Andorra has officially reopened borders for international tourism, and as of July 29, is now allowing all nations to visit, but with different entry requirements based on residency.
Andorra is a quaint micro-nation nestled into the Pyrenees mountains between France and Spain, with a population of just under 80,000, but somehow still manages to get almost 10 million visitors per year.
On June 1, Andorra reopened to neighboring France and Spain. Now, the government of Andorra has started to relax entry, especially from neighboring EU nations. As of August 3rd, Andorra has only seen 937 total cases, with 64 of them active.
Countries Allowed To Travel To Andorra
All Nations (with different requirements)
The Ministry Of Health made an announcement on July 29 that every nation was now welcome to visit Andorra, but with specific entry requirements based on residency.
EU+ nations will be permitted to enter without a quarantine, and all other nations are permitted entry, but with a mandatory 15-day quarantine.
Here are the current nations allowed to visit Andorra with no quarantine:
- Czech Republic
- San Marino
- United Kingdom
- Vatican City
All Other Nations (Including USA):
All other nations not listed above are welcome to travel to Andorra at this time, however they will have to quarantine for 15 days upon arrival.
I specifically asked their government run tourism board if this includes countries like the USA and Canada, and they confirmed.
However, due to Andorra’s unique location between France and Spain, entry/transit into either France or Spain would have to be approved in order to reach Andorra. Currently for Canadians, this is no issue, as Canadians are welcome to visit both France and Spain. However, the USA is still banned from France and Spain, and it is unknown at this time if transit through cities like Toulouse or Barcelona will be approved for Americans on their way to Andorra.
Americans should contact the consulate of the country they wish to transit through (ex: France or Spain) to inquire about their specific itinerary to see if it will be approved. This includes coming from another EU country, as Andorra is not part of the Schengen zone and border patrol checks are in place.
Entry Requirements for Andorra
Here are the entry requirements for travel into Andorra:
- Acquiring a multiple entry Schengen visa (if needed) as entry to and from a Schengen nation (both Spain and France) is needed to access Andorra
- Obtaining travel health insurance
- A 15-day quarantine for all non-EU travelers
- Agreement to adhere to social distancing
Masks in Andorra
Currently the wearing of masks in all public enclosed spaces is mandatory, as well as on public transit and in cars if you are riding with people you do not live with.
