While street crime is infrequent, safeguarding personal belongings is advisable.

Andorra Travel Advice

Vigilance against drink and food tampering is recommended. Public alcohol consumption is illegal, and Andorra maintains a strict stance against illegal drugs, with severe penalties for possession.

Emergency services, including ambulance, fire, police, and mountain rescue, are available. See also the travel advice page.

Entry Requirements

Andorra’s entry requirements for British citizens traveling via France or Spain entail adherence to Schengen area passport regulations. Although Andorra itself isn’t in the Schengen zone, entry necessitates passing through a Schengen country. COVID-19 testing or vaccination is not mandated. Passport validity demands a date of issue within the last decade and an expiry date three months beyond departure from Schengen. Likewise see also the piece I wrote on British Born Abroad.

Visa obligations are contingent on French or Spanish regulations, with Andorra not requiring a separate visa. Extended stays necessitate in-person application for work or residence permits. Traveling with children mandates custody documentation or parental authorization. Additionally, hotels and tourist apartments must register overnight guests with the police, requiring passport details. For medical requirements, consult TravelHealthPro’s Andorra guide.

Customs

Andorra enforces strict customs regulations, requiring declaration of prohibited or taxable goods. Exiting Andorra may incur taxes on tobacco, alcohol, and luxury items upon re-entering France and Spain. France and Spain impose limits on tobacco imports from Andorra. Likewise see also BNO Renewal in Hong Kong as well as the UK Family Visa Fees.

Crime

While street crime is rare, safeguard personal belongings and avoid consolidating valuables in one location. Remain vigilant against drink and food spiking. Alcohol consumption in public spaces is illegal, and Andorra maintains a zero-tolerance policy towards illegal drugs. LGBT+ travelers generally find Andorra tolerant, with legal recognition of same-sex marriage and transgender rights. Emergency services include ambulance, fire, police, and mountain rescue, reachable at designated numbers.

Ambulance: 116 Fire: 118 Police: 110 Mountain rescue: 112. Likewise see also the article that I wrote on Angola Travel Advice as well asĀ  the British Embassy in France.
