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.
At present, Catalonia is applying a perimeter closure of the frontiers and has enforced a municipal lockdown at weekends from 6 am on Friday until the same time on Monday. People from the territory of Catalonia are therefore not allowed to enter or leave unless these movements are justified.(1)
France has taken measures to reduce social contact and any travel around its territory to the minimum possible, with the exception of duly justified travel.(2)
If you come from any destination on your way to Andorra, you can enter the country unrestricted but should bear in mind that additional health documentation may be requested depending on the country from which you come: please check these requirements at DO I HAVE TO PROVIDE ANY HEALTH CERTIFICATES TO ENTER ANDORRA?
To enter Andorra, all you need is a valid national ID or passport.
Additionally, visitors who live in Spain and want to come to Andorra by travelling through Catalonia can do so as long as the Autonomous Community where they live is not in a lockdown.
Visitors must provide documentation proving the Autonomous Community from which they are travelling. Likewise, when going back to their country via the Spanish frontier, they will have to justify their final destination and perhaps the reason for their trip to Andorra.
Visitors arriving or returning by the French frontier will have to provide justification of the reason for their travel in France.
All tourists travelling around Spain and France who want to enter Andorra can do so as long as they show a national ID or passport and documentation justifying their stay in Andorra.
From the entry into force of the decree to be published by the Government of Andorra soon, tourists who spend 3 or more nights in the country and who are over 6 years of age, will be asked to prove they have tested negative (in a PCR or TMA) in the 72 hours before they arrive in Andorra. Admission to tourist accommodation will therefore also be conditional upon showing a negative result.
Visitors coming from France, Spain and Portugal are exempt from submitting a test due to the health agreements between Andorra and these countries. Similarly, tourists coming from countries considered as being in the ‘green zone’, or from countries whose test ratio for the population of their territory is greater than 5,000 tests carried out per 100,000 inhabitants per week or with less than 9% of their total number of tests being positive, will also be exempt.
School groups travelling to Andorra via coach for “Snow Week”, regardless of the place of origin, must also prove they have tested negative under the same conditions.
However, residents of Spain, France or Portugal are advised to obtain a travel document from their Social Security office. People of other nationalities are advised to take out private travel insurance to provide coverage against COVID-19 or other possible incidents during their stay in Andorra.
There will be no health checks. You will only be required to maintain the hygiene and safety measures recommended by the health authorities.
After you have entered the country wearing a face mask is mandatory, although you can maintain a safe distance of 1.5 metres.
The use of the face mask is mandatory in enclosed public premises such as bars, restaurants, shops and cultural establishments, among others...
All people over eight years old are required to wear masks, although it is recommended starting at six years old.
There are no limits on movement around Andorra. However, a minimum safe distance of 1.5 metres between individuals has been stipulated. You should also be aware that, in open spaces, you must maintain a safe distance of 4 metres (if you are on foot), 10 metres (if you are running) and 20 metres (if you are cycling).
Wearing face masks is mandatory in vehicles if you are travelling with people you do not live with, or if you are travelling by motorcycle (provided you are not wearing a full-face helmet with visor).
Everyone travelling to Andorra is exempt from having to complete a period of quarantine on arrival there.
No. They will not have to pass any form of health check. You will only need to bring their pet health passport, as per the usual requirements.
