Passports and visas

  • British Nationals don’t need a visa to travel to Andorra or Spain, but your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay. No additional period of validity beyond this is required

  • remember your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is not valid for Andorra but is valid for Spain. You should consider taking out travel insurance, even if you’re only going for one night - it could save you a lot of money if you get into difficulties

  • you must provide ID (your passport) if requested by a Police Officer. The Police have the right to hold you at a police station until your identity is confirmed.

  • always take care of your passport, as obtaining a replacement is costly and time-consuming
