Entry requirements

This page reflects the UK government’s understanding of current rules for people travelling on a full ‘British Citizen’ passport, for the most common types of travel.

The authorities in Andorra set and enforce entry rules. For further information contact the embassy, high commission or consulate of the country or territory you’re travelling to. You should also consider checking with your transport provider or travel company to make sure your passport and other travel documents meet their requirements.

Entry rules in response to coronavirus (COVID-19)

All travel into Andorra requires transit via neighbouring France or Spain. You should check the entry requirements for each country in conjunction with this travel advice. The Andorran Government advises that people returning to Andorra from the United Kingdom must, in addition, follow the COVID related safety measures outlined below until further notice.

All tourists over 6 years of age staying in the country for 3 or more nights must have one of the following certificates:

  • a vaccination certificate confirming that the holder has received the full COVID-19 vaccination dosage
  • a diagnostic certificate indicating a negative SARS-CoV-2 test result in the 72 hours before arriving in the Principality of Andorra or a negative rapid-antigen test certificate from the 48 hours before arriving at the accommodation
  • a recovery certificate certifying that the holder has recovered from COVID-19. The certificate must be the original, written in Catalan, Spanish, French or English, in printed or digital format, and must be shown when checking in to accommodation

Tourists aged over 6 who are residents of France, Spain and Portugal and residents of so-called green countries continue to be exempt from having to present any of the three certificates, as per the Recommendation (UE) 2020/1475, as well as those from countries with a test ratio equal to or over 5,000 tests per week per 100,000 inhabitants and a positivity rate of less than 5%.

For further information, please visit Andorra COVID information page.

All those arriving in Andorra are advised by Andorran authorities to take extreme preventive measures (personal distance, hands sanitation and wearing mask) and minimize social interactions.

All those arriving from the UK will be required to provide their name and surnames, passport or census number, telephone number, city or region of origin in the United Kingdom, date of arrival in Andorra and date of return (if returning) to the United Kingdom to the Andorran authorities.
