For assistance in Andorra, please contact the U.S. Consulate General in Barcelona, Spain. The U.S. Consulate General provides a full range of services for U.S. citizens, including, but not limited to, emergency and routine passport services, notarial services, and Consular Reports of Births Abroad.

Read the Department of State’s Fact Sheet on Andorra for information on U.S.-Andorran relations.
Andorra is not part of the Schengen area. Andorra is landlocked, and does not have an airport; therefore, all visitors must enter via Andorra’s border with either Spain or France. Visit the Andorra Ministry of Foreign Affairs website for the most current visa information.
HIV/AIDS Restrictions: The U.S. Department of State is unaware of any HIV/AIDS entry restrictions for visitors to or foreign residents of Andorra.
Credible information indicates terrorist groups continue plotting possible 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. All U.S. citizens are reminded to remain vigilant with regard to their personal security.
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.
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: Report crimes to the local police at 112, and contact the U.S. Consulate General in Barcelona at +(34) 93-280-2227. For domestic violence or child abuse, dial 112 (English-speaking operators are available). Remember that local authorities are responsible for investigating and prosecuting crimes committed in their jurisdictions.
See our webpage on help for U.S. victims of crime overseas.
Domestic Violence: U.S. citizen victims of domestic violence may contact the nearest U.S. Embassy, Consulate, or Consular Agency for assistance. Call the toll-free emergency number in Andorra, 181, to report domestic violence. For more information, see English language brochure under “Servei d’Atenció a les Víctimes de Violència Domèstica i Familiar (SAVVDF)” at https://www.aferssocials.ad/igualtat
Tourism: The tourism industry is generally regulated and rules with regard to best practices and safety inspections are regularly enforced. Hazardous areas/activities generally are identified with appropriate signage and professional staff is typically on hand in support of organized activities. In the event of an injury, appropriate medical treatment is widely available throughout the country. Outside of a major metropolitan center, it may take more time for first responders and medical professionals to stabilize a patient and provide life-saving assistance. U.S. citizens are encouraged to purchase medical evacuation insurance. See our webpage for more information on insurance providers for overseas coverage.
In many countries around the world, counterfeit and pirated goods are widely available. Transactions involving such products may be illegal under local law. In addition, bringing them back to the United States may result in forfeitures and/or fines. The Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Division in the U.S. Department of Justice has more information on this serious problem.
Criminal Penalties: While you are traveling in Andorra, you are subject to its laws.
Regardless of local law, you can be prosecuted in the United States under U.S. law if you:
Arrest Notification: If you are arrested, you should ask police or prison officials to notify the U.S. Embassy immediately. See our webpage for further information.
Special Circumstances: Andorra is part of the Eurozone and only euros are accepted.
Women Travelers: If you are a woman traveling abroad, please review our travel tips for Women Travelers.
LGBTI Rights: The LGBTI community in Andorra is not as visible or as politically organized as in neighboring countries. Andorran law prohibits discrimination against LGBTI persons.
Persons With Mobility Issues: 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.
We do not pay medical bills. Be aware that U.S. Medicare does not apply overseas.
Good medical care is available in Andorra. Regulations regarding medications may vary from those in the United States, however. 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.
General suggestions and information:
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.
Vaccinations: Be up-to-date on all vaccinations recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
