Moving to Andorra with
an expatriation project
Having signed a monetary agreement with the European Union in 2011, the Principality of Andorra uses the euro and can issue its own euro bills. This is mainly due to politics, but also due to the geographical location. However, it is not part of the Eurozone. It is also not a member of the European Union.
If you leave from Paris to reach Andorra, you have several options: train, bus, car or plane. To get there by plane, you can fly from Paris Orly airport to Toulouse airport and take a direct flight which takes about 1h 10m. If you are flying from the south of France, from Le Barcarès or Perpignan to Andorra la Vella, you have the option of driving, carpooling or taking the bus.
To move to Andorra, you must apply for residency in the country. This is valid whether you are moving there for work, for retirement or to set up a business. That said, to carry out the various administrative and fiscal procedures, you must directly go to the country. In the case of the Principality, there are few procedures that can be carried out online or remotely. This is why using the services of a Gestoria is a great help. It saves you from having to go back and forth between Andorra and your home country. You will save a lot of time. But above all, you will be able to benefit from a personalized assistance.
Gestoria in Andorra: your key partner in the success of your expatriation project
Located between France and Spain, the Principality of Andorra is a landlocked state in southern Europe. This sovereign country is located in the Pyrenees Mountains. A real Eldorado for the French, but also for other Europeans as the country is ideal for entrepreneurship and professional development.
However, before you can settle in Andorra, you must know that the procedures are not done remotely. You have to go there to complete all the formalities related to your expatriation. This is also valid if you wish to create your company or to make a lucrative activity there.
Serenely organizing your expatriation in Andorra is the main objective of our Gestoria. We can bring our support in the development of your company creation project in Andorra.

The services offered by an Andorran Gestoria
To start your business in Andorra, to find the necessary information for your expatriation project, you have our Andorran Gestoria to guide you. We offer various services.
Residency in Andorra
The condition to reside in Andorra is to obtain a residency permit. There are several types of permits adapted to each resident.
There are a few requirements for obtaining tax residency in Andorra. To become an active tax resident in Andorra, you must:
- Stay in Andorra for at least 183 days during the year;
- Carry out a lucrative professional activity in Andorra, either as an entrepreneur or as an employee;
- Have your economic, financial and/or family centers in Andorra.
If you do not meet any of these conditions, your tax residence will be determined by your nationality. If your country of origin is in agreement with the Principality, a double taxation agreement can be considered.
As for the type of Andorran residence permit, you have the choice between passive or active residency. You must choose the one that is adapted to your situation.
For those who come to live in the Principality to work, the fiscal residency is the one to choose. This is a certificate for those who want to work in Andorra.
