What are customs exemptions?

Customs exemptions establish the maximum number of products that travellers can cross the border with on the way back to their country without having to declare them or pay customs duties. The limitations applied to certain products (coffee, alcohol, tobacco and similar types of goods) are established in terms of the number of goods, while the limitations affecting other products (milk, butter, cheese, sweets, etc.) are based on their value or bulk. Customs exemptions for all industrial products, excluding perfume and cologne, are based on their monetary value (in euros).

Unless specified otherwise, customs exemptions are only applicable to persons of legal age. The value of the products purchased in Andorra is not accumulative and cannot be split among travellers. Distinctions are not made between agricultural and industrial products.

For the purpose of traveller transit Andorran borders are open 24 hours a day. Nonetheless, opening hours (for Andorran and Spanish customs offices) do apply to freight and to goods that it is mandatory to declare, either because they are exports or because they exceed the aforementioned exemptions (French customs are open around the clock). Below you will find the opening hours and contact numbers of the customs offices of all three countries:
