Residency in Andorra

Andorra residence permits are highly controlled and regulated. Each year, the State publishes the number of people who will be allowed to immigrate to the country, under all its forms. It also regulates the work permits and outlines which sectors and salary classifications are allowed—following the demand of the labor market. This allows a very low unemployment rate, ensures a quality standard of living and very high security.

Among the possible forms of immigration, there are various types of Andorra residence permits expressly made ​​for foreigners who want to come and take advantage of the many benefits the country has to offer. Broadly categorised as active or passive residency, these options accommodate both residents without gainful employment and those who aim to live and work full-time in the country.
