to the EU via Luxembourg.

The main legal form of recruiting foreign women is the residence permit granted under an artist's contract … 1073 artists' have been identified in the country's 21 cabarets' - 60% from eastern European countries.
