The Andorran Government has allocated a total of 100 entrepreneur visas for 2023, with 50 designated for digital nomad visas and the other 50 for self-employed business visas.
If you’d like to be one of the lucky fifty applicants, here’s what you need to know.
How the Visas Are Processed
While the visa applications will be processed in chronological order, precedence will be granted to individuals from countries with economic agreements with Andorra, followed by members of the EU or EU Space and finally, applicants from other countries (in that order).
Health and Life Insurance
The digital nomad visa is based on self-employment and does not require forming a company here, which means no CASS payments are needed. However, this does mean that you’ll need private health and life insurance for you and your dependents (if applicable).
Proof of Sufficient Funds
You must be able to demonstrate that you have sufficient funds to support yourself throughout the entire duration of the visa. This includes providing proof of income equivalent to three times the Andorran base salary per year, per person.
Certification from the Ministry of Economy
You’ll need to obtain certification from the Ministry of Economy stating that your job does not require a fixed location and can be performed remotely with the use of technology and telecommunications. To secure this you must show that you’re contributing to Andorra’s digital economy.
Once your residency application has been approved your residency card will be issued in approximately 2-4 months.
Time in the Country
As with the passive residency option, the digital nomad residency visa requires that you spend a minimum of 90 days in the country (per calendar year).
