Andorra is not part of the Schengen area. Andorra is landlocked, and does not have an airport; therefore, all visitors to Andorra must enter via Andorra’s border with either Spain or France. Visit the Embassy of the Principality of Andorra website for the most current visa information.
The U.S. Department of State is unaware of any HIV/AIDS entry restrictions for visitors to or foreign residents of Andorra. Visit the Embassy of Andorra’s website for the most current visa information.
Credible information indicates terrorist groups continue plotting attacks in Europe. European governments are taking action to guard against terrorist attacks; however, all European countries remain potentially vulnerable to attacks from transnational terrorist organizations. U.S. citizens are reminded to remain vigilant with regard to their personal security.
Crime: Andorra has a low crime rate. However, since all visitors to Andorra transit through southern France or northeast Spain, it is important to be aware of the type of crime that tourists typically experience in the region. Please refer to country information sheets on Spain and France for additional information.
Victims of Crime:
U.S. citizen victims of sexual assault should first contact the U.S. Consulate General in Barcelona.
Report crimes to the local police at 112 and contact the U.S. Consulate General at (34) 93-280-2227.
Remember that local authorities are responsible for investigating and prosecuting the crime.
The local equivalent to the “911” emergency line for police, ambulance, or fire in Andorra is 112. Typically, the 112 line has English-speaking operators.
See our webpage on help for U.S. victims of crime overseas.
Domestic Violence: U.S. citizen victims of domestic violence may contact the U.S. Consulate General in Barcelona for assistance.
For further information:
Good medical care is available in Andorra. Regulations regarding medications may vary from those in the United States. Andorra relies on the Spanish and French postal systems. As Spanish and French regulations do not permit the international shipment of medication, please do not ship medication from the United States to Andorra as the package will transit through Spain or France and likely be intercepted. U.S. citizens who plan a lengthy trip to Andorra should bring their own medication or obtain a prescription for that medication from a local physician.
You can also dial the Europe-wide emergency response number 112 to reach an operator for emergency services (similar to the U.S. 911 system).
We do not pay medical bills. Be aware that U.S. Medicare does not apply overseas.
Medical Insurance: Make sure your health insurance plan provides coverage overseas. Most care providers overseas only accept cash payments. See our webpage for more information on insurance providers for overseas coverage.
We strongly recommend supplemental insurance (our webpage) to cover medical evacuation.
If traveling with prescription medication, check with the government of Andorra’s webpage to ensure the medication is legal in Andorra. Always carry your prescription medication in original packaging with your doctor’s prescription.
Vaccinations: Be up-to-date on all vaccinations recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Further health information:
Criminal Penalties: You are subject to local laws. If you violate local laws, even unknowingly, you may be expelled, arrested, or imprisoned.
Arrest Notification: If you are arrested or detained, ask police or prison officials to notify the U.S. Consulate General in Barcelona immediately. See our webpage for further information.
Faith-Based Travelers: See our following webpages for details:
LGBTI Travelers: There are no legal restrictions on same-sex sexual relations or the organization of LGBTI events in Andorra. However, the LGBTI community in Andorra is not as visible or as politically organized as in neighboring countries.
Travelers Who Require Accessibility Assistance: Andorran law prohibits discrimination against persons with physical, sensory, intellectual, and mental disabilities in employment, education, access to health care, and the provision of other state services.
Women Travelers: See our travel tips for Women Travelers.
Special Circumstances: Andorra is part of the Eurozone and only euros are accepted.
Road Conditions and Safety: While in Andorra, you may encounter road conditions that differ significantly from those in the United States.
Traffic Laws: Unlike in the United States where drivers receive traffic tickets and then pay the court via mail or in person, Andorran police authorities may levy fines on the spot and issue a receipt for the payment.
Public Transportation: Andorra does not have railroad or airport services, and given Andorra’s geography, size and location, road travel is the most common mode of transport.
Public transportation (bus and taxi services) are readily available and they generally function well. All public transportation companies operate under the regulations of the Andorran ministry of Economy and Finances. Information about them is available from the official Andorran website: http://www.mobilitat.ad/ca/transport-public
Car rental is also available and an international drivers’ license is not required for tourists as long as they carry a valid driver’s license (with photo). In case of a car incident, private companies provide roadside assistance and each county has traffic and citizen assistance services.
Traffic incidents are publicized through the Andorran government website link: http://www.mobilitat.ad/mapa/ca/mapa/extended
Road condition information is available by phone:
Calling from Andorra: 1802 1802
Calling from outside of Andorra: +376 1802 1802
Transportation of hazardous materials is controlled by the National Traffic Control center.

Aviation Safety Oversight: As there is no direct commercial air service to the United States by carriers registered in Andorra , the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has not assessed the government of Andorra’s Civil Aviation Authority for compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) aviation safety standards. Further information may be found on the FAA’s safety assessment page
