IF YOU'RE SPENDING A FEW DAYS IN ANDORRA

Yes.

The Andorran, Spanish and French authorities have taken no measures to close the borders and movement into the country. The Government of Andorra is therefore currently applying no restrictions on entering the country, nor on the movement of people and vehicles around its territory.
 

SPAIN
Currently citizens and residents of Spain can move freely to Andorra, always respecting the restrictions established in the Principality.

FRANCE
A COVID-19 certificate does not have to be presented in order to enter Andorra from France.
To travel to France however, everyone aged 12 and over must present a health passport proving that they are fully vaccinated, or a COVID-19 recovery certificate. If an individual does not have either of these documents, they must present proof of a negative test result (with the test having been taken within the 24 hours prior to their arrival). An antigen test can also be taken on arrival.

Andorra, like most of the countries in its environment applies a series of protocols for people visiting the country. 

Since 1st February 2022 in Andorra, following European guidelines, the COVID passport to travel through the European Union expires for all people who have received the double vaccination schedule for more than nine months.

You will also need to present the certificate in order to attend outdoor cultural and sporting events with more than 500 people, and indoor events with more than 20 people.
     
  • A COVID certificate* must also be presented in all of Andorra’s skiing areas: this applies to all those taking part in a sporting activity (including downhill skiing, snowshoeing and other activities) as well as those wishing to enter ski lifts, restaurants and enclosed spaces.

If the negative result is from a rapid antigen test (RAT) and you have symptoms compatible with an acute infection (fever, headache, sore throat, dry cough, general aching of the joints and muscles, vomiting or diarrhoea, cold, fatigue, loss of appetite, loss of smell or taste), you must also do a TMA or PCR test.

Negative PCR or TMA test result:

If the negative result is from a TMA or PCR test, or it’s from an RAT but you don’t have any symptoms, COVID infection is then ruled out.

In both cases, it’s necessary to continue following preventative measures: social distancing, hand washing, ventilation and wearing a face mask.
