Digital Nomad Visa for Andorra

In early 2021, Andorra announced the launch of a digital visa programme designed to attract digital nomads to the country. The new visa, which became available at the beginning of the year, enables foreign remote workers to live and work in Andorra for up to one year.

If you’re a digital nomad looking for a new and exciting place to call home for a while, the principality might just be it.

Previously, the main routes to obtaining residency in Andorra involved applying for an active or passive residence permit. While they both have their benefits, they can be financially prohibitive for many due to the large deposit that’s required.

The main difference between this visa and the two mentioned above is that no government bond deposit is required. This is significant, as it lowers the barrier to entry for those looking to call Andorra home.

Andorra's Digital Nomad Visa: What You Need to Know

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.

Process Time

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).

A Remote Working Opportunity Like No Other

The goal of Andorra’s digital nomad visa is to encourage digital and technology innovation in the country by making it appealing for remote workers to set down roots here, whether permanently or temporarily.
